Soonae and Jason have been Park Slope residents since 1997, enjoying an active role in the community, and raising their three children: Jacob (27), a recent graduate of New York University with a Masters in Social Work, Silas (10) and Emily (7), both current students at Luria Academy of Brooklyn.

Soonae is an active commercial real estate operator and developer, together with her husband Jason. They own commercial real estate properties throughout the city, and have built office space for Children’s Aid Society and Urban Health Plan in the Bronx, including a variety of satellite clinics.

As a volunteer, Soonae is involved with and has held leadership positions with pristine institutions such as: Congregation Beth Elohim, Girls Leap of Boston and most importantly Luria Academy. She is also a proud and longtime supporter/patron of many of our city’s finest cultural organizations and nonprofits that support underprivileged children. In particular, Soonae’s passion for food and wine has led her to hold an officer’s position in both the Commanderie de Bordeaux and the Chaine des Rotisseurs, where she works closely with area Michelin star chefs, restaurateurs and sommeliers, organizing monthly events for both societies.
