Jennifer Capozzoli began working at COPE in December 2023. Jen is currently an administrator at New York University and previously served in administrative roles at Riverdale Country School and the University of Pennsylvania. Throughout her career in education, she has advised students, developed and facilitated workshops and programs, managed civic engagement initiatives, and built relationships with internal and external stakeholders, including alumni and donors.

Jen earned a Master of Science in Nonprofit Leadership from University of Pennsylvania’s School of Social Policy and Practice, in addition to completing a Certificate in Applied Positive Psychology from Penn. She graduated from St. John’s University’s Tobin College of Business and earned a Bachelor of Science in Management with a minor in Social Justice, Cum Laude with Honors. Jen is a proud St. John’s alumnus and serves as the Recruiting Chair for the St. John’s Graduates of the Last Decade Executive Board. She is also actively involved in the Ozanam Scholars Program, where she collaborates with leadership, current students, and fellow alumni.

Jen grew up in a close-knit family on Long Island with her sister and two loving parents. In June 2022, Jen’s father passed away at the age of 64 after a tragic accident. In search of ways to connect with fellow bereaved families and dedicate time in honor of her dad, she found COPE and jumped at the opportunity to become part of the team. Jen is committed to working with fellow grieving individuals and families, helping them tell their stories and navigate their own journeys after the shattering passing of a loved one.

Jen and her fiancé, Justin, enjoy exercising, exploring neighborhoods and towns, trying new restaurants and breweries, and spending time with family and friends. In 2024, they are looking forward to fostering and adopting a dog.
