JOPLING: Dustin George Jopling ( Oct. 20, 2021–Feb. 7, 2024 ). Dustin George Jopling, son of Meredith and Jake Jopling of Dallas, Texas, passed away unexpectedly on Feb. 7, 2024. Dustin was a brave and courageous boy whose time with us was too short but whose impact was immeasurable. Born only 1 pound, 12 ounces, Dustin entered our world fighting, a tiny beacon of light amidst uncertainty. From the very beginning, he radiated love and exuded joy to all who crossed his path. Despite facing numerous challenges, Dustin embraced life with unparalleled enthusiasm. His love knew no bounds, extending to people, dogs, books and airplanes — each one a source of wonder and delight for him. His beautiful smile had the power to light up even the darkest of rooms. Dustin lived every moment of his too-short life to the fullest, teaching us invaluable lessons about perseverance, courage and the enduring power of love. Though his time with us was brief, the impact he made will echo through the hearts of all who knew him or were touched by his remarkable journey. In Dustin’s 2 years and 4 months on this Earth, he transformed everyone he encountered, leaving behind a legacy of love, joy and inspiration. We take solace in knowing that his spirit will live on in the hearts of all who were privileged enough to share his journey. Dustin’s light will continue to shine brightly in our memories forever reminding us of the beauty and resilience of the human spirit. Dustin is survived by his loving parents as well as his grandparents, Peggy and Mark Jopling ( of Mars, Pennsylvania), and Bonnie and Mike Grossfeld. He is also survived by loving aunts and uncles, Zach Jopling, Marc and Ashley Grossfeld, Emily and Brett Luskey, and his cousins Jacob, Jonathan and Sarah Grossfeld, and Caleb, Sydney and Olivia Luskey.
