Rocco was a kind and beautiful soul. He was loved by everyone who knew him. The young gentlemen would light up any room with his contagious smile.  He always made new friends wherever he went.

A lover of sports, he played baseball and football at a young age. He could always be found rooting for his favorite teams – the NY Yankees and the NY Giants during their respective seasons. 

Hardworking and determined, respectful and sweet, an amazing son, big brother, grandson, nephew, cousin, boyfriend, and a loyal friend & teammate both on and off the field.

A scholarship has been set up to honor & remember Rocco’s legacy and to give back to the community which he was so proud to be a part of and a community who fought so hard for him. 

The scholarship will be given to two recipients, one student from Wayne Valley High School and one student from Wayne Hills High School. 

There are multiple ways to donate to the scholarship and participate in upcoming events.

Please sign up to our newsletter or visit our events page which we will be updating with upcoming events and fundraisers to come. So please check back often as we continue to remember Rocco.

This scholarship is funded by the efforts of Wayne, NJ & its surrounding communities. We will continue to honor Rocco with annual events to help build funds to keep the scholarship providing help to student athletes from both Wayne Valley & Wayne Hill High Schools.

We hope you join us in honoring Rocco by attending a future event or by providing a small donation. Our community & Student athletes appreciate your help.
