Loved and Lost, a statewide collaborative to document the lives lost to COVID-19 in NJ

Did you lose a loved one to COVID-19? Add their name to “Loved and Lost“.

As the number of confirmed and probable deaths due to COVID-19 in New Jersey exceeds 16,000, journalists across the state are joining together to tell the stories of the people we’ve lost.

Loved and Lost is a new statewide media collaborative with a goal to name and celebrate the life of every New Jersey resident who died of COVID-19. It is being coordinated by the Center for Cooperative Media at Montclair State University, and is funded in part thanks to a grant from The Nicholson Foundation. The project originally began as an effort led by Record, and MercerMe is a partner.

If you know someone who has died due to COVID-19, please accept our deepest condolences. You can use the form below to submit their name, which will be verified and added to the wall of names on As we are able to, a journalist from one of the partner news organizations in Loved and Lost will be in touch to do a story about your loved one.

If you have any questions about the project, please email
