Jenny's many friends were shocked and saddened to learn of her untimely passing. It seemed to us a fitting tribute to her memory would be to establish a fund to purchase a suitably inscribed tuba and/or other musical instrument(s) for a high school in the Atlanta area, enabling a new generation to share in her love of music . We're in the process of identifying a worthy institution and hope to have the funds raised by the fall of 2020. Ed Zotti, editor of the Straight Dope and Jenny's boss for many years, will oversee fundraising and handle the necessary details. We hope all who knew and loved Jenny will take the opportunity to give whatever they can.
Rest in peace, TubaDiva, and may your memory always play on.
