In the past six months, more than 14,000 lives have been lost to complications related to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic in New Jersey.

Across the state, journalists are working together to help families and friends tell the stories of those people whose lives have been cut short.

Titled “Loved and Lost,” its goal is to name every New Jersey resident who died from COVID-19-related complications, and to celebrate their lives.

If you would like to participate, contact us using the form below, and a journalist will connect with you to help tell your story.

The project is coordinated by the Center for Cooperative Media at Montclair State University and NorthJersey.com, and is funded partly by a grant from The Nicholson Foundation.
