The Post, Daily News, Times and other outlets are catching up to a tragic Wednesday night incident. The death of Jennifer Rosoff as the result of a fall from the balcony of her 17th floor, East 57th Street apartment.
Rosoff had joined startup TripleLift after previously working at the New Yorker, Lucky magazine and Cosmopolitan. Condolences are pouring in via Twitter, where the 35-year-old Rosoff was recently active. From the Times article:
The death of Ms. Rosoff, described by a friend as “an A-player” in the competitive world of media advertising sales, immediately rippled across cellphones and in-boxes of distraught friends and colleagues.
“I was meeting someone for coffee today and the second they got off the elevator, they said: ‘I had the worst e-mail. The subject was Jenn Rosoff died,’” said a friend in the ad sales industry who requested anonymity because he did not want to be seen as inserting his name into a tragic situation. “I hate in situations like this when people want to bury saints, but she was a great person,” he said.
