Obituary for Erica M. Pincus

“If you’re going to live, leave a legacy. Make a mark on the world that can’t be erased.”-Maya Angelou


erica pincus

Erica was passionate about developing technology-enabled, data-driven, and user-centered solutions to society’s toughest challenges. She most recently worked as a product marketing manager, and public policy advisor at the Everyday Robot Product within X, the moonshot factory (formerly known as Google X), reimagining how to design and develop technology in socially responsible ways.

From 2015 to 2017, Erica served as a Policy Advisor and Special Assistant for the Obama White House Office of Social Innovation and Civic Participation, where she supported the development of evidence-based policy solutions to measurably advance ladders to economic opportunity, equity, and justice.  Prior to that, she was a Strategy & Operations Consultant with Deloitte.

Known for her commitment to making a difference in the lives of others, her strength, kindness, and her passions for dance, travel, government, and social innovation, Erica was much cherished by her family and friends, and will be deeply missed.

There will be a Celebration to honor and remember Erica’s remarkable life and legacy on Saturday, July 10, 2021, Noon, at The LIFE Lutheran Church, 1 Old Westbury Road, Old Westbury, NY 11568. It will also be live streamed at:  https://www.thelifeny.org/

The family of Erica Pincus is touched by the outpouring of love and support from her friends and family. If you wish to send messages of condolence and support, please add them to the tribute wall here:  https://weigandbrothers.com/tribute/details/2245/Erica-Pincus/obituary.html#tribute-start
