Sara Jane Armuth Joins Imagine's Board of Trustees


MOUNTAINSIDE, NJ - Sara Jane Armuth has joined Imagine's Board of Trustees.  Originally  from Baltimore, Maryland, Sara Jane has been a Westfield resident for nearly 20 years. After receiving a BA in Economics from the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, Sara Jane managed corporate retirement plans for T. Rowe Price and Bankers Trust. 

Sara Jane stopped working to spend more time with her two sons, Matthew and Jeremy, now 21 and 16. In this period of Sara Jane’s life, her commitment to raising a family was her top priority. She enjoyed being part of their day-to-day lives and appreciating the small moments of watching her sons grow up.

In 2013, Sara Jane joined the team at Temple Sinai in Summit, NJ to help create their Early Childhood Education Program. Starting a program from scratch entailed a variety of responsibilities, including day-to-day administration, licensing, and working directly with the families. Working with young children has always had a special place in Sara Jane’s heart, and Temple Sinai gave her a chance to tap into that in a professional setting for the first time.

Sara Jane lost her father suddenly at age 7, and never had a formalized support system to guide her through life’s challenges. When Sara Jane found Imagine, she felt deeply connected to the children and to Imagine itself. She is excited to join the board, and looks forward to making a difference.

She lives in Westfield with her husband Lenny, two sons Matthew and Jeremy, and dog Lucy.

Imagine provides free year-round peer support groups for children age 3-18 who have had a parent or sibling die with concurrent groups for parents and guardians.  Free support groups are also available for young adults 18 and up who have had a friend, sibling or parent die.  For more information about Imagine visit their website at or contact or 908-264-3100
