Jill was a PAC-10 winning coxswain on the rowing team at UC Berkeley, diagnosed with Stage IV non-smokers lung cancer as a junior in college, battled couragously for a year, and lost her battle to lung cancer in June 2010. During her battle Jill continued to row for the UC Berkeley Crew team while at the same time undergoing several rounds of chemotherapy and radiation. She also became a huge advocate for lung cancer awareness and organized the first Jog for Jill event in Berkeley, CA.
