Matthew Griffin Mancuso, 25, passed away peacefully on Friday, November 16, 2018 at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, MA.
Matthew was born on March 5, 1993. He was raised in Rainbow Lakes, Parsippany, New Jersey, and attended Intervale Elementary School, Brooklawn Middle School, and Parsippany Hills High School (Class of 2011). Following graduation, Matthew traveled to North Carolina where he earned both his Bachelor and Masters degrees in Accountancy from Wake Forest University. During this time, Matthew earned top business school awards, his CPA certification, and internships with Dixon Hughes Goodman (Winston-Salem, NC) and PricewaterhouseCoopers (Boston, MA).
In July 2016, Matthew began his professional career with PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) as a full time Associate in the International Tax practice at their Boston headquarters. He excelled in this role and was promoted to Senior Associate in January 2018. Although he spent the majority of his time at PwC as a Tax Specialist, Matthew had recently found his true passion in advancing the company’s technological insights. In July 2018, Matthew was selected to join the inaugural class of Digital Accelerators (DA) at PwC, a program designed to train employees on cutting-edge technology developments. In the short time that Matt was a part of the program, he excelled and became a “go-to” person for his DA colleagues nationwide. According to them, Matthew’s constant encouragement, positive energy, and excitement for the DA program made everyone want to work and learn alongside him.
Outside of academic and professional settings, Matthew was best known for engaging in three types of activities: exploring, volunteering, and laughing with friends. From skydiving, to kite-flying, to becoming a pseudo-expert on Boston’s public transportation system, to traveling and volunteering internationally, to developing the Supplies-Across-Skies donation concept alongside his best friends, Matthew was constantly on a mission to improve both himself and the world around him.
Matthew will be remembered by others as a kind, intelligent, fun-loving, thoughtful, independent, honest, loyal, and confident man of integrity. He is survived and will be cherished dearly by immediate family members, including his mother and father, Dorothy and Anthony Mancuso, and sister and brother-in-law, Andrea and Sergio Ramalho, as well as scores of aunts, uncles, cousins, and close friends.
Relatives and friends are invited to attend Matthew’s funeral mass at St. Mary’s Church (15 Myers Avenue, Denville, NJ) on Wednesday, November 21st at 10:00 am. In addition, there will be visitation hours at Par-Troy Funeral Home (95 Parsippany Road, Parsippany, NJ) on Monday, November 19th between 5:00 and 8:00 pm, as well as Tuesday, November 20th between 4:00 and 8:00 pm.
