02/19/1987 - 09/22/2016

AJ Meyer – A kind heart, a loving, caring man, AJ was a joy to all who were lucky enough to know him. Dear son of Regina Frost of Toms River, NJ and Alfred and Elizabeth Meyer of Westfield, NJ. Beloved brother of Kenneth and Laura. AJ was loved by his very large, loud family, including his dear grandparents, John and Regina Frost, grandfather, Alfred J. Meyer, and his many aunts, uncles and cousins. He is predeceased by his sister, Catherine, and his grandmother, Helene Meyer. AJ loved his family, hockey, singing, the Beatles, and sharing a good meal with his many friends around the world. He began his academic years in New Providence and went on to Choate, where he was active in sports, the chorus, volunteer work, and numerous other activities. AJ began his career with GLG, working as an Associate in their Austin, TX office. In 2012, he moved to New York and joined the PE Sales Team, progressing to the role of Vice President. AJ was loved and respected by everyone who knew him and worked with him. Volunteering was second nature to AJ. He coached, taught English as a second language to children and adults, worked at the New York City Food Pantry, and ultimately gave of himself as an organ donor, giving the gift of life and sight to those in dire need. AJ’s passion for hockey started early, playing youth hockey with the New Jersey Devils, NJ Rockets, Connecticut Yankees, and then later at Choate and at Middlebury College. AJ continued his love for the game, playing hockey with his buds on St. Nick’s in NYC. We will remember his smile, his booming laugh and personality, his joy, and his enthusiasm for life.
