Remembering Justin Logo


Justin was a co-founder and board member of BourBiz, a new way for military members and veterans to connect professionally while enjoying samplings of Bourbon, Whiskey, Scotch and wine. Free of charge to veterans and their families, each expo connects hundreds of veterans with dozens of businesses, universities, government agencies and veteran service organizations (VSOs) in a casual environment. BourBiz designs events that reach junior enlisted members, both current and former. These men and women make up the bulk of our armed forces, but can be some of the most difficult to connect with resources. By offering an environment with live entertainment, prize giveaways, business competitions, celebrity appearances, camaraderie and spirits, BourBiz creates events that engage these veterans.

BourBiz is an initiative by Veteran Success Resource Group (VSRG), a 501(c)3 nonprofit that was developed in 2014 by Justin and his co-partners Scott Davidson. The longtime friends, veterans and entrepreneurs aimed to create a one-stop shop that connects veterans with the knowledge, resources and contacts they need to achieve success after service. But the idea that led to VSRG and BOURBIZ dates to about a decade earlier. As Davidson and Constantine recovered from injuries that ended their military careers, they discussed their difficulties negotiating a deluge of organizations, services and headhunters. Together they wondered how service members with fewer resources managed to find the right person at the right organization.

The BourBiz events have been an incredible success, connecting all members of the military community through events throughout the country, including California, Nevada, San Antonio, Washington, New York and Tampa Bay.
