A.J. Janosko, PMMI’s director of expositions, died suddenly Monday after an accident over the weekend. He was 45.  

A.J. joined PMMI in August 2012 to fill a newly created position handling much of the day-to-day show management.

“It didn’t take long for him to become an integral member of the PMMI staff,” says Charles D. Yuska, PMMI’s president and ceo. “When he came on board, A.J. told exhibitors to expect three things from him: Commitment, trust and respect. He lived up to that promise with PMMI members and PACK EXPO exhibitors in every possible way.”

Yuska says losing Janosko was like losing a member of the PMMI family.

“A.J. will be sorely missed, and our thoughts and prayers go out to his family,” he says.

A.J. Janosko is survived by his wife, Tracy, and their sons, Andrew and Jackson.

Funeral and service arrangements are still being finalized. A.J.’s family requests that donations toward an education fund for his sons, to be named later, be made in lieu of flowers.

PMMI is the Association for Packaging and Processing Technologies.
