Dominique Rose Carlesimo
CARLESIMO, Dominique Rose passed away on July 18, 2021. Dominique was born on December 21, 1989 in Englewood, NJ. She is survived by her parents Judee and Kevin, her brother Luke, Grandmother Florence and many aunts, uncles and cousins. When Dominique was 5 yrs old she rode her first pony, Coco - and her love for horses and dogs was born. That connection to animals was inspiring to all who knew her, and it became a treasured hobby through her high school years. Not only did she love to ride horses, but she also loved to volunteer her time to the Pony Power Equine Therapy Program for autistic children. A graduate of the Academy of the Holy Angels, and then Montclair State University with a B.A in paralegal studies, Dominique loved the law and loved a good debate. She had a gift for writing and a sharp wit. Dominique continued her passion and work with animals as much as she could in the doggy day care business called Super Pups in PA - she has touched us all, creatures great and small. As the twinkle in her laughter echoes in our hearts, we will love her forever and miss her beyond measure. Visitation will be at Barrett Leber Funeral Home 148 Dean Dr., Tenafly on Friday, July 23, 2021 from 4-8 PM. Funeral Mass on Saturday, July 24, 2021 at 10 AM at St. Therese Church, Cresskill. Interment Private. In lieu of flowers please mail donations in Dominique's honor to Humane Society of Bergen County 221-223 Stuyvesant Ave. Lyndhurst, N.J. 07071 (201)896-9300.
