It was the last Friday of April, the second day in her new home on Long Island, and as far as she knew, the only people who had her new address were friends and relatives who live out of town. Her father, Ron Shapiro, was visiting for the weekend, and he agreed to investigate. He returned to the kitchen with a sheepish smile. "That was a 16-year-old neighbor," he said. "He asked if I was the new Jets coach." Mangini's laugh filled the room. Right house, wrong man. Eric Mangini, Julie's husband, was holed up in his office at the Jets' practice facility preparing for his first N.F.L. draft the next day. Was it the beginning of the end of the Manginis' low-key life? "I don't worry about that," Julie Mangini said. "Maybe I'm naΓΒ―ve." Mangini, 36, does not appear to become anxious about much. She is sufficiently self-possessed to gladly suffer the people who identify her in relation to the men in her life, as if she cannot stand on her own merit. When she is referred to in public, it is usually as the daughter of Shapiro, the renowned player agent; as the younger sister of Mark Shapiro, the Cleveland Indians' general manager; and as the wife of the new Jets coach. "I'm happy to be referred to that way," she said, "just because those three men represent everything I believe in." By that she says she means they are kind, they give back to their communities, they make family a priority. Julie Mangini energizes any conversation or room she enters, and she must also have been blessed with the serene gene. She pulled off a move from New England to New York in January with a 2-year-old son in tow while seven months pregnant. Joshua Schott, the president of Update Legal, where she has worked for the past 10 years, described her as "one of the most even-keeled people I know." ...... .
