On October 20, 2011, our beloved Julian Joshua Brett Benson was called to a better place at the young age of 23. Julian was born in Sicklerville, NJ on April 8, 1988.
Julian attended Winslow Jr. and Sr. High School during those years is when he began to recognzie his gift to communicate. At the same time, he touched people's lives with his positive attitude and charismatic charm. Julian was a very outgoing student he was involved in TV production, Good Morning Winslow as their sports anchor, Marching Band, and Renaissance Club. He was crowned his Jr. year as homecoming King for 2005 and later during his Sr. year as Mr. Winslow 2006. After graduating from Winslow High School in 2006 He attended Morgan State University in Baltimore, MD. Julian was a one-of-a-kind friend, mentor, and counselor to many. He spent his short time on earth experiencing the world and living life to the fullest.
During his time at Morgan, he accomplished many great things. Some of his achievements include, his first online radio show, Real Talk, which debuted in 2008. Shortly after, he interned for Baltimore's number one morning show, The Big Phat Morning Show, and worked as a Marketing Representative for both Atlantic Records and The Maryland Transit Authority. Even though his career was blossoming Julian knew he had to return to his first love, Morgan State. In 2009, Julian ran and was later crowned- Mr. Morgan State University.
After a very successful tenure as Mr. MSU, Julian wanted to embark upon a more personal goal and business venture. In September 2011, Julian began a new venture when he launched "Where's Julian?" a video diary documenting his life travels, which highlighted him on a series of adventures with family and close friends. Through this project the world was able to experience and witness the vibrant soul that those closest to him knew and loved.
Because of his tenacity and his dedication to both self-growth and professional development, we have decided to create The Julian Joshua Brett Benson Foundation. We are dedicated to serving our community to the fullest by doing service projects in the community.
