PokerRoad Radio Producer and poker player Justin Shronk passed away on April 19th, 2009. The Justin Shronk Memorial Scholarship Fund ("JSMSF") was established in 2009 at the Temple University School of Communications and Theater, to honor Justin's life and passion for his career in communications. Justin graduated from Temple in 2005 with a degree in Broadcasting, Telecommunications and Mass Media (BTMM). At the time of his passing, Justin had established himself as an integral and much loved member of the poker media, having also enjoyed stints working at PokerNews, Bluff Media, and CardPlayer.
The JSMSF is currently providing support for students majoring in BTMM with financial hardship, particularly those whose need has been increased by the loss of one parent, and who may also possess the same absolute zeal for everything media, a similar quick wit, and a loyalty in their friendships, as embodied by Justin.
