Jack Albano, age 92 of Toms River, passed away peacefully on December 31, 2017, surrounded by his family. He was born and grew up in Brooklyn, NY where he met and married the love of his life, Jeanne, in 1953. They moved to Smithtown, NY in 1963 to raise their young family, spending many happy years with great neighbors, friends, and family on the beautiful Long Island beaches. After his children were grown and his commute on the LIE finally got the best of him, they moved to Bayside Queens and ultimately retired to Toms River where they met wonderful new friends, and had new beaches to discover with their four grandchildren who loved visiting their 'poppy'.

Jack was a proud WWII veteran serving in the US Navy in the Asia Pacific. He was an ultimate salesperson spending most of his career in the food and sugar industry, retiring from Refined Sugars and Syrups in 1992. He lived a very full 92 years filled with family, friends, travel, good food and always sports. He was a passionate fan with the NY Mets and the Giants at the top of his list, though his teams often made him crazy. Although he would have loved to have seen another World Series win, when it came down to it, all he really wanted was to have his family by his side, and the best lawn on the block.

Jack was predeceased by his parents, one sister and six brothers. In addition to his wife Jeanne of 64 years, Jack is survived by his brother Vince; daughter Jackie Sessler, and her husband Keith of Redding, CT, son Chris Albano and his wife Mary of Alpharetta, GA. four grandchildren - Danielle Sessler, Lindsay, Justin and Joe Albano; and many nieces and nephews. His family meant the world to him and he was so proud of them all. He will be greatly missed.
