Remembering Jenny Malin
Posted: October 29, 2013
Jennifer Malin, a second year graduate student in Social and Clinical Psychology, was killed in a car accident on October 26, when the car in which she was riding was hit from behind. Although her primary research interests dealt with trauma and narrative, Jenny was someone with a remarkably broad set of passions. She loved gardening and birding and making a difference in the world.
Jenny was born in Houston in 1986 and graduated from Clear Lake High School. She graduated from Harvard in 2009 specializing in folklore and documentary films. Her work with domestic abuse hotlines and a documentary film project eventually led her into psychology. She started graduate school in the Fall of 2012.
Jenny will be remembered for her energy and enthusiasm. She was central to several communities—her schools, her church, her singing group, her pets and her friends. Her parents, Jane and David Malin, and her boyfriend Michael Sullivan, ask that donations be made to the Jennifer J. Malin Endowment, which will help support graduate education in the Department of Psychology. Checks can be made out to The University of Texas with "Jennifer Malin Endowment" in the memo section.
