When Johanne Santori/MSNJSA'06 and Chairperson of Ms. NEW JERSEY SENIOR AMERICA, INC needed a Director of Pageants, she searched for Jersey's best, and so it came to pass that she appointed Terry Meade.
Over the years, Terry's boundless energy and tireless efforts have been recognized by Ms. NEW JERSEY SENIOR AMERICA, INC, for creating and directing magnificent Pageants at Harrah's in Atlantic City.
She does, however, share this same energy and passion for another organization, the NEW JERSEY SHARING NETWORK. Mark, her husband suffered a serious heart attack, and for many months, he laid in a hospital bed, waiting for a heart transplant. Luckily his story ended happily, because the NEW JERSEY SHARING NETWORK found a matching donor.
Jersey's Best magazine, wrote an article about the NEW JERSEY SHARING NETWORK, entitled, "The Gift Of A Lifetime," which is featured presently in their summer edition, and can be read on line at: www.jerseysbest.com.
The NEW JERSEY SHARING NETWORK, had planned to celebrate their 30th Anniversary, by staging the 2020 Donate Life Transplant Games later this month in New Jersey at the Meadowlands Entertainment Complex. However, due to COVID-19, the 6 day event has been rescheduled to July 16 - 21, 2021. The mission of the Transplant Games is "to allow people to come together to demonstrate the amazing gift of life, the miracle of transplantation, and the need for more organs."
