The memorial was so beautiful. The comments by Betsey Pash so captured Jean's passion for public health. If it is possible to get a copy of Betsey's remarks, I would love to use them in my graduate class with proper attribution as an introduction to understanding the role of advocacy in public health.

Gandhi once said 'the best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others." Jean intuitively understood this as she lived her life in the service of others thru improving the health of the public at the federal, state and local levels. Jean's love for her family was always on loving display; she opened her home to those in need, and made lasting friendships with so many of us.

I lost a dear friend when Jean passed away. There isn't a day that goes by that I don't miss her.

Jean was my mentor and friend. I am indebted to all the many years we worked together. Her passion for what is right and her extraordinary leadership made a tremendous difference in the fight for the public's health, the prevention and control of chronic diseases and the prevention and control of HIV. Michigan has lost a true advocate but her legacy will live on in all the lives she touched.

Jean was one of a kind. She worked tirelessly for public health both at the state level and on behalf of local public health. She had a good sense of humor and stayed optimistic, even in rough times. I consider her a mentor in many ways. She is greatly missed and my condolences to Hector and the family. God bless you all and give you comfort.
