I arrived at the Cal Academy in 2005, and Jean instantly became my friend and mentor. Knowing that I had no family in the Bay Area, she often invited me to share an Easter meal with her family. She was a true friend and colleague and I miss her deeply. Her love and dedication to science, her work, and her family and friends is an example for us all. May you Rest in Peace Jean.

I feel so lucky to have had four years with Jean at the Academy. She made me laugh, she taught me so much (about gems, minerals, and all sorts of unrelated life-things), and she left me in awe of her giant heart and fierce intellect. I'll miss her so much, and send all my warmth and wishes to her family and loved ones.

I am truly sorry for your loss and the sadness it brings. How wonderful to be able to do work that speaks to your heart and to be able to do that work in such an amazing environment is a huge bonus. I would like to share an encouraging thought - "But when this which is corruptible puts on incorruption and this which is mortal puts on immortality, then the saying that is written will take place: 'Death is swallowed up forever. Death, where is your victory? Death, where is your sting?'" -- 1 Corinthians 15:54, 55. Thank you and be well.

Jean was a great help to me as a volunteer at the Academy, and then, as a proctor for all of my chemistry exams. I'm very sad to hear of her death.
