I met Dr. Voss when she and her family came through one if the public missions we did at the Challenger Learning Center of Arizona in its first year. I recognized her because I had a Janice Voss team when I was a counselor at Space Camp. We gave she and her family a tour of the center after the mission was over. Took photos with her. She sent us a really great "thank you" with autographed photos, stickers, patches, etc.

When I began my graduate internship at Johnson Space Center the following summer, I had access to every employee's email address, so I wrote to her after I worked up the nerve, to let her know that her visit had been one of the highlights of my time at CLCAZ, and I hope she remembered me. She wrote back within minutes and invited me out to lunch! I wish I could say it was more pleasant than it was, because I was a nervous, shy wreck; but she was gracious and kind, and when I placed my order, she asked if I would mind if we used my order to stamp her card toward a free loaf of bread, which she got. Haha! No unearned freebies even if one is five-time shuttle astronaut, I suppose.

In any event, she actually took the time to encourage me personally. She was so healthy and smart; a vegetarian and very fit. Her death to cancer shocks and saddens me.

Thank you, Dr. Voss for inspiring and encouraging many women to reach for their dreams. My thoughts go out to her family and NASA colleagues.

To the family and friends of Janice Voss,

Janice Voss was an inspiration to many and will always be remembered. Those who die God keeps in his memory because they are precious in his eyes - Psalm 116:15. I am so sorry for your loss.

In our halcyon days, we made our mark on STS-63. Goodbye, Janice. You'll be missed enormously by all of us.

Just like Christa Mcauliff, Janice inspired many teachers and students to "Reach for the Stars". The astronaut photo of
her first mission on the Endeavour hangs on the wall of my office. I was fortunate to meet her when she visited the CAN-DO teachers, who established the first student mission control room. She will be truly missed.

Janice, your mission ended much too soon. So many memories: the Air Rally in that much-abused Cessna 152, Richard Gere movies, the flight simulator for the Girl Scouts, theme parties, pep talks to finish the dissertation, dance classes, the launch party your first time up, you jumping up and down on the evening news .... I was blessed and inspired by you. If only we had both survived cancer! My prayers and condolences to your wonderful family, who shared you and always welcomed your friends.

Take comfort in knowing that now you have a special guardian angel to watch over you.
