In Memoriam: Jamie Kendall

November 13, 2015

We at AUCD are saddened by the significant loss of Jamie Kendall, Acting Administrator of the Administration on Independent Living at ACL/HHS, who died on Thursday, November 12th. Jamie was an outstanding colleague, an exceptional advocate, a devoted parent, and a generous and kind friend. Her thoughtfulness, insight, wisdom, and humor greatly contributed to the work of advancing disability rights across the country. She also improved the quality of life and interactions of everyone she encountered. Jamie will be hugely missed at the upcoming AUCD annual meeting as well as in the months and years to come. All of us at AUCD offer our support to her family and friends and will keep her in our thoughts as we work for the goals she so strongly believed in.
