NJ Powerball Jackpot Winners Claim Prize

Sometimes money is the best medicine. At least that’s what a New Jersey couple thinks after they bought a winning $70 million Powerball lottery jackpot ticket at a pharmacy in Monmouth County.

Joseph and Celeste Tamburello of Tinton Falls showed up Monday morning at New Jersey Lottery headquarters to claim their prize. They will get a $41.5 million lump sum payout for the cash value ticket, which they bought at the Little Silver Family Pharmacy.

The 53-year-old Joseph and 41-year-old Celeste say they plan to quit their jobs, trade in her 15-year-old Saturn for a Cadillac and travel the world for a while.

Celeste, who works for a food service company, plans to give her two weeks notice on Tuesday. Joseph, a self-employed computer consultant, plans to fire himself.
