My deepest condolences to John, Jackie and family. I have known Debbie since I was a grad student in Eric Cornell’s group in JILA beginning in the late 90’s and got to witness from afar the excitement as she and her group achieved their first ultracold fermion results. I was lucky to have had her as one of my PhD committee members. Every time I have met Debbie since, she has always been very kind and gracious to take the time to talk. Given her remarkable scientific accomplishments, how humble she was was a true lesson in humanity. A great scientist and wonderful person to have lost.
