PMMI president and chief executive officer Chuck Yuska writes a memorial for A.J. Janosko who passed away this past weekend.
It is with deep sadness that I announce the sudden passing of A.J. Janosko, director of expositions for PMMI, who passed away yesterday as a result of an accident over the weekend. He was 45.
A.J. joined PMMI in August 2012 to fill a newly created position handling much of the day-to-day show management. It didn’t take long for him to become an integral member of the PMMI staff.
When he came on board, A.J. told exhibitors to expect three things from him: Commitment, trust and respect. He lived up to that promise with PMMI members and PACK EXPO exhibitors in every possible way.
Here at the office, we’ve lost a member of the PMMI family. A.J. will be sorely missed, and our thoughts and prayers go out to his family.
A.J. Janosko is survived by his wife, Tracy, and their sons, Andrew and Jackson.
Funeral and service arrangements are still being finalized. A.J.’s family requests that donations toward an education fund for his sons, to be named later, be made in lieu of flowers.
