Earlier this week, it was announced that PMMI Director of Expositions A.J. Janosko, who was 45, passed away suddenly as the result of an accident over the weekend, and now the A.J. Janosko Education Trust has been established for his two sons.

In lieu of flowers, his family is asking people to please donate to the trust. 

In addition, funeral arrangements are as follows:

Calling hours will be 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Tuesday, July 1, at Advent Funeral & Cremation Services (7211 Lee Hwy, Falls Church, Va.).

Mass of Christian burial will be celebrated Wednesday, July 2 at 2 p.m. at St. James Catholic Church (905 Park Ave, Falls Church, Va.). 

Janosko worked on a portfolio of shows at PMMI that included PACK EXPO Las Vegas, which drew more than 23,000 attendees and 2,700-plus exhibitors last year to the Las Vegas Convention Center, and the PACK EXPO International show, which will be held in November in Chicago’s McCormick Place and draws more than 40,000 attendees, among others.

“It didn’t take long for him to become an integral member of the PMMI staff,” Yuska said. “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.”
