Jennifer Nellany

Jennifer graduated with an undergraduate degree in Accounting from the University of Delaware, followed by a J.D. from the Rutgers University School of Law and an LLM in Taxation from New York University. She began her career as a financial analyst while working full-time and attending law school in the evenings. Upon graduating from law school, she began her career as an attorney, and she has worked in private practice as well as in-house. She is currently the in-house counsel for a real estate development company. She first came to know about the Sarcoma Alliance in its initial iteration as a listserv when her then-boyfriend, Michael Pedrick, was diagnosed with synovial cell sarcoma at age 29. After treatment, he went into remission and they were married right before his five-year cancer-free anniversary. Sadly, at his five-year checkup he discovered his cancer had returned and he lost his battle to sarcoma in 2006. Each year since his death, Jennifer, along with Michael’s friends and family honor his memory with a the Putts for Ped golf outing. All proceeds from the outing have been donated to the Sarcoma Alliance. She is grateful for the knowledge and support she gained through the Sarcoma Alliance and she is honored to serve on their Board as President.  In her free time, Jennifer enjoys traveling to new places around the world and spending time with her friends and family, especially her husband and her daughter.
