EAST BRUNSWICK — Former state Sen. Jack G. Sinagra passed away this morning at the age of 63, the Senate Republican caucus announced.
“Sen. Sinagra will be missed and fondly remembered as a devoted public servant who gave much of himself to help better the lives of all in New Jersey,” said state Senate Republican Leader Tom Kean Jr. (R-Union). “The Senate Republican caucus would like to offer condolences to all Jack’s family and friends.”
Sinagra represented the 18th District from 1992 until 2001, chairing the Senate Health Committee and serving as a member of the New Jersey Israel Commission; the Task Force on the Affordability and Accessibility of Health Care in New Jersey; the New Jersey Human Relations Council; and the New Jersey Commerce and Economic Growth Commission.
Sinagra also served as East Brunswick’s mayor from 1989-1991 and had been a member of the Township Council prior to that. After serving in the Senate, he was elected Chairman of the Board of Commissioners of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey in December 2001.
