The Late Justice Gua sadly passed away on 29 April, 2021.

Justice was born on Siassi island in Morobe Province, and was a proud son of the island - even after moving away he maintained strong links with his community and his extended family, providing support wherever he could. He grew up in Goroka and attended the University of Papua New Guinea. 

Justice was a father to four wonderful children and a husband to Monica Kassman. His children were his pride and joy and he dedicated himself to providing them with opportunities, especially to their education at which they have excelled. His eldest daughter is currently studying at university in Australia. 

Justice was a development professional with a long and rich career. He held a number of strategic leadership roles and worked for several agencies including the United Nations, AUSAID, the private sector and over two decades, for a number of Australian government funded projects that provided aid assistance to Papua New Guinea. He used his skills and expertise to develop communities, districts, and provinces across the country working in numerous sectors including health, education, infrastructure, and governance. Through his work he improved the lives of countless people, communities and sectors - in doing so he made a rich contribution to the development of his country. He was passionate about change and dedicated his life and career to the development of his country. 

Justice was known and respected for the values that he upheld, for his professionalism and his integrity which came to define his career. He was a jovial and kind person who would go out of his way to help others and served as a mentor for numerous young professionals. 

He was a great friend, colleague, leader and mentor and will be missed by many.

If you would like to make a contribution to the education of Justice's children, please do so here:

Dear Justice,
You left our sister and children and the Kassman clan too soon tambu. Your legacy at Toutu is the best house in our village that your proud mother in law resides in when she is not living at yours. Such is the love that you fostered for your dear wife and indeed your mother in law - aunty Shiela. Such a loving and caring nakimi... we mourn your departure with terrible sadness for your kids and our sister. May your beautiful soul rest in eternal peace. Love Jonathan Kassman and family.

Gone too soon bro.
I met Justice at UPNG in the 90's, he grew up at Yonki and regarded himself a Kainantu boy. All the EHP boys played rugby for the Nokondi club and he was our fullback.
Never a harsh word did I hear from him. Always kind, thoughtful and generous to others. These qualities never left him as I met him at different occasions and meetings as our paths crossed in our careers.
We called each other "Member" (of parliament) as a running joke.... it was a job we both never wanted. Ironically, we both ended up doing development and having to deal with MPs in our line of work.
I will miss the jokes and your infectious humour. Rest well my brother, my member.....God bless,

PNG has lost an incredible life. On behalf of the Enga Provincial Government and the team that he worked with through his various capacities with development partners, it is with much sadness that I wish to convey our sympathies to the children and their mother on the loss of your father and husband. Let it be known that he was a good man to all who knew him. May his soul rest in peace.

Justice was a joy to work with and had the innate ability to make anyone feel at ease in his presence. I had the honour of working with Justice while employed at Abt and will cherish our chats and the guidance he offered me whenever I needed.

I am incredibly saddened to hear of his passing. My prayers and thoughts go out to his wife and children. I know the pain of grief of losing a loved one all too well.

May God be your comfort during this time.

Rest In Eternal Peace, Justice.

On behalf of the Ex PNGBC staff of the International Operations Division of the then PNGBC, I pass our sincere condolences to Justice's family on the sudden passing of a good husband and father.
JAG, as we call him back in the PNGBC days, was a cheerful humble and a hard working person. He was a friend to all and enemy to none. He had his own work ethics, which made him so unique, and he delivered results.
We had our days back then. He is also more cheerful socially. When we have social events with regards to office or just a comradeship socializing, JAG is always there, doing his best to make sure everyone is in a good happy mood.
Will miss you for sure Brother JAG.
We have lost a loving father and husband, an instrumental mentor, a cheerful and caring person, and also a TRUE FRENDO to every individual, whom he has come cross our path, in our journey of life.

Rest in Eternal Peace FRENDO JAG.

We have never spoken, nor have we met. However, we do know your eldest daughter very well. She is a mindful, kind, considerate, and a respectful person committed with a quiet determination and a great sense of humour. A wonderful person to be around.

These qualities have been instilled by her parents, and is without a doubt a reflection of yourself. Kudos to you.

Never having had the opportunity to meet you is our loss.
RIP Justice.

Tim, Jules and family

On behalf of our entire ABC and MDI team, I extend our deepest sympathies to Justice's family, friends and colleagues at this terrible time.

We are deeply saddened by Justice's passing. It is such a loss of a wonderful, talented, inspiring and caring person who we regarded as a friend as well as a colleague and mentor.

It was a privilege to have known Justice, to have benefited from his knowledge and passion for PNG and development, and to have enjoyed his humour and friendship.

Justice was deeply respected by us all and we are forever grateful to him for his guidance, support, professionalism and friendship. We mourn his loss. We will miss him very much. Rest in peace Justice.

