Jeffrey W. Mucciolo of White Plains passed away suddenly on Aug. 31 in Clermont, FL.
Jeff attended Darien High School, graduating in 1983, then from Syracuse University, where he studied radio, television and film.
Jeff was a gifted copywriter and interactive advertising expert who worked in the New York City medical advertising industry for the past 30 years.
The passion he had for life came alive in his music. He was an extraordinary drummer and percussionist who made everyone he collaborated with sound better. Through his membership in the Off Wall Street Jam and The Jam NYC he was able to share his musical talent with countless bandmates and audiences.
[Editor’s note: On July 20, he performed an outdoor concert in downtown Darien.]
Jeff combined his work with his drumming passion as the “ringer” for numerous agencies in the industry’s annual Pharmapalooza event.

He was the loving husband of 25 years to the love of his life, Helen (Edwards) Mucciolo, and devoted father to Gabrielle E, and Julianna M. Mucciolo; loving son of Gerald and the late Angelina (Simonelli) Mucciolo of Darien; and the cherished brother of Kathy Mucciolo of New York City, Laurie Mucciolo, and her husband Jason Lekberg also of New York City.
Jeff was also the devoted brother-in-law of Nancy and her husband Kenneth Reinhalter, Karen Edwards, Marjorie and her late husband Lawrence McCarthy III, and the late Joseph G. Edwards III.
Beloved by everyone who met him, especially his nieces, nephews, cousins, bandmates, colleagues and dear friends, Jeff gave his all to everyone he knew and asked for nothing in return.
The world is a better place due to Jeff’s kindness, enthusiasm, wit and his generosity of spirit. The legacy he leaves behind includes the indelible mark he made on his family, friends, and everyone who had the privilege of knowing him.
