Colleague Recalls the Very Generous Ways of Jennifer Rosoff

One of the warmest public tributes paid so far to Jennifer Rosoff in the aftermath of her tragic death in midtown Manhattan comes from Danny Bellish. Here’s what the 26-year-old sales manager for Saveur magazine told Sheila Anne Feeney of, explaining that Rosoff took him under her wing back in 2009 when she was an account manager for Cosmopolitan:

She literally drew him a map of everything he needed to learn in digital advertising to help him succeed, he recalled. “I still have it,” he said of the instructions she drew for him on the back of a menu.

Also, “she got my girlfriend an internship,” and even arranged a trunk show at Hearst to help his mother’s jewelry business, Bellish said. “I turned to Jennifer at every single step of my career,” said Bellish, adding “she was always ahead of the curve,” and the first to spot industry trends.

RIP: Jennifer Rosoff

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.

Murray Weiss Leaves New York Post To Pursue Online Reporting

After making his bones by blowing the lid off a planned mob hit on Rudy Giuliani and exposing Eliot Spitzer‘s sexual exploits,  investigative reporter Murray Weiss has said goodbye to the New York Post.  Brandweek’s Robert Kiara reported that Weiss has joined Manhattan-focused digital news site and already published his first story for his new employer.

DNAinfo’s managing editor Leela de Kretser did not understate the value of adding Weiss’s experience to the team:

“[We are] thrilled to have one of the city’s best crime writers doing what he does best. Murray deepens our bench of professional journalists and our reporting on neighborhood news that matters to New Yorkers.”

Weiss will leave some big shoes to fill at the Post, a newspaper that is known for their bold crime stories and NYPD Daily Blotter.
