Proud Veteran, U.S. Marine Corp

WATERBURY – Christopher Nocera age 46 of Waterbury, passed away peacefully at home, surrounded by the love of his parents and family after a valiant battle with cancer.

Christopher was born on February 19, 1974 in Waterbury, the son of Janet and Francis Jalbert. He graduated from Kaynor Technical High School, served in The United States Marine Corps, and graduated from The Culinary Institue of America. Christopher channeled his creative energy further and became a hair stylist and owned his own salon.

Christopher had a passion for life and left an impact on everyone he met; how could he not, his smile was infectious. He was the first person to help someone in need and would quickly respond with, “I know someone”. He was an avid golf player, enjoyed the game of tennis, and he loved to root for the New York Yankees and the Miami Dolphins. He dabbled in photography, worked for the Big Green Pizza truck, and loved going to the casino; you could find him at the Blackjack table. He was a Fourth Degree Knight for the Knights of Columbus, Sheriden Council..

Left to honor Christopher’s legacy and memories besides his parents are, his grandmother, Irene Albert, his siblings; Joseph R. Nocera IV, Dawn Cronin and her husband Frank, Linda Eiler and her husband Karl, and Dan Jalbert. He also leaves behind his daughters, Mia and Ella Nocera, his aunts and uncles, his nieces and nephews, and close friends.

Funeral services for Mr. Nocera will be held at the convenience of his family. Casey’s Eastside Memorial Funeral Home and Cremation Services have been honored to assist the Nocera family during this difficult time. To honor Chris’ memory donations to Smilow Cancer Center PO Box 1849 New Haven CT 06508. , Memories endure only if you share them so you are encouraged to leave an on-line condolence, words of comfort or a personal memory with the Nocera family on Christopher’s tribute page at

To Jan and Fran and Family;
There are no words to adequately express our sadness for you and what it means for losing your Chris. Although we have not spent a great amount of time with him this year, the times we were able to visit with him always made us aware of how amazing he was and the strength he had despite such a devastating illness. That is surely a tribute not only to Chris but to you Jan and Fran! Your love and support allowed him to thrive and surpass all odds these past several years. When Chris would come with Fran to our place to go sailing, he joined right in and seemed to really enjoy the time he spent riding the ocean waves. So many wonderful memories. That is the meaning of life that Chris showed us all and how precious life is. He may be gone now but he is at peace with the Lord. Chris lives on in our hearts. And we will meet again. God Bless you all. Love Vin and Barb Jalbert

As long as we’ve known Chris, we’ve known him as such a gentle soul. We would see Chris at Sunday mass with his parents, Fran and Janet, first at Church of the Epiphany for many years and then at Mary Mother of the Church. Despite his hardships, he would always smile. We will miss that and we’ll pray for him as he takes his well-earned place in Heaven with God our Father. Our deepest sympathy goes out to Fran, Janet, and their family.

I haven't been able to think about anything else since I heard you were gone. Always with a smile on your face, I keep thinking about all the positivity you passed on to other people. In high school, I learned to not take life so seriously from you... you were always making people laugh, (even the Chefs) your laughter was contagious! In Culinary, I watched you always do your best and it inspired me to want to do my best too! In more recent years, I've still been learning from you. I've learned to make more time for those I care about. To not let life just pass by aimlessly, because family and friends are most important. Your family is proof to this, making sure that they did everything they could to help you enjoy life with the unfair hand you'd been dealt. ❤️Thank you for motivating our friends circle to spend more time together through the past few years... it's because of you we make it a point to get together, cherishing our friendships. It's unbearable to think that you are gone, you will be profoundly missed my friend💔
