Jennifer Roop

  • Marketing & Communications Manager

Jennifer joined the Department of Housing team in May 2015, after nearly five years at DePaul. She enjoys drawing on her background in journalism and public relations to engage multiple audiences across print, web and social media for the department's communication efforts.

Jennifer came to DePaul’s Office of Advancement in 2010 to manage social media and write for alumni publications while earning her master’s degree in Public Relations and Advertising. Before joining DePaul, she earned a bachelor’s degree from Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism and worked in newspaper copy editing, textbook publishing and pharmaceutical advertising.

After working with alumni, Jennifer is happy to now be involved with serving students. In her spare time, she enjoys participating in the DePaul Women’s Network (after being 2016-17 president), cooking, watching college football and taking on freelance editing clients.​
