I also just finished her book Icebound. So motivated . A great role model, and now to discover she is gone. I'm glad to see she was remarried and happy. A truly amazing woman. An inspiration. My condolences to the entire family.

I listened to Jerri's book "Ice Bound" on CD this past spring. Because it was actually her voice on the CD reading her own story, I felt a closeness with her. I then searched online to see if I could find recent info about her and found that her cancer had returned. Today I searched to see if I could find out how she was doing and discovered, sadly, that she had died back in June. What a courageous woman and an inspiration to all women. God be with you, Jerri. My deepest condolences to her husband, parents, brothers, close friends & children. If they haven't already, I truly hope that one day her children will realize just how special their mother really was.

Though I never had the opportunity to meet Dr. Nielsen in person, she became my hero after reading her book! I wrote to her via her publisher and she answered with a wonderful personal note, which I will always treasure. What a wonderful, caring and giving person. My condolences to her husband, parents and to her brothers Scott and Eric.

I went to high school with Jerri and always remember her as the smartest girl in our class. Until a few years ago, I never realized the person in the South Pole was that Jerri. I printed the article, filed it in my desk, and ran across it today, thought I would look up what she was doing and found the obituary online. I am so sorry to hear that she had passed away. She will always be in my memories as this thin, energetic girl with short, blonde hair:) I feel priviledged to have known her.

I just finished listening to Jerri's book Icebound on CD. I was so interested in her story that I researched online and just found out about her passing away. I cried for an hour.
Jerri - thank you for such inspiring words. I will never forget your courage.

I have just seen the film starring Susan Sarradon based on Dr Nielsen's Antartic experience and how her courage and the commitment of those present there wrote another chapter in the book of Human endevour in her battle with the harsh Antartic elements and the life threatening cancer.
They say true imortality is to be remembered long after you have passed on and for Dr Jerri Neilsen, I believe she has attained that status because of her dertermination and the help of her Family and Friends.

I have just read Dr Nielsen's book. What a wonderfdul inspiring woman. She had such wonderful freinds and family. My own daughter is very ill and bed bound, so for her it was also a very personal story. She was hearing a very strong women share her story.

Our love goes out to those who loved Doc. i hope at some stage she spent time with her children . Carol

Her passing is such a tradegy!
Her family have wonderful memories of her many journeys and ending battle!

Such a heartwarming story!

The God of Love has given us his promise at
Acts 24:15 which says
"There is going to be a resurrection of the righteous.

I heard her speak here in Minnesota back in 1999, what a warm human being she was and her humor was incredible. I will cherish the picture I have of Her and I.

I am truly saddened by her passing,but what a gift that she shared with us..how to live life to the fullest.

I hope her children know what a special mother they had.
