“The North Bergen community suffered a great loss yesterday. Mark Sinisi was born and raised in North Bergen and bled red and gold,” Sacco wrote on Facebook yesterday.

“He coached football and softball for the recreation program for many years and had such a huge impact on the development of so many young athletes. Mark was also a county committee man for many years and took his job very seriously. Mark was well known and respected for his dedication to North Bergen. He gave a lot of his time to North Bergen but the rest of his time was dedicated to his beautiful family.”

Sacco continued that his Sinisi’s “daughters were his pride and joy” and also extended deep condolences on behalf of himself and the board of commissioners.

His wake will be held at the Vainieri Funeral Home, 5923 John F. Kennedy Blvd., on Monday, September 11th, from 3 p.m. until 8 p.m.

The North Bergen Giants, under the tutelage of Sinisi, had a perfect season in 2016 (11-0) en route to capturing the Hudson County Youth Football League Lightweight Division Championship for 9- and 10-year-old studer athletes.
