Jennifer Celeste Snyder Bryceland, 44, was folded into her father’s loving arms in heaven on July 5, 2018. From the beginning, her parents, Michael and Beverly Snyder, could see that she had an uncanny way of knowing what your heart needed, and bringing things and people together so you were surrounded by beauty. Whether on the playground in Manchester Township, in college at Rowan University and eventually in her career at Norwegian Cruise lines or her beloved Merrill Lynch/Black Rock, Jen’s ability to love and be loved was limitless. She believed that we were all capable of great things and was the biggest champion of all she knew, encouraging and delighting in the success of others. She recently realized a lifelong dream of becoming a business owner by founding EAST on Long Beach Island, NJ. Jen loved life, especially on the island, collecting shells and friends who brought joy, light and lots of ice cream into her life until the very end. A wanderluster, Jen lived in both Hawaii and Scotland and her travels took her all over the world including to Iceland, Thailand, Bruges and more. To her core, her spirit was gentle, thoughtful, generous and grateful. She brought warmth and coziness wherever she went. She loved her family and friends fiercely and unconditionally. And in return, for so many, she was loved and our beloved. She is predeceased by her father, Michael Snyder, paternal grandparents Anna and Raymond Snyder, and maternal grandparents Estelle and Carlo Soraci. Her passing has left a great sorrow in the hearts of her mother, Beverly Snyder, her sister and best friend, Michelle Bauman and partner Jon Alfisi, nephews Andrew and Alexander Bauman, niece Olivia Alfisi, along with aunts, uncles, cousins and friends. Visitation will take place on Monday, July 16 from 4:00 – 8:00 PM at Anderson & Campbell Funeral Home at 703 Main St, Toms River, NJ 08753. A service will be offered at St. John’s Church in Lakehurst, NJ at 10:00 AM on Tuesday, July 17. Jenny was passionate about helping others tell their truth and making the world a better place for all, therefore, in lieu of flowers the family asks that you consider a donation to Chicago Media Project or the Humane Society.

In speaking for many of our Chicago Media Project members, I wanted to share:

I met Jen at the Camden International Film Festival 3 years ago, when she accompanied her cousin & CMP member, Matt Soraci. Jen was an instant friend, a beautiful spirit, always open and engaging. She was adventurous, curious, and loved documentary film.

Jen shared the past 3 Sundance Film Festivals with us, and in her generous, collaborative way, brought along others who she knew would add to the spirit of the group. Jen was always an “amplifier” - she understood the power of connecting like-minded people and she looked for ways to further connect her network in Surf City with those in Chicago. And if you followed her FB posts, you know how much she honored that Surf City sunrise with her beautiful photographs.

Her passing is tragic; I will miss her deeply.

In honor of Jen’s impact as a CMP member, we will award a grant to the 2019 Lighthouse Film Festival to highlight Jen’s independent spirit. She had always talked about ways to connect CMP to the fest; we feel this is the perfect way to honor her.

Godspeed Jen. You were a great spirit in our community and will be greatly missed.
