Steven Nathaniel Wolkoff
Justice is most often depicted with a set of scales typically suspended which measures the strengths of a case's support and opposition. 
The scales to me symbolizes the power of Reason and Justice, which may be wielded either for or against any party.

Justice should represent objectivity, in that it is or should be meted out objectively, without fear or favor, regardless of money, wealth, fame, power, or identity.

Justice For my son Steven Nathaniel Wolkoff begins in a Court of Law Trial starting on March 29th, 2016. 

Hopefully we will prevail in honor of his memory by holding those accountable for his wrongful death and in recognition of the most painful loss that Parents can suffer in losing their beloved child.




                               Steven's Song (CLICK HERE) 

Stevens song was commissioned by and dedicated to, the Wantagh High School BandWantaghNew York, Mindy Dragovich, Conductor, and the Steven Nathaniel Wolkoff Foundation, in memory of Steven Wolkoff.  A former member of the Wantagh High School Band, Steven played trumpet and later found a passion for performing on bass guitar. Professionally, Steven won an Emmy for his work in streaming media and last worked in a senior position at Freewheel.Com. In June, 2008 Steven’s life was cut short by a devastating 5-car collision that occurred south of San FranciscoCaliforniawhere Steven lived.  He was only 30 years old. 

This composition is a quiet and moving work and is meant to serve as a tribute to the life of Steven Wolkoff.  It makes use of simple but haunting harmonies and a melody that will stay with the listener long after its final notes have finished sounding.  

Through the use of piano and the metallic percussion instruments such as bells, crotales, vibraphone, chimes, assorted triangles, finger cymbals and wind chimes, the composer captures the heart and warmth of this young man who was taken from our world far too early.
The words below were sent to me by a friend who after listening to Steven's Song, wrote how she felt. 
"Dear Jerry,
That was one powerful song. Thank you for sharing it . It was well done and well played and a very generous gift to be given.

These are the unsung words for Steven's song:

Into His Own

He came into his own not even knowing he had
A young man, on his way, to meet his dreams
he fell in love with life the day he was born
he sang the songs of his time and played the music he loved.

He met life straight on,
every challenge a joy, a chance to meet destiny and more
he could decode and read things most cannot even begin to know
maybe it was the musician in him, maybe it was the genius.

He brought people in, closer to him just by being himself
those that knew him understood this charisma, this quality
he didn't even know he touched so many people
many that never even met him, yet those who knew him knew this about him.

A son, a brother, a boyfriend, a friend
endless words to describe him.
The one thing they all knew was, he would respond positively to them
and he could probably draw a sell out crowd.

My friend, his father, loved him more than words could ever speak
more than the deepest ocean or brightest sun
this young man, though he is no longer in his father's grasp or hand
has never let go of his son's heart and he never will.

He came into his own, much faster than many older than him ever do
he lived life to its fullest, though there was more to live.
Now, in silence and many times tears, he is remembered and revered
by those who loved him, this young, beautiful man,

My friend's son, Steven Nathaniel Wolkoff,
I have listened to you grieve, heard your voice crack
shared your deepest sorrow
and all I could ever hope for is one moment of peace for you.

May that moment come one day in a dream
in your mind, I know it won't in your heart.
Thinking of you, my friend, tonight and always
Know that your son, came into his own, not even knowing that he had.
