Come out and celebrate (virtually) the 27th Birthday of the late Stephanie Parze in an event being held on her birthday, this Friday night.

The Freehold Township native's life on earth was tragically taken from her following a domestic violence attack by her ex-boyfriend John Ozbilgen in 2019.

Since her passing, Stephanie's family and friends, known as 'Stephanie's Angels' who helped in searching for her after she had gone missing, continue to help keep her spirit among us as well as her kindness and joy.

Her Angels and parents are also working to help victims of Domestic Violence attacks.

The Stephanie Nicole Parze Foundation provides help and brings awareness to domestic violence and missing persons and create a variety of different avenues to make help available.

Their mission is to provide education, intervention and support for families dealing with Domestic Violence, Sexual Abuse and missing loved ones.

On February 19 of 2020, which was Stephanie's 25th birthday, her parents, family, friends and the community came together to celebrate her life and all the joy she brought to other people.

Stephanie's Dad, Edward Parze previously told Townsquare Media Jersey Shore News in 2020 that Stephanie would have been embarrassed by the sea of people wearing purple, her favorite color, in her honor, for her birthday last year.

"But she knows how we are. Our family does everything big. We don't do anything small. She would be looking at me like 'dad you did it again. I don't know why but you did it again.' She'd probably be very embarrassed but very appreciative. She'd definitely be thankful for all the people who came out," Edward Parze said.

That night was also the beginning of the Stephanie Nicole Parze Foundation.

On Friday night, 7:00 pm, will you join the Parze family once again in celebrating a truly remarkable person?
