All living inductees are expected to attend the 2016 Induction Ceremony; a friend or family member will represent inductees who have passed. The New Jersey Hall of Fame may select additional inductees based on their availability for the ceremony.

John Keegan, Chairman Emeritus of the NJHOF Foundation Board said:

Induction into the New Jersey Hall of Fame is the highest civilian honor that our State can bestow on someone. It’s a celebration of New Jersey and its greatest achievers, and a recognition of role models for our next generation. This is New Jersey’s version of the Academy Awards, so attendees can expect some surprise celebrity appearances."
