I had the privilege of working with Jody in the Publications area at NACE International. We worked together at many conferences and meetings since she joined NACE and I always enjoyed seeing her and the warm heartfelt welcome that she offered whenever we met. We joked often that vacation was "a time when we might look at email but we didn't have to" and that was what defined vacation.

Jody was a wonderful person and will be dearly missed by all of her friends at NACE and the Publications Activities Committee members in particular.

I worked with Jody for several years at NACE International. She was an amazing boss and really made a difference in the organization. She was great to work with and will be missed so much at NACE.

Jody was my manager for many years and I learned a lot from her. I also took classes at BC3 with her. I would also consider Jody a friend. This is very sad. Way too young. Rest In Peace Jody!

I've known Jody since we were school mates at Ivy School of Art in Pittsburgh. We had some fun times back then in school & exploring the city around it. We've kept in touch over the years getting together in CA when she was out here on business & I always tried to see her when I was back visiting in Pittsburgh so we could catch up on each others lives. Jody worked very hard & was successful, no matter what job she held. I enjoyed her company immensely as a friend & will greatly miss her. She is gone too soon.
