New Jersey Lottery celebrates $21M jackpot winners
Two Holmdel Township residents have landed a jackpot worth a whopping $21.5 million
. The couple took home the cash prize thanks to a winning Pick 6 ticket. Robert Talerico will keep his electrical contracting company. His spouse Amelia Talerico used to work as a school teacher.
The couple opted for a lump-sum payout and claimed their jackpot at the lottery office. They were accompanied by their daughter, family lawyer and bookkeeper. A New Jersey Lottery spokesperson declared that the jackpot will have a massive impact on their lives.
No plans to retire
A representative of a legal company noted that the jackpot doesn't necessarily have to change their lives. "Robert and Amelia are a happy married couple and they will continue their normal lives. They first want to let things sink in and think what they will do with the money. Robert has no plans to retire," he said.
