Jerome P. Domino, Sr., 88, of West Windsor, NJ passed away peacefully on Friday, February 19, 2021 surrounded by his loving family. He was born in Jersey City, served in the U.S. Army in Alaska during the Korean War, and graduated from St. Peter’s College in Jersey City with a B.S. in Accounting.
Jerry began his career as an accountant; however, his employer soon realized that his talkative nature and considerable charm and wit were better suited to a sales position. He became a sales executive and quickly flourished. He later founded a precious metals refining company. He and his wife Julia raised their family in Metuchen, where he was active in community organizations and coached youth sports teams. They later moved to West Windsor.
Jerry was a member of St. David the King Roman Catholic Church, the St. David’s Club, a former president of the Village Grande Civic Association, and a volunteer greeter at the West Windsor Farmers’ Market. He was a history buff and loved poetry, opera music, Spring Lake, Long Beach Island, drives along the Delaware River, and the New York Yankees. He especially enjoyed watching his grandchildren play sports.
Son of the late Thomas and Mary Domino, Jerry was predeceased by his wife Julia and by his brother Thomas. He is survived by his son Jerome Domino, Jr. (Mary Pat), daughter Maribeth, son Mark Domino (Darlene), and son David Domino (Linda); grandchildren Lindsay Friel (Brian), Michael Domino, and Sarah Domino; and by great granddaughter Parker Friel. He is also survived by his sister Rosemarie and by JoHanna, his dear companion. His welcoming smile and engaging personality will be missed by his family, friends, neighbors, and good pals Calvin and Hobbes
A Celebration of Life Mass will be held 10:00 am at St. Paul's Church 216 Nassau Street, Princeton, NJ on Saturday, March 6, 2021.
