Before his election to the House of Representatives, Pascrell served in the New Jersey General Assembly for four terms beginning in 1988, and was elected to two terms as mayor of Paterson. The grandson of Italian immigrants, Pascrell was born in Paterson, New Jersey, the son of Roffie J. (née Loffredo) and William James Pascrell (originally Pascrelli).

Pascrell attended Fordham University in New York City and earned a bachelor's degree in journalism and a master's degree in philosophy.

He was appointed to the Paterson Board of Education, and served as president of the board. He also served on Passaic County Community College's board of trustees. Pascrell first ran for elected office in 1987, when he ran for the New Jersey General Assembly seat being vacated by the retiring Vincent O. Pellecchia. He and incumbent Assemblyman John Girgenti retained the District 35 seats for the Democrats by defeating Republican nominees Martin Barnes, a Paterson city councilman, and Robert Angele, who worked in the city housing administration. Pascrell received 34% of the vote, enough to earn him the seat. Pascrell and Girgenti were reelected in 1989 over Republicans Joaquin Calcines, Jr.
