Javad played on the Varsity Buff Basketball team and competed for the State championship during his senior year. In May 2001, he graduated from Smoky Hill High School, Aurora.

Javad was a caring and sensitive young man. Being a little brother he always looked up to his sister and they confided in each other. He loved his “Grandpa” and “Grandma.” He always had a brilliant smile, warm hug or a friendly kiss for everyone. His personality brought people together. Javad was known as a loyal and dedicated friend, and his friends came in all cultures, beliefs, and backgrounds. Javad was an active student leader at Colorado State University and was recognized by the city of Fort Collins and CSU at its first Community Civility Awards banquet. He accomplished much in his 22 years of life and in May 2005, Javad successfully graduated from Colorado State University, Fort Collins, with a Bachelor’s of Arts Degree in Speech Communication and Rhetorical Theory.

He had planned to continue his education and pursue a law degree.

Javad loved music, people, event planning and the art of communication. He loved the “spoken word.” He was a Co-Founder, owner, and operator of WAR Entertainment and became the Prince of the city for organizing and prompting urban entertainment throughout Metro Denver. While attending Colorado State he touched the hearts of many. One such friend was Vivian Wolfe. In June 2005, Javad gave Vivian an engagement ring.
