James “Jimmy” Rusignuolo, lifelong resident of Nutley, passed away peacefully at his home on
January 8, at the age of 72. Jimmy was married to the love of his life Carol (nee Sebastian) for
43 years. He was the devoted father of Daniel and his wife Sharon, Jamie, Greg and his fiancee
Tara and Corrie and her husband Greg. He was the caring grandfather of Nate and Spencer,
who adored their Grandpa. Jimmy is also survived by his brother Robert Rusignuolo and his
wife Marie, sister Dr. Susan Bershad, sister Judy Rusignuolo and sister Linda Ogden and her
husband Steve, as well as many nieces, nephews, cousins, aunts and uncles. He is
predeceased by his parents, Joseph and Virginia Rusignuolo, and mother and father-in-law
Ruth and Anthony Sebastian.

After graduating from Nutley High School in 1965, he went on to Northern Michigan University
and Seton Hall University, where he was the star of the football team. Always recognized for his
natural athletic ability, he was an all-star baseball player in high school and when he went to
college he walked on to the football team without having previously played at any level.
Jimmy founded Coral Construction Company in May of 1976 and ran the business until he
retired in 2019. He was known to all as extremely hard-working, loyal and generous, and was
highly respected by his associates. His company was very successful and his legacy is in the
structures around the state of New Jersey that he was involved in building. In 2010 he won a
prestigious award for the masonry work he did on a new house in Fort Lee.
His greatest joy was spending time with his family, specifically at dinners and Sunday morning
breakfasts when all his children and grandchildren would visit the family home.

A memorial service will be held at S. W. Brown and Son Funeral Home in Nutley.

In lieu of flowers, we ask that donations be sent in Jimmy’s name to Our Lady of Mount Carmel
in Lyndhurst.

I had the pleasure to work with Jimmy on a new house project i was running for CSR in Edgewater Nj. We spent well over a year together working on this unique concrete structure. Not only did Jimmy teach me new construction techniques in working with concrete Jimmy taught me how to be a better man.
