LAA President Jason Goldstein Honored as a Loyal Son of Rutgers

The Rutgers Alumni Association (RAA) in 2014 honored 10 alumni as Loyal Sons and Loyal Daughters, including Jason E. Goldstein, LC'02, RBS'05 (pictured).

Goldstein was the president of the Livingston Alumni Association (LAA) from 2012 to 2015, and has been a member of the LAA board since 2002 (including serving as second vice president from 2003 to 2006 and first vice president from 2006 to 2012). As one of the first board members of the Rutgers University Alumni Association, Goldstein advocated for programming and marketing that embraced all of Rutgers’ alumni constituents.

Goldstein's service to Rutgers includes:

  • Founder and chairman of the Livingston Theater Company Alumni Association; as an undergraduate founded the Livingston Theatre Company
  • Many service and community events such as theater night and speed networking.
  • Driving force behind LAA’s public relations and marketing activities.

Goldstein has been a key partner with the RAA, particularly in producing a video for the 2013 Loyal Sons and Daughters dinner, and portraying Colonel Henry Rutgers at the Loyal Sons and Daughters' 50th anniversary event.

Goldstein previously has been honored with the RAA's Class of 1931 Award in 2013, and Rutgers University Alumni Federation's Meritorious Service Award in 2007.

Each year since 1958, RAA has honored an illustrious cadre of Loyal Sons and Daughters (now numbering almost 800, including eight Livingston College alumni).
