George Sella Jr.’s 90th Birthday Party

CEO of a Fortune 500 company. Trustee Emeritus of Fairleigh Dickinson University. Captain of the Princeton football team, subject of a NY Times article, husband, father, grandfather… George Sella Jr.’s list of accomplishments seems endless.

While I hadn’t met George until his family surprised him at Newton Country Club in Newton, NJ, I’d have to say that his family is his greatest accomplishment. Everyone there treated me like one of the family, but how they treated George spoke to just how accomplished he really is. A few of his long-time friends — some for over 70 years — gave speeches, and throughout the day, everyone greeted and treated him to hugs, tears, smiles, and even a stunning rendition of Justin Timberlake’s “Can’t Stop The Feeling.”
