South Mountain School is grieving the sudden loss today of teacher Jennifer Feinberg.

Few details are available, but she passed away earlier today, according to her former husband, Jeff. "She will be sorely missed, she was a beautiful ray of light," he told

Her Linkedin page indicates she was at South Mountain School since 2011.

She leaves behind three children and many grateful students. We will provide memorial information as it is available.

Principal Alyna Jacobs sent this note to parents today:

Dear South Mountain Families,

It is with tremendous sadness that I share with you the news 
that 4th grade teacher Jennifer Feinberg passed away this 

Ms. Feinberg was a beloved member of our school community. 
She was an incredibly positive, open, and warm individual –
the kind of teacher who inspired kids to love to come to school 
each day. We will miss her as a friend and a colleague. 
Our hearts are broken.

Whether you discuss this with your children or not, they are 
likely to hear about it from other students on the bus, 
walk to school, or playground. We therefore suggest that you 
consider talking about this with your children, in a way that 
feels comfortable for you, before they return to school on 

The following link provides guidance for helping children deal 
with grief and news of death:

The South Mountain administrative team, school social 
workers, and teachers will actively support students as they 
process the passing of this beloved teacher.  

We will have additional school social workers on-site on 
Wednesday, and available as needed in the coming days. 

If your child shows signs of stress or needs support processing 
grief, please notify his or her teacher or a member of the 
administrative team. 

We will be offering additional support to the students in 
Ms. Feinberg’s classes, as well.

We extend our deepest sympathy to Ms. Feinberg’s family and 
to all of the students and families whose lives she has touched.

Alyna Jacobs, Principal
