Neema Roshania Patel, editor of Next Generation Audience Development at The Washington Post, passed away on Oct. 24 at a hospital in Washington.
The cause of death was gastric cancer, said her husband, Akshar Patel.
Patel joined the Post as a digital editor in 2016. She then served as deputy editor and editor of “The Lily.” She was an associate news editor at WHYY in Philadelphia and a researcher/reporter at Kiplinger Washington Editors.
She interned at CNBC.
Phoebe Connelly, senior editor of Next Generation, wrote of Patel in an email:
“What stood out immediately was her desire to collaborate — to take what she had learned running The Lily and infuse it into every department, every article and every project.”
