UPDATE: Tributes have poured in today for a Secaucus limousine company owner from Englewood Cliffs who was killed last night in a crash on the New Jersey Turnpike.
Mohammed Aboushaca, 52, owner of Access Limo and Cab Service, was behind the wheel of a Toyota Camry that struck the back of a tractor-trailer in the northbound lanes on the Turnpike’s eastern spur in Secaucus just before 10 p.m., according to New Jersey State Police.
“Mighty Mo,” as some called him, was “all about his kids,” one friend said. Others called him “a gentle giant,” “a good man,” “a family man.”
“There was seriously no one like my father — who literally gave all his sweat, time, and blood for his family,” his daughter, Jamila Aboushaca, wrote on her Facebook page today.
“For the few that actually knew him, they will remember his BIG heart,” she added. “There wasn’t a day that I wouldn’t at least talk/text him.”
An EMT, he was past captain of the former Englewood Cliffs Ambulance Corps.
Aboushaca also loved pets and cooking and often worked major events. He took the photo above outside MetLife Stadium on Sunday night while working Super Bowl XLVIII.
