Obituary of Jennifer Y Paragano
Jennifer Y. Paragano passed away on November 3, 2023. She was 36 years old.
Born to parents Vincent and Kathryn (Ringhausen) Paragano, Jenn was a lifelong resident of Bernardsville, NJ. She was a woman of great faith and a parishioner of Our Lady of Perpetual Help Church in Bernardsville. Jenn found great joy in teaching 4th and 5th grade CCD and participating in the music ministries.
Jenn was also a proud dog mom. Her beloved and faithful canine companion, Maggie, had been a loving friend for over 10 years.
A silly and inspirational woman with a great sense of humor, Jenn frequently sent letters to loved ones filled with words of encouragement and jokes. She was active in multiple online community groups, helping others to process difficult experiences and navigate struggle. Jenn donated time, money, and resources religiously to many charities.
Jennifer is survived by her parents, her sister Laura, brother Matthew and his wife Stacy, grandmothers Eileen Paragano and Yvonne Ringhausen, nephew Vincent, niece Zara, and her pup Maggie.
