So very sorry to hear that Jeannie, such an inspiration and brilliant scientist has passed away. Sending heartfelt sympathies.

Jeanne was one of the first professors I had when I returned to school at age 40. She encouraged me, she helped me and gave me confidence that I could do well in pursuing my degrees in zoology. She was an outstanding teacher and a wonderful friend. I was very happy to renew our friendship during the past few years when we saw each other frequently at musical programs. I will very much miss seeing her and talking with her. Nan Hampton, friend, Austin, TX.

Jeanne was a most exceptional person. She was a successful scientist at a time when science was not an easy path for women. As a preclinical advisor, she mentored thousands of undergraduates, shepherding them in a direction that she believed would be the most rewarding for them. She was a consummate teacher. She earnestly and diligently combed over her exams for possible errors, and listened intently to students' concerns. Above all, Jeanne was a judicial, fair, and conscientious soul. She had a passion for music; Jeanne and Joe were members of the symphony orchestra for years. They owned a grand piano. She loved her husband and cared for him unconditionally when he was afflicted with illness, remission, and then illness again. Some may not know that Jeanne had a sparkling wit and personality. But in addition to being brilliantly smart, she held a quiet appreciation for fashion and art. I think that was the musical side of her. I will miss Jeanne dearly. I wish I could have been there for her more these past years. The world has lost an inspiring human being-- some would say an angel, although Jeanne would laugh at that. I, for one, will miss Jeanne Lagowski for a very, very, long time. She was a kindred spirit who I am not ready to let go.

Jeanne was so humble and loved her students. I worked with Joe on "Project Teach", a video and written program to help Teaching Assistants learn to teach more effectively. They were both so kind and provided a lot of mentoring. I know she will be missed by many colleagues and students.
