In Memoriam • NJCU Students

In an effort to honor members of the university community who have passed away — including students, alumni, and active or retired faculty or staff — the Office of Marketing and Communications has introduced an In Memoriam section of our website for loved ones and friends to leave memories and tributes on In accordance with NJCU's new In Memoriam policy, this page is dedicated to honoring those actively enrolled students who we have tragically lost.

When possible, we will link to obituaries, news articles or other sources to honor the deceased. If you would like to leave remembrances or tributes to the deceased, please complete our In Memoriam form.

If you would like to submit information for the In Memoriam page, please contact
