Jeff and Angela Umosella, and family, have pledged $2 million to the school. The $2 million gift was announced during St. Joseph Academy’s (SJA) Open House held on October 14, 2021. The gift will be provided to the school over the next four years and marks the largest gift in SJA’s history.
“This is an amazing day for us. The tremendous generosity and support from the Umosella family will allow us to continue to grow and pursue new opportunities for students and faculty,” said SJA President Stephen Cappuccio.
Umosella is a 1988 graduate of St. Joseph’s High School and currently serves as the Chief Development Officer at US LBM and is the President of New Jersey‐based Universal Supply, a division of US LBM. Umosella is also the Chairman of SJA’s Board of Trustees.
Umosella shared that he is excited and proud to make this commitment. “More than anything else, this gift represents my belief in St. Joseph Academy’s future. This school is a special place that continues to produce successful students and athletes who excel in college and then go on to be productive and responsible adults. There’s a lot of excitement and growth happening, and I’m proud to be able to provide its current and future students with the best academic opportunities.”
SJA announced last week that it has partnered with the Town of Hammonton to develop a new turf field at the Hammonton Recreational Complex located on Moss Mill Road and that it installed Stephen Cappuccio, formerly of St. Augustine Preparatory School, as its President/Head of School. St. Joseph Academy is one of New Jersey’s premier co‐educational college preparatory schools, with a stellar reputation for academics and athletics.
