Jason, beloved son of Giuseppe and Giuseppina Coppola- devoted brother to John, Robert and late Anthony Coppola. He is also survived by nieces Theresa Baldasare and Sophia Coppola; nephew Nicholas Coppola and great nephew James Baldasare.
Jason – a gentle giant, who was much loved by family and friends in Brooklyn, Boston, Florida, New Jersey and New York. He was owner of Antonio’s Pizza in Metuchen, NJ and enjoyed watching his favorite teams, NY Mets, NY Giants and Napoli’s soccer team. The world has lost an amazing human. Heaven is smiling.
Love you and will miss you so much????????????
I would always feel Jay’s smile before I saw it. He made going to Antonio’s more than just getting pizza. I will miss his friendly conversations and goofy banter.
Known “Jay” for a few years now as my family and I would frequent his pizzeria in Metuchen. He was a warm and welcoming individual with a huge heart. My wife and her family who are from the Edison/Metuchen area have known Jay since he opened the pizzeria. We went there for dinner the other night and my 6 year old daughter was asking where Jay was at. He touched the heart of all ages and kinds. Will truly be missed!
I will always remember the good times we had. Going to Camden Yard’s to watch the Yankees, Lemon Chello throw down. You will be missed my friend.
The first thing I do when visit Metuchen, NJ, the town where we raised our family, is go to Antonio’s Brick Oven Pizza for a chicken parm sub (well done), something they have no clue how to make in Baltimore. They know what I want as soon as they see me. I will miss Jay’s smile, friendly demeanor, and talking about live music and NY sports.
Jason, Brother, I just found out about you today. I am shocked and I am saddened. Going to your restaurant was so much special because I expected to see you there to talk about just about anything. You had this ability to make people want talk to you even if they thought they would be better off in their own cocoon. You found out that I was a vet suffering from PTSD and frankly you made all of us vets, past present and future feel like we were part of your family and your restaurant, a second home. Your death and loss has impacted me today in the same way I lost my comrades and friends in Iraq. Looking back now, I wish I spoke to you more, wish I shook hands with you more and learned more about you and your family. It is rare the realization that you were in the presence of an angel, but that was definitely you. Good bye my friend. Rest In Peace and I look forward years from now, seeing you again in heaven.
