 "Having publically spoken for over 20 years through teaching and group facilitation,  I strive to bring my professional speaking skills, wisdom, humor and other talents, to make your ceremony you and your guests will remember for years to come. I look forward to serving others in helping them find their unique script, special needs, poetic words, or perwisonal  for important miilestones." 

-J. Pagano

I have wanted to be an wedding officiant and 

offer other types of life event ceremonies, whether joyous or heart challenging, 

as far back as I can remember. In 2002, I became a Minister of the Universal Life Church of CA, so that I could perform some ceremonies while waiting for an opening for a Justice of the Peace position.  

In April 2018 I was appointed as a Justice of the Peace by the state of MA.

Having worked with so many people for over 20 years in a personal and intimimate capacity, it seemed a natural fit to make ceremonies my next life and career endeavor. Being present for people during times of joy or sorrow brings me great satisfaction in serving others.