I am blessed to have known Justice and am so saddened by the news of his passing. I reconnected with Justice when he joined Abt and he quickly became a trusted confidante. HIs qualities were apparent on our first meeting - a humble leader who showed so much compassion. At Abt, Justice was looked upon for guidance by all staff. He was a role model to the young ones who will follow in his footsteps. We have all been enriched for having known Justice. My heartfelt condolences go out to the Gua family. Sarah

Devastated and so sad to hear of the loss of the Late Justice for his family, PNG, and all of us who were lucky enough to be friends and colleagues with this very fine and remarkable human being. I value the time I had working with you in the Law and Justice program more then 10 years ago and again in the governance program, and I was always so pleased to see you throughout the years and to hear of your continuing leadership and fine career. Loved that laugh and your humour as well as your deep thinking and integrity about your country, development, and life. Treasured memories. My thoughts are with you and the children Monika at this heartbreaking time and I hope these many tributes reinforce your pride in him and yourselves. Vale Justice

Dear Monica, Chantelle, Dinish, Zamika and Danby

We are extremely saddened by the sudden loss of your beloved husband and father and feel the unimaginable sorrow you are going through. We will never understand why it happened to an exceptionally wonderful man we have come to know. May you get comfort that he had built your foundation as a husband and father and that you will pass through this very difficult time and let his legacy live on in your lives. Your lives will be different without Justice but we know that he had prepared you well to face the future ahead and would be a very proud husband and father for his investment in his children whom he loved dearly.

Justice was a down to earth person, friendly, cheerful and a very kind person. Yet very intelligent and had a very good sense of humor. His happiness rubs off easily on anyone that came to know him and feel that they have known him for years. We have come to know this very amazing man through work that extended to our family units and we will forever be grateful of his memories that touched our lives.

Justice was a champion development professional who rose to the pinnacle of his career, backed by his passion for development of our beautiful PNG. He would have easily landed a job anywhere else in the world but he loved serving his country to the very end. His leadership and mentorship were second to none. As Papua New Guineans, we are proud of his personal and professional achievements.

We will miss his smile and are very grateful to have known him as a colleague and dear friend and will cherish his memories forever.

Thankyou for sharing your husband and father with everyone of us who got to know him.

Cardno would like to pass on our sincerest condolences and deepest sympathy to Monica and the family of Justice following his untimely passing. We are all very saddened by the news. Many of us, myself included, worked directly with Justice in the Law and Justice sector but also stayed in touch and followed his career in development in PNG with great interest. We had great respect for Justice as a colleague and tremendous regard for him as a person. He will be sorely missed. Our thoughts remain with Monica and the family.

Justice, JG, Bossman, it has been an honor and pleasure getting to know you and working with you. Justice was a man of the people, easy going and full of joy. He was a well respected and humble man that most looked up to and depended on.

I first met him at the Abt Legal & Compliance induction that we both had attended, and because he was so humble I thought he was also new to the facility, little did I know there was a mountain of knowledge and experience behind that humbleness. Throughout the years, I got to witness and experience what most colleagues had already known, Justice was truly an intelligent individual with a humble heart.

Justice, thank you for the mentorship and memories. I am privileged to have had you as a colleague, a leader, a mentor, and as a friend. You will be greatly missed but your memories will remain with us, and your legacy will live on through your wife and children. RIEP JG

Justice - you were an amazingly warm, intelligent and wise man, a leader, a proud Papua New Guinean, reliable, funny, and dedicated to making a difference and to nurturing your family. I will always remember the way you mentored and supported your expat colleagues in law and justice, along with the late Stephen Mokis, to understand PNG's decentralised governance system and to appreciate the strengths and joys of PNG - culturally and politically. You were always honest about the challenges but clear that they sat alongside many strengths. You then took your wisdom and passion into other programs and we watched you grow as a leader, a person of immense integrity, and a loving father and friend. To lose you and Iva in a few weeks is a great sadness for PNG and for your families.  I cannot believe that you have left us too - I will always be thankful for knowing you, for your life and for your generous and lovely spirit. In great sadness. Elizabeth M

It was an honour but also a great pleasure to work with Justice. His kindness, professionalism and integrity came through every day, as did his friendly and genuine presence. PNG and all of us have been lucky to have him. My deepest sympathies and best wishes.
Posted by Ricky Kumung on May 4, 2021
Justice was a genuine person. Papua New Guinea has lost one of its most profound development professionals
Of course, Justice was a brother and great friend.
Justice was always a delightful person, humble, diligent, intelligent focusing on relationships than rules and always give everything in all he does.
Life is measured by donation and not by duration – in the field of development his contribution is immeasurable, were beyond projects and activities completed on time – but relationship and respect will be timeless memory and legacy for his contribution.
It is indeed difficult to express in words the loss and pain.
My deepest sympathies to his family and colleagues at work.
My God comfort all through the Holy Spirit at this time of sorrow

While it has been a long time since I worked with Justice (AusAID, 2006) - it was with great sadness that I heard of his passing. I have quietly watched his career over the years, happy to see him do so well and be so respected. When I think of Justice, I have a lasting memory of his cheeky smile, his soft voice full of wisdom, patience for all of us new to PNG and a passion for his work. Such a beautiful and humble man.

