My condolences to her family, friends, and colleagues. As a former JILA colleague, I must say that Debbie was as inspirational person to work alongside with, and I admired her and her work greatly. She had such good, clear, and deep level relationships with all the people she worked around with. I'm glad she (as well as all the JILA Fellows) gave me chance and time to work there with her and be a part of that special JILA family. She has been an inspirational person in my early work and career path ... and I only wish to come across and work with more wonderful and brilliant people like herself who break so many barriers.
