Crowley found numerous working opportunities as a part of the academic circle after completing her studies. She became a professor at Rutgers University and is also a teacher at the Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy. She became affiliated with the Department of Women and Gender Studies too, as well as joining the John J. Heldrich Center for Workforce Development at Rutgers as a senior faculty fellow.

Aside from her teaching work, she is also an established author. She has written several books over the course of her career including “Mothers Unite! Organizing for Workplace Flexibility and the Transformation of Family Life”. She also wrote “The Politics of Child Support in America” which talks about laws surrounding family. Her other book is “Defiant Dads: Father’s Rights Activists in America” which is about public policy and families as well. She also does a lot of research work as part of her academic work. She is known to also study the impact of divorce and individuals and families, and has written about the topic.

Sister – Monica Crowley

Jocelyn Elise’s sister is political commentator and lobbyist Monica Crowley, who is known for working as a Fox News contributor for most of her career. She is also the former online opinion editor of The Washington Times, and is a member of the Council of Foreign Relations. She was appointed as a deputy national security advisor for the National Security Council in 2016 by the Donald Trump administration. However, she would withdraw from her position just a month after being assigned, after it was revealed that she had plagiarized portions of her 2000 Ph.D. dissertation as well as her 2012 book “What the (Bleep) Just Happened”.

Marriage to Alan Colmes

Alan Colmes was a radio and television host, best known for his work with the Fox News Channel on which he served as a liberal political commentator.

He also ran his own blog, and wrote two books during his career.

Alan and Jocelyn Crowley married in 2003, and by all accounts had a happy marriage for 14 years until Colmes’ untimely death. They didn’t have children. Her husband suffered from lymphoma or blood cancer that affected the white blood cells, which eventually took its toll on Colmes in 2017, as he passed away at the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center at the age of 66. The couple were known to have been happily married and supported each other throughout their careers. According to reports, Alan tried to hide his illness from his wife as he did not want her to get upset or worried.
