Myles Mislavsky passed away in 2018.

He was affable, outgoing, gifted.

That’s how friends described Julian “Myles” Mislavsky, Morristown High School Class of 2013.

They will celebrate his life on Saturday, Sept. 15, 2018, at 10 am at St. Virgil’s Church, at 250 Speedwell Ave. in Morris Plains.

Mislavsky died on Sept. 11 when he fell from a parking deck at Seton Hall University in South Orange, according to authorities. He was 23.

“He was athletic, outgoing, very kind…always trying to help,” said Fredy Martinez, a classmate of Mislavsky since elementary school. “A tall kid, he was knowledgeable about a little bit of everything, he could fit in every group without a problem.”

Martinez said Mislavsky excelled at soccer, wrestling and karate. He also understood web development. The last time they met, a couple of months ago, Mislavsky was eager to create an all-in-one mobile gambling app, his friend said.

Mary Ellen Meslar was Mislavsky’s teacher for the 4th and 5th grades.

“He was an amazing student in all areas. I used to watch him wrestle, too. I just wished him a happy birthday last week, for his 23rd. I am devastated by his passing, and praying for his family,” Meslar said.

Born and raised in Morristown, Mislavsky was a member of Seton Hall’s Alpha Sigma Phi Fraternity, according to his obituary.

The university is planning a memorial service in the future.

Mislavsky is survived by his parents, Judy Martinez and Hector Mislavsky, of Morristown; and a sister, Jessie Mislavsky, of Brooklyn, NY.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations in Myles Mislavsky’s memory be made to DBSA New Jersey (the Depression Bipolar Support Alliance).