Thank you for being such an amazing friend and colleague over the years JG. I will remember you fondly for so many things - the cheeky smile that always made me think you were up to something, the footy bets paid in cake, our adventures across the country on field trips and the knowledge and wisdom you shared with me every day. You were a man that loved his country and wanted to make it the best it could be. That legacy will live on.

I am very sad to hear this news. I was fortunate to have met and worked with Justice whilst working on IF Coffey program in moresby 2010-2013. Justice was one of the nicest, most polite happiest person I have met, a genuine soul and a clever development professional. I’ll never forget he made me feel so welcome to the office as I was new to PNG also. My heart goes out to Justice’s family children and close friends and colleagues. RIP justice you will be missed by all.

The recently engaged team of STAs on the ESPA IPA will miss his leadership and services, as he was an integral part of and played a pivotal role in the exercise we just embarked on which is only into few weeks.

Thank you Justice, for your varied contributions to PNG .

Rest In Peace with your maker.

Bikpela man. I remain shocked at learning of this sad and tragic news. Oh Justice - your positive attitude, infectious smile and welcoming character made you stand out as a true people-person when we worked together in AusAID. Your mastery of Aidworks (the aid management system) wowed many of us and you were always ready to help us out whenever we fell short of utilising it correctly. You were a giant in more than one ways. PNG has lost a truly dedicated and solid development professional. You will remain a champion to many. My deepest sympathies to the family. You will be in our prayers.

Dear Justice, you were a trail blazer, mentor and amazing work colleague during our time in AusAID and the many other times our paths crossed within the international development sector in PNG. Always calm and smiling, a gentle and firm leader, flexible and easy to work with. Thank you for being an inspiration to many of us in the sector who came after you. Go well my friend.

To Monica, the four children, their small aunty and bubu meri, we extend our heartfelt condolences to you all and seek God's grace during this time of sorrow upon you all that are the most closest to this brilliant person, Justice in everlasting peace my friend, tambu brata and uncle to Neville and Hezron.

Justice was more than a work colleague, he was a good friend and a special brother. From University school mates to PNGBC graduate bankers then to AusAID work colleagues; Justice was quite soft spoken and had an infectious happy smile. He also had a very brilliant mind and was very passionate in his work. Justice was also proud of his young family and often talked about them at work.
We will miss those jokes JG - especially the ones that turned every dull day into laughter full of tummy aches and reminded us that this world was meant to be a happy place.
But God has his plans and you are very much in a more happier and safer home in Heaven.
Rest Peacefully now brother. Sincere condolences Monica and your children and rest of your families.

Justice - I still can't believe that you're gone. You were a glue that held us all together. You were the person to turn to for the most complicated questions and could always find a solution to any problem. You always brought joy to every interaction. You never complained. Nothing was ever too much for you. You were remarkable in every way. I'm so grateful to have known you and am so, so sorry that you're gone. My sincere condolences to the Gua family. I hope these tributes give you some insight into how much Justice meant to all of us.

It was my privilege to know Justice and I am grateful I had the opportunity to also work with him and learn from him. I was always appreciative of his support, loyalty and kindness. Regardless of other priorities Justice always made time for others and to offer guidance or advice. He was well respected by all who knew him and yet was humble in every way. Justice will be mourned and missed by many and will be remembered for all that he was as a man, a friend and a colleague.

Justice, I had honour of working alongside you for two years and you have taught me so much. Your fierce intelligence coupled with humility always left me in awe of your leadership style and character. Thank you for sharing your wisdom, advice, insights and jokes with me. Sending thoughts, love and prayers to the Gua family.
Posted by Jeremy Syme on May 3, 2021
Justice was wise but he was humble; his advice was considered but spontaneously shared; he was reliable but on occasion surprising; he was passionate yet he was patient; he had a laugh that made you smile when you heard it from afar and join in heartily when you were nearby; a team-player and team-builder, he was always accessible be it work or play; he was energetic but gentle…
Yes, most of all he was gentle, in his approach, in his delivery and even when pointing out you got it wrong!
Justice was a Gentleman whose life whilst far too short had great impact on those with whom he worked, on his community and on his country
It is unfortunate that it often takes the shock of loss to prompt us to reflect on the value of those around us. I am sure JG would gently remind us to do better?
Posted by Rebecca Hanify on May 3, 2021
Dearest Justice. I’m still coming to terms with your loss. I’m heartbroken for your darling family. You were a great, great friend to my mother and you became part of our family.

