Jack M. Ciattarelli (born December 12, 1961)[1] is an American Republican Party politician who has served in the New Jersey General Assembly since December 2011, representing the 16th legislative district.

Ciattarelli graduated from Seton Hall University with a B.S. degree in accounting and an M.B.A. degree in finance. He is the owner and publisher of Galen Publishing, L.L.C., a medical publishing company.[1]

He served on the Raritan Borough Council from 1990 to 1995 and on the Somerset County Board of Chosen Freeholders from 2007 to 2011.

In 2011, Ciattarelli ran for the open General Assembly seat in the 16th legislative district, vacated by Denise Coyle, who chose not to run for re-election due to redistricting. On November 8, 2011, he and his running mate Peter J. Biondi defeated the Democratic candidates, Marie Corfield and Joe Camarota.[2] Biondi died two days after the election, and Ciattarelli was selected to fill out the remainder of his term. After stepping down from his freeholder position, he was sworn in on December 5, 2011. He was sworn into his full term on January 10, 2012.[3]

He currently resides in Hillsborough Township.[4]
