  1. Sorry to hear that CJ went to join his other family members in heaven. My condolences. He was always nice to me and gave me a hug as if I was family . I felt like I was part of the Ellis family.

  2. C J Ellis was a great guy to work with as he had strong work ethics . He did not know a stranger. I appreciated his immense love for God. and the United States of America. We enjoyed rivalry over Red River football game between OU and Longhorns. RIP dear CJ