It's hard to imagine a world without Justice. His loss is devastating for his family and all the many people he has befriended, supported, encouraged and heartened with his kindness, his integrity, his concern for those less fortunate. PNG has lost a leader and a talented son who was an example to us all with his great smile, his "can do" approach to life. To Monica and their children, my heartfelt condolences. Justice was a colleague, a friend and a big brother I will miss dreadfully.

Hi Monica

We can’t begin to understand how you and the kids must feel at this time. Please know that you and the family are our thoughts.

Justice was special person to so many people. The tributes so far are testament to this.

In our conversations at work we spoke often of our families and how much we enjoyed them. We heard about you and each of the children, how they were going at school and what hobbies they enjoyed. He was a proud father and husband.

We are grateful to have known him and spent time with him.

Our thoughts are with you and family.

Albert Einstein said "The value of a man should be seen in what he gives and not in what he is able to receive". A very humbled, sincere and giving man, devoted to his Family, friends and the people whom he served through his work. I found wisdom, guidance, discipline, respect, devotion and everything in one person. He was the wealth of knowledge and support that we all, privileged to have worked directly under him, will forever be grateful for. Thankyou for continually inspiring and mentoring me to do my best.

A good heart has stopped but a good soul has ascended.

So sad to hear this tragic news of such a great man passing away so suddenly without us unknowingly what had happened. On behalf of Geospatial Survey and Mapping Solution Ltd, we share this time of grieve with the staff of Abt and especially the family of late Mr Gua. We came to work with Abt Associates and in the course of our duty came to know such a great man full of compassion and as always a smile to brighten the dull day. Knowing Justice from the day we met till his untimely passing, one thing that was learnt from this great person is self control and making the best decision in life. Justice has been a remarkable person and a mentor to his colleagues he always help support and groom to lead. Thank you Justice for all you have done for us, you were the light to many of us. You are a champ! RIEP buddy.

Justice was a wonderful man who gave far more then he took. Whenever we met he expressed his love and pride in his family. His development knowledge and political antenna always kept Esther and I out of trouble. He was a great co-worker and friend and I count myself lucky for having known him.  
Posted by Stella Koaipura on May 3, 2021
Like many other, Justice has left a huge vacuum no one and nothing can be able to fill. Being in his leadership, his passion to support, advise and guide is something that will be greatly missed forever!

Just having him around always gives me comfort and assurance that I will make it through the day and that I believe is because of the confidence he has in me and on the other hand, will never stop fighting for us. He would never turned away any one approaching at his door.. ("yes come in!" ) - even if he is at the point of meeting a deadline. 

I never thought there will come a time when I will get to write on such a site, expressing how much I am missing from such a great boss, mentor, leader and a hero (brother and of course our buai sessions), because I knew that he is someone who is so full of life and has a long way to go in living his life, for his family and Papua New Guinea as a whole.

Justice, you have left many of us heartbroken and shuttered and you will be greatly missed FOREVER.

Rest In Eternal Peace, Justice.

"Bro", as I always would call you when you come to check me on the Incentivefund project - Sideia Catholic Health Centre rehabilitation project - on Sideia Island Milne Bay Province.    It was truly a great honour to know you. You were truly  a humble person who had the passion to put PNG people first.  Getting myself involved with a Development Agency and implementing a such a large grant, Justice on his visit would find me timid and would quickly give me his smile and says "You not along, we are together, together we will successfully complete your project"    You left too soon when the country still needs you.  You were a born-leader with dynamic personality, a mentor, a friend and a brother.
I can recall inviting you for a dinner with my family during one of your project visits, after dinner we had all the laughter and off course enjoyed the "buai". Bro, thank you so much and my your soul rest in eternal peace.

You will always be remembered for your sincerity, humour and professionalism.  You were a pleasure to work with and to be friends with you was a honour. I believe over the many years we knew each other and worked together we had a special bond; you were not just a professional colleague, but I regarded you a great friend, a brother and sometimes my son. We traveled the country together, we achieved many things, shared plenty of jokes and we both created many wonderful memories, which I will always treasure.
You were a natural leader and a true family man who will be greatly missed by many. My thought are with Monica and the family.

So saddened to hear the news of Justice’s passing. PNG has lost a development icon who was loved and revered by many. My thoughts and prayers are with his family. Fly high Justice
