(NEW ORLEANS) (WLS) -- The death of a teenager who wanted to dedicate his life to public service is triggering an anti-violence movement after 18-year-old Joseph Massenburg was killed while volunteering with AmeriCorps.
His parents, both pastors, are sharing their grief.
Those pastors are struggling with the pain they so often help others manage as they search for answers to what happened to their son Joseph, a young man who they say had a gift for giving.
Pastors Andre and Sharon Massenburg's notions of service were imprinted on Joseph, who grew up in the pews, and had just started work with a National Civilian Community Corps Team on March 12.
"He's very charming," said Sharon Massenburg. "He's outgoing, a people person, all the above, never meet a stranger."
Pastors Andre and Sharon want to urge young people to simply respect each other. That they say is the key to ending gun violence
Linda Massenburg, a relative, is a loyal and valued volunteer at The Black Star Project in Chicago.Our condolences to and prayers for the family at this time.
