Statement Regarding the Death of Former Women’s Refugee Commission Staff Member Jennifer Schlecht

“We are devastated and horrified by this unimaginable news. Jenn was family to the Women’s Refugee Commission both during her seven years with us and after her time here.

“She brought joy and light to all who knew her and was an unyielding champion for the rights of displaced women everywhere. Most of all, she was a phenomenal mother who loved her daughter with all she had. Our hearts are broken today and our prayers are with Jenn and her family,” Sarah Costa, executive director of the Women’s Refugee Commission.
