SCOTCH PLAINS/FANWOOD, NJ -- The Fanwood/Scotch Plains community is mourning the death of Marco M. Giasullo, 31, who died suddenly on Saturday, June 8, 2019, at his home in Dover.
Giasullo grew up locally and was a 2005 graduate of Scotch Plains Fanwood High School where he was a pitcher for the varsity baseball team. His coach, Tom Baylock, remembered him fondly as "the No. 2 pitcher on the 2004 Union County Championship team and one of the funniest kids on the team." Giasullo went on to play for a year in college and later graduated from the University of Rhode Island with a Bachelor’s Degree in Economics in 2010.
After college, Giasullo spent two years in Rhode Island doing commercial lending with Wachovia (Wells Fargo). He then worked in private banking upon his return to New Jersey. He was a loyal Yankee fan, a golf enthusiast, and also loved music, whether it was playing his guitar or mixing beats on his computer software program.
Marco Giasullo is survived by his father, Robert Giasullo and his wife, Teresa Parente Giasullo; his mother, Bonni Martin; sisters, Briana Giasullo and Micaela Parente; step-sister, Alexandra Miller; step-brother, Sean Orban and his wife, Julie; and his aunt, Caryl Watkins. He is also survived by his step-nieces and step-nephews, Rebecca, Sarah, Julia, and George Miller, and Arius and Emerson Orban.
