Married Manhattan financial analyst is accused of sexually harassing nannies
A married Upper West Side financial analyst has been accused of flippantly asking for oral sex during an interview with a nanny for his one-year-old daughter.
The 27-year-old nanny who asked to go by Dawan told the New York Post that her March 8 meeting with Jason Kuperman, 43, at his West 58th Street apartment left her feeling frightened and violated.
Dawan told the outlet that she was alone with the 43-year-old when he took her on a tour of his lavish home – which sold for $297,000 in 2013 – and when they reached the bathroom allegedly made the raunchy request.
She claims that while in there Kuperman showed her a cushion and said it would be good for performing oral sex and allegedly asked: ‘Do I like blow job? Have I ever done that or not?’

The babysitter didn’t answer the alleged proposition but was shocked when Kuperman again made the salacious request.
‘You don’t do the blow job?’ she claims he said.
‘[He then] asked me ‘will I do it or not?’ I said ‘No, I don’t do it.’
A terrified Dawan then began secretly recording the interaction with Kuperman allegedly providing the recording to the New York Post.
On the damning recording its claimed that she demanded to know why he’d asked her such an inappropriate question to which he responded: ‘It’s like cleaning closet, doing laundry … You don’t have to. I was just [asking] a question. You don’t have to.’
Dawan is reportedly heard struggling to unlock the apartment door and when she finally escaped is said to have reported the incident to police.
A complaint about a woman being asked for sex during a job interviews at Kuperman’s address was confirmed by the NYPD.
In the wake of the violating incident several women who read a warning about Kuperman on Facebook came forward with their own experiences having worked with the 43-year-old.
‘I am part of a Brazilian group for babysitting gigs in the city and 3 girls said the same thing. They were scared to say something or go to the police because of immigration status,’ one wrote.
In another instance, a woman from Brazil said she’d exchanged messages with Kuperman about a possible job when he told her she was ‘too beautiful and wouldn’t be able to control himself.’
Kuperman, a member of at least one of the Facebook groups where the allegations were posted, has since deleted his social media accounts.
A 22-year-old Manhattan resident who spoke anonymously to the New York Post said that she’d worked for the family for about a month and was also the subject of lude suggestive commentary.
She claims that he’d said she was ‘too hot to be a nanny.’
‘On my last day, the dad grabbed my ass in front of the mom. That was my final straw,’ she claimed.
She said she quit the job by text the next day, but Kuperman kept trying to get in touch with her.
‘I’m totally happy for you that you found a better job. No hard feelings at all … No need to ghost or block. I’m happy for you. I’d love to stay on good terms,’ he allegedly wrote Oct. 7.
Sara Freizer Kuperman has vehemently denied the allegations and said to the outlet: ‘All I can say is that none of this is true.’
‘These allegations are false. Jason is a loving husband and a fantastic father.’
A 21-year-old from Manhattan, said she exchanged messages with Kuperman about a babysitting job and asked to meet him in a public space for an interview rather than this home, as he’d requested.
‘It sounds like you are scared, and immature so let’s just forget it,’ he is said to have responded, according to a text seen by The New York Post.
The woman claimed: ‘I take precautions like this because I’m no match for a grown man once I go behind that closed door.
‘I immediately got such a bad feeling and did not go through with the position despite my desperation and rent to pay.’
The Kuperman’s have denied their allegations calling them ‘completely and categorically false’
Kuperman denied their allegations calling them ‘completely and categorically false’ to the New York Post.
‘Some are from people I never even met. Others are from people who texted me after their interview saying how nice it was to meet and hope to work with me soon,’ he said in a statement to the outlet.
‘I feel terrible if I unintentionally made anyone feel uncomfortable by a misunderstood comment or bad attempt at humor.
‘As a father to a daughter myself I fully support equality and our shared social responsibilities. Although these allegations are untrue, I will take this as an opportunity for reflection on how I can pursue a more active role in working to make our society better for my daughter’s future.’
