HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) — According to an announcement made by the Pennsylvania Office of Victim Advocate Friday afternoon, Jennifer Storm has announced her resignation as Acting Commonwealth Victim Advocate effective Jan. 29, 2021.
During her tenure, Storm received more than $2.6 million in federal grant funds to expand services, created Office of Victim Advocate satellite officers, and created the first Institutional Victim Assistance Coordinator role in the nation.
“I came into the role as Commonwealth Victim Advocate knowing the political realities of the position, and I did so with fidelity and determination,” said Storm. “I leave the office knowing that I have served crime victims and survivors – and the office – well and with uncompromising courage.”
Storm was appointed to the position by Governor Tom Corbett in 2013 and nominated for a second six-year term by Governor Tom Wolf in 2020, but the state Senate rejected her nomination.
