Jeff Becker called this evening to inform me that his wife Tess passed away today at the age of 50. Tess developed primary pulmanary hypertension last year - a rare disease which makes it hard to breath. Although she has been up and down for the past nine months, things got worse over the past week.

Jeff asks that all donations - in lieu of flowers - go to the foundation dedicated to curing the disease, and I will pass that information along when I get it. Also, the funeral is set for Saturday morning on Long Island - again, I will pass along details when I receive them.

I'm sure you will all join me in passing along our deepest condolances to Jeff and his family. Tess was a fixture at many of the rallies during Jeff's 23-year PRO Rally career, and she will be missed by all.
