NCSTL Says Goodbye to Dear Friend Susan Zucker

Susan ZuckerThe National Clearinghouse for Science, Technology and the Law mourns the loss of our dear friend and colleague Susan Zucker, who passed away on November 27 after a long illness. Susan joined NCSTL in 2005 as the Director of Technology & Distance Education. For over a decade, we had the pleasure of working with her. Many of NCSTL's friends and patrons were touched by Susan's glowing personality, uplifting spirit, and warm and giving heart. Our lives and the world are much bleaker and emptier without her.

A prolific educator, writer, editor, scholar, speaker, web designer, grant writer, and consultant, Susan was in many ways the essence of NCSTL. She was a tireless worker and advocate for our organization, its staff, and its constituents. Her professionalism was second to none, and was matched only by her huge heart and good humor.

Susan was not only a wonderful and essential part of NCSTL, but also a wonderful wife to Alan, mother to Cassandra and Jordan, grandmother to Gus and Sam, and a close, personal friend to all of us at NCSTL. We will always treasure our time laughing with her, working alongside her, and learning from her. We offer our deepest condolences to her family and other friends, and we will never forget this beautiful soul.
