LONG ISLAND — Hundreds of friends and family members gathered Sunday to mourn the death of Jennifer Rosoff, the 35-year-old ad executive who plunged 17 stories to her death on the Upper East Side last week, reports said.
Rosoff, who was taking a cigarette break on her apartment's balcony, fell to her death when the pre-WWII building's railing gave way.
Many of the Manhattan businesswoman's friends traveled to Long Island, where Rosoff was from, to mourn the high-acheiver's sudden death at Gutterman's funeral home, Newsday reported.
"This was a 35-year-old girl who died senselessly and tragically," said Ross Wallenstein, 35, a public relations executive had known Rosoff since attending Hebrew school together as young kids in Melville.
"The only good that can come of this is if something like it never happens to anyone else, if the city takes added precautions."
According to the city's Department of Buildings, two violations have already been issued against the building for the incident, and an investigation is ongoing.
