Joni Cohen

Chief Operating Officer

There is no one at Sid Jacobson JCC that has grown with the agency quite like our Chief Operating Officer Joni Cohen. Joni started her career at the JCC over 40 years ago as an Early Childhood teacher. As the agency grew larger, so did Joni’s role; she continuously advanced, being promoted from the Director of Early Childhood to an Associate Executive Director and was most recently named Chief Operating Officer in 2012.

In her current role as COO, Joni provides support for all agency programming and imparts direct leadership to the entire SJJCC staff. She manages the implementation of major projects to achieve the goals of the agency, working intimately with departments like Development to ensure the success of our Capital Campaign and special events. Her latest accomplishment, the launch of the Irene and Ronald Cohen Center for Parent Engagement + Education, has allowed Joni to guide staff based on her own experience in the field. Currently, Joni is overseeing SJJCC’s expansion to a third campus at 200 Forest Drive and the planning process for upgrades at Bernice Jacobson Day School & Camp and our main campus at 300 Forest Drive.

There is not an inch of the JCC, its programs, staff, members, and the greater community, that Joni has not impacted throughout her years here. Her enthusiasm and passion for the agency can be seen and felt in all that she does.
