Jane Jaffe Rudov, age 62, died on April 13, 2020 at her home in Regent Square, surrounded by her family. Born in Pittsburgh, PA, Jane is the daughter of Norman and Alice Jaffe of Squirrel Hill. She grew up in Butler, PA and attended Butler High School and then Mercersburg Academy, graduating in 1975. She went on to attend and graduate from Ohio Wesleyan University and later received a Master’s degree in International Management from the Thunderbird School of Global Management at Arizona State University (Thunderbird) in Phoenix, Arizona. Jane’s extensive career spanned many decades and continents, spending early years at Deloitte, and several years at UPMC in marketing and human resources. Later in her career, Jane was the Global Director of Marketing for the Oldham Division of Industrial Scientific Corporation (acquired by Tyco International) where she oversaw the company’s global marketing strategy in the Americas, Europe and Asia-Pacific.  Ultimately, she served as Director of Marketing & Business Development at CJL Engineering where she found tremendous support and friendship in the past year. In addition to her parents, Jane is survived by her sister Erica Miller (Stephen), brother David Jaffe (Freada), loving stepchildren, Daniel, Lindsey and Roxanne Rudov, nieces Emily, Jennifer and Alexandra Jaffe, and nephews Harley and Matthew Miller. Jane’s work afforded her many opportunities to travel the world, which was one of her great passions.  She immersed herself in cultures, stories, foods, and experiences. Jane always brought back a piece of the world to share with her friends and family. She will be remembered for her wonderful sense of humor and the incredible richness that she added to our lives.A private funeral service and interment will be held due to the CDC restrictions on social distancing. Contributions in memory of Jane can be made to Our Clubhouse (Smallman Street) in Pittsburgh, PA, or a charity of your choice.

I was incredibly fond of and admired Jane. She was beautiful, warm and kind, and so bright. I loved her outlook on life and her energy. The smile that seemed to be there whenever I was with her. We were not close friends but we had a bond over shared experiences in life. She will be missed as a valued member of our community. I hope that fond memories will sustain all of her family as you endure this unusually difficult time.
