Jonathan Matos ’08 and Katherine Freed Matos, Esq. ’08: Supporting Stevens from the West Coast
Stevens graduates Katherine Freed Matos, Esq. ’08 and Jonathan Matos ’08 may live on the West Coast now, but their hearts remain dedicated to their alma mater in New Jersey.
As students, Katherine was a member of Alpha Phi Omega and played soccer and field hockey; Jonathan was a Phi Sigma Kappa brother, active in the Student Government Association.
Both soon transformed their Stevens educations into career success. Katherine obtained a law degree and is now a senior counsel for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Office of Inspector General, Administrative and Civil Remedies Branch. Jonathan is senior manager, Supply Chain in Advanced Development Programs, for Blue Origin, a firm developing reusable space launch vehicles.
Despite balancing their careers and family — they married in 2010 and now have two sons — the couple remain involved with Stevens. Katherine has served on the university's Board of Trustees. Jonathan, a recipient of the Harold R. Fee 1920 Alumni Achievement Award, remains active on his class reunion committee.
As Katherine puts it, “Continuing to be active in the Stevens community is a gift, professionally and personally. It allows me to demonstrate my support for this great community. My peers in the Stevens alumni community are among the best, brightest and most successful.”
“By staying involved with Stevens, we build the network we established during our studies,” he says. “Maintaining a connection to Stevens is central to supporting the investments of time we made while studying at Stevens.”
