Jackie Pardee

Jackie Pardee enters her first season with Columbia lacrosse after being named an assistant coach for the program on Feb. 1, 2020.

A 2018 NCAA Division II national champion at Le Moyne College, Pardee joins the Lions as an assistant coach after spending the 2019 season as a graduate assistant coach for the Dolphins.

Pardee will work primarily with Columbia's offensive unit, as well as orchestrating community service and social media efforts.

"I am excited to have Jackie join our staff this spring," said Cofrin. "Jackie brings a wealth of knowledge to Columbia from her playing and coaching career at Le Moyne College. She has an amazing work ethic and continues to be a student of the game. I'm excited for our team to get to know Jackie and thrive from her knowledge of the game."

As a graduate assistant coach at Le Moyne in 2019, Pardee helped lead her alma mater to its third-straight Northeast-10 regular season title, compiling a 20-2 overall record including a perfect 13-0 mark in conference games and reaching the second round of the NCAA Tournament. Pardee also helped coach four Dolphins to IWLCA All-America honors.

A four-year letterwinner and two-time captain as an attacker at Le Moyne, Pardee helped lead the program to its first-ever national championship as a senior in 2018 while reaching the Final Four all four years. In 2017, Pardee was named an All-NE-10 honoree and IWLCA All-Region selection after recording a career-best 35 goals.

A native of Camillus, New York, Pardee also has experience as a youth travel coach, having spent the 2018-19 season coaching with Orange Crush.

A 2018 graduate of Le Moyne College, Pardee holds a bachelor's degree in psychology.
