Beker was an alumni of the University of Pennsylvania as well as a Co-Chair of the Chabad affiliated 2012 Steinhardt Jewish Heritage Programs New York Gala this year.
Authorities have found no evidence of a suicide note so far as the investigation continues.
The incident occurred at 55 West 26th Street at around 8:15 a.m Thursday.
"She fell 30 stories to a parapet, just outside the building's fifth-floor gym," Police reported to the New York Post.
Becker worked as a consultant for IBM while working in her personal time toward Jewish programs.
"She went to Jewish school and came to Chabad all the time," said a friend of Becker to The Algemeiner "She was honored at Lubavitch House at Penn as an alumnus as well, and was a very sweet, happy person."
Rabbi Menachem Schmidt, Executive Director of Lubavitch House at Penn and President of Chabad on Campus told The Algemeiner: "I saw her last week because she used to meet with students for our mentoring event in Manhattan. She always came to Shabbos dinners."
The Rabbi added that "she was the kind of person that everyone would want to be like."
According to the New York Daily News, Becker had a LinkedIn recommendation from a former supervisor who said she was "an articulate, intelligent, optimistic and dedicated consultant."
"We miss her very much and our hearts go out to the family," Rabbi Schmidt concluded.
