Dear Colleagues,

It is with sadness that I write regarding the sudden recent death of our colleague Dr. Jeanette Thomas. To quote another colleague, Jeanette had much energy, sympathy, and intellectual, administrative, and personal strength. She will be greatly missed.

A brief announcement of Jeanette’s death is on the WIU web site: http://www.wiu.edu/news/newsrelease.php?release_id=15673 <http://www.wiu.edu/news/newsrelease.php?release_id=15673>

Aquatic Mammals journal will include a Tribute to Jeanette in our next issue (44.5, to be published online on September 15, 2018). 
The editorial team at Aquatic Mammals will coordinate with her colleagues at WIU and her family for a biographical tribute to Jeanette. Following this essay about her life, we would like to include tributes from any colleague who would like to share a memory about Jeanette, thoughts about their interactions (as student, colleague, friend) with her, and/or thought(s) about what Jeanette contributed to the field of marine mammal science. We will include your tribute with your name and affiliation (as you provide it). 

To be included in this Tribute to be published on September 15, the journal needs to receive your comments, thoughts, memory’s by August 21st. Tributes received after August 21st will be included in a supplemental file online that will be linked back to the published tribute. If possible, please keep your tributes to ~1000 words (longer tributes may be included in the online supplemental file). 

Please send your tributes to the journal by email <business at aquaticmammalsjournal.org>

We will celebrate Jeanette’s vibrant attitude toward life and her significant contributions to our field of study and also to our lives. My career is much better and more diverse for not only having known Jeanette but also for having had the opportunity to work with her.

Thank you.
Best
Kathleen
