    The winner of a $20 million New Jersey Lottery Pick-6 jackpot plans to keep it all in the family and share the winnings with 19 relatives.

    The Endreson family packed the Beachwood Community Center Thursday afternoon.

    A lottery spokeswoman says the family has 17 brothers and sisters who range in age from 53 to 76. The prize will also be shared with three children of a brother who died a few years ago.

    The family has decided to take a lump sum payment of $14 million, which is worth about $10 million after taxes.

    Sixty-nine-year-old John Endreson says he lost his home during Superstorm Sandy and used up his savings to rebuild it.
