(New York, NY) – The Coalition of Parents in Esports (COPE) has announced that Justin M. Jacobson, Esq. has joined its Industry Advisory Board as its President in addition to acting as the organization’s legal counsel. Coalition of Parents in Esports (COPE) is a 501c3 nonprofit founded in 2020 by parents of professional esports players and gaming influencers to combat the outdated negative stigma of gaming. Having seen the positive effects of online gaming and streaming at building the confidence, community, and careers of their own children, the organization wanted more parents and legal guardians to understand that gaming could be an excellent use of interactive screen time. With positive parent involvement like any extracurricular activity, gaming can entertain, inspire, and build transferable business skills applicable to their modern connected world. COPE provides resources and scholarships to help them get there and Justin is proud to join this wonderful charity. He sums it up by stating “As a new parent, an industry professional and academic in the esports and professional gaming world, I’m happy to join COPE.”
