Together with friends, family, and the global football community, the JE3 Foundation is remembering Justin Edinburgh: a one-of-a-kind footballer, manager, and family-man.

The Foundation, which was founded just weeks after the shocking events of 8th June 2019,  has today donated three more life-saving defibrillators in a bid to change outcomes in the face of cardiac arrest, whilst also launching a new website where supporters can learn more about Justin’s story and play a meaningful part in his legacy.

Above all, today is about lovingly remembering the man behind the achievements. Justin Edinburgh had a tremendous impact on people from all walks of life, as he did on the game of football. Charlie Edinburgh, Foundation CEO and Justin’s son, explains:

“The shock never fully retreats. But, in the deepest moments of grief, it’s the stories of individuals, whose lives were touched by him, that inspire us into action so that we can continue his legacy.

Dad lived in the moment and looked to the future with unwavering optimism. This informed our decision to launch our new website and donate defibrillators today — we wanted to commemorate this specific day, remember the man, whilst also bringing supporters into this next phase of the Foundation’s work.
