Nicholas J Grillo

Nicholas J Grillo


Nicholas J. Grillo was born on May 1, 1981 in Jersey City to Salvatore Grillo & Teresa (Spaldo) Grillo. A resident of North Arlington since 1983, he has spent most of his life in Jersey City. A graduate of Holy Rosary School, Jersey City, he was raised in a close-knit Italian American community, the center of which was Holy Rosary Church, the first Italian parish in the State of New Jersey. It was at Holy Rosary and in downtown Jersey City where Nick, at a young age, met many of the treasured friends he still has today. 

In 1995, he went on to Queen of Peace High School, North Arlington. By the age of 17, Nick accepted his first position as a Parish Music Director/Organist for St. Joseph's Church, East Orange. This was the beginning of many years in Liturgical Music and active participation in the Church, both in music and in fundraising. 

In 2005, he graduated from Caldwell College (now Caldwell University) with his B.A. in Music. After serving for several years as Music Director and Organist for Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church in the Ironbound section of Newark and St. Cecilia Church in Kearny, Nick returned in October of 2013 as the Organist and Music Director of his parish, Holy Rosary Church, Jersey City. 

Having developed a great love for serving others through his music ministry and through his work with La Festa Italiana, Nick, even early in his career, sought out additional ways to share his talents. Immediately after he graduated from Caldwell College, Nick decided to consider a future in Funeral Directing. In 2005, he began his internship with the Introcaso- Angelo Funeral Home in Jersey City.  He entered the American Academy McAllister Institute of Funeral Service, in New York City and graduated in August of 2007.  He was a intern & funeral director with the Introcaso-Angelo Funeral Home for 10 years. 

In March 2015, he completed his purchase of the Levandoski Funeral Home of Bloomfield, New Jersey. Now known as Levandoski-Grillo Funeral Home & Cremation Service, Nick is looking forward to serving the many families of Bloomfield, Montclair, Glenridge, Nutley and surrounding areas as many are of Jersey City decent.  Nick, compassionate and sensitive to the needs and feelings of grieving families, strives to always give thoughtful service and to help alleviate their burden at their time of need. 

He also has spent much time arranging out of town funerals for friends and family members who do not live in Bloomfield or Jersey City.  Nick still handles every aspect of the funeral utilizing the comfort of another funeral home closer to the family's residence.
