First date ends badly for former Cosmopolitan mag editor who plunged 17 floors to her death while taking a cigarette break

Woman falls 17 floors

A former editor for Cosmopolitan magazine fell to her death from her balcony while taking a cigarette break early this morning, the NY Post reports.

35-year-old Jennifer Rosoff was on her first date with a male friend when they went on the balcony of her 57th Street high rise apartment to share a cigarette. The balcony railing apparently gave way as she leaned against it, sending Rosoff plunging 17 floors to her death. The incident happened around 12:30 a.m. Thursday.

Police found Rosoff’s body atop construction scaffolding in the street below her apartment. Neighbor Sara Shubert told the NY Post she heard Rosoff’s body land.

“I heard the thud last night. It was as loud as a car crash. It sounded like a 200 lb punch,” said Shubert, an eight-year resident of the luxury building.

“There was a man who was hysterical and crying by the elevators,” said another neighbor who lives on the 14th Floor. “He told me that he and Jennifer were on their first date. They had just gotten back and she was showing him her apartment.”

“Then he said they stepped out onto the balcony and had a drink. She was leaning on the balcony then the railing gave way and just snapped. It’s really sad.”

Residents told the NY Post the building had been taken over by a new real estate management company. The company, Stonehenge, was in the process of making repairs to the old structure.

“They inherited a very old building. Old pipes and things,” Shubert said. “They are the type of people who are pretty meticulous. So for the railing to just break is very surprising.”

    I guess I look at too many crime shows because the first thing I thought was…he pushed her. They came to her apartment, he tried to or suceeded at raping her, then he pushed her…it never crossed my mind that she actually fell.

    The thing about those services though is that most of them send out the same exact resumé to different companies. In my opinion, you should never send out the same resumé; Customize it for each job position.

    … having to interview people … if your resumé looks too "general", I toss it.

    Just my opinion and feedback though

    You could hear him hollering at different intervals of the day, “I wasn’t properly trained”.

    I hated his muskrat mouf azz too! He was real messy. :rolleyes:
