InfoSteven Fulop is a first generation American who grew up in a typical hard working immigrant family in Edison, New Jersey. His father owned a delicatessen where Steven often helped out after school and on week-ends, and his mother, the daughter of Holocaust survivors, worked in an immigration services office helping others gain citizenship.

Education was always important to Steven. He graduated from Binghamton University, and is currently pursuing his Masters in Business Administration at the New York University Stern School of Business. While attending Binghamton University, he spent time abroad studying at Oxford University in England.

Upon graduating from college, Steven joined Goldman Sachs, the prestigious investment bank first in Chicago and later in downtown Manhattan as well as in Jersey City. After several years working on Wall Street and after being promoted in a very competitive economic environment, he decided to give something back to his country by joining the United States Marine Corps as a reservist. This was not an easy decision in light of Steven's positive career progression, his passion for business, and the need to take a voluntary leave of absence from work in order to accomplish this goal. After finishing boot camp, Steven resumed his job at Goldman Sachs. On January 14, 2003 his Reserve Unit was activated and Steven was deployed to Iraq where he served as part of the 6th Engineer Support Battalion for a period of 6 months, traveling into Baghdad in the early weeks of the war.

In The Community

Steven has always felt that community involvement was both satisfying and beneficial. He has worked tirelessly initially in Chicago at a children's center for mentally, physically, and sexually abused children, in a fund raising capacity. Since moving to Hudson county, he has worked relentlessly towards improving quality of life issues that affect residents everyday. He currently serves in two positions: he is president of the Downtown Coalition of Neighborhood Associations (DCNA) in Jersey City, and also, he is president of The Historic Paulus Hook Association. In these capacities Steven has worked towards improving traffic patterns and parking issues, community safety issues, new development issues, and improving and securing more green space in Hudson County. In the business world, in the community, and in the military, Steven has worked relentlessly to be a contributor at the highest levels.

In Iraq

Steven served in Iraq with the Marine Corps as part of the 6th Engineer Support Battalion focused on engineering, logistics, water purification, and fuel farms. He is the recipient of numerous awards and recognition for his service including the following: Overseas Deployment Ribbon, Meritorious Masts and the Presidential Unit Citation. His unit was an important part of the support and infrastructure that allowed the swift movement through Iraq. Steven arrived in Kuwait in early February and was one of the first units to arrive in Baghdad. His unit was written about in numerous periodicals during the war highlighting the company's movements, contributions, and ambushes that they encountered. The New Jersey Star Ledger highlighted Steven Fulop on several occasions as a result of his choice to leave the comforts of Wall Street to serve his country.
