Early and personal life
A native and resident of New Rochelle, New York, Rosen is Jewish. His mother, Gay, is from England. He was named for his grandfather, who served aboard HMS Sussex for the Royal Navy during World War II. He graduated from New Rochelle High School in 2002, after playing football for the school team for one season.
Rosen has been involved with the New York State Civil Air Patrol, having earned a Cadet Senior Master Sergeant rank in 2001. He is also a part-time music entrepreneur. Rosen is a dual US-British citizen.
Rosen did not qualify for the 2014 Winter Olympics; consequently luge did not then receive UK Sport funding for the 2018 Olympic cycle. Rosen qualified for the 2018 Winter Olympics, along with Rupert Staudinger, but with inferior quality equipment he only managed to finish 22nd.
He had the best-ever result for a British Luge athlete when he finished in sixth place at the Viessman Luge World Cup in Calgary, Alberta, Canada during the 2008-09 World Cup Season. He returned to competing after a 2009 accident in which he dislocated his hip and suffered serious nerve damage.
