Jelena Kovacevic

Jelena Kova?evi?, age 48, passed away on Saturday, February 3, 2024 after a long battle with multiple sclerosis at Morristown Post Acute Rehabilitation Center in Morristown, NJ.

Born on November 17,1975 in Subotica, Serbia (formerly Yugoslavia) she was the daughter of Ernest and Vukosava Kova?evi? (Djordjevi?).  Her father and mother were born in Subotica and Šugrin, Serbia respectively.

She was a very precocious child and showed many talents at an early age,  ranging from painting, crafts, and cooking to academics and sports. She enjoyed skiing throughout most of her life, played volleyball and tennis in high school and loved riding her motorcycle.

Mathematics was Jelena’s strong suit. She scored perfectly on the math portion of the SAT’s, and her acumen ultimately led to a successful career in information technology.

Jelena had a strong, outgoing personality. With a warm smile and an easy laugh, she easily made friends wherever she found herself. Her greatest quality was being a giver. Whether it was a souvenir from a trip or some homemade cupcakes, nothing gave her more pleasure than providing for others.

Jelena was predeceased by her father Ernest. She is survived by her loving mother Vukosava, her beloved son Carl, her brother Djordje and wife Kelli, her niece and nephew Maya and Neven and her husband Brian Powers.
