While attending Portland State University as a Graphic Design student, Justin had the opportunity to work for the Portland Trail Blazers in dual capacities. As a part time security guard, he was a member of the facilities management team. He also joined the marketing team as an intern, using his design skills for the Trailblazer web site.

To commemorate his service to the Portland Trail Blazer organization, President Steve Patterson committed to working with the PSU Department of Art under the stewardship of Department Chair, Susan Agre-Kippenhan, to launch an endowment scholarship fund in his name. The "Justin Eyerly Memorial Scholarship Fund" was established in the Department of Art at PSU with a multi year pledge of $40,000 and is open to additional contributions. This endowment will generate funds to help provide a scholarship to a deserving student along with an internship with the Portland Trail Blazers.

The Portland Trail Blazers' generosity and leadership in helping launch this scholarship is an ongoing testament to Justin's creative spirit. Our aim is to continue to raise funds so that Justin's legacy can benefit more students through scholarships to support their education.

Donations may be made out to the Justin Eyerly Memorial Scholarship and sent to:
