The New Jersey Hall of Fame highlights Garden State citizens who have completed tremendous accomplishments throughout the years. These people might have once lived in New Jersey or still do today. The New Jersey Hall of Fame says, "The people we celebrate have overcome every imaginable obstacle and challenge. They have survived war, overcome the bleakness of poverty, conquered fear, disability, and rebounded from untold rejections and failure."
Joining the ranks of NJ artists such as Bruce Springsteen, Frankie Valli, and Jon Bon Jovi, NJ natives Connie Francis and Tommy James will be feted on May 7, 2017 at the iconic Convention Hall in Asbury Park.
