Tragic End for WPU Alum

By: Alissa Lopez – Editor-in-Chief

A William Paterson alumnus of the College of Education died early Saturday morning after falling off an escalator inside the World Trade Center Oculus, according to news reports.

Jennifer Santos, 29, of Kearny, fell 30 feet while trying to retrieve a hat her twin sister, Jessica, had dropped at around 5:30 a.m. Santos was pronounced dead at Bellevue Hospital.

Santos was a teacher and a coach at the Bergen County Rowing Academy. “It’s just hard to even believe this,” fellow coach Clemens Reinke told CBS 2. “Just yesterday she was with us. Jenny was coaching our team.”
