On January 7, 2022, Joseph Lee "Joe" Sassman Jr. passed away at age 34. Raised in Baltimore, Joe attended Patterson High School and shortly after met the love of his life, Monica. They happily married in 2013. He worked for 16 years for the UPS Warehouse in Dundalk. Joe was a huge Dallas Cowboys Fan, amazing karaoke singer and the light of the party. He could strike up a conversation with anyone and immediately make them feel like family. But his world was his wife and his "girls", the family dogs Sophie and Penny.
"Joe was genuine and good! He was a devout Christian and truly lived by his motto Faith over Fear. He shared that with me as his wife and with everyone he knew"

He was the loving uncle of David, Avery, Noah, Linden, Scarlett (a god daughter) and Jesse, and was also known as Uncle Joe to Abigail (a god daughter) Isabella, Emily, Brandon, and Joe. He was also blessed with an abundance of friends who he considered his family.
