I'm so sorry to hear about Judy's passing. I was one of Judy's clients and worked with her on several research projects throughout the years. You should know she was one of the smartest people I've ever worked with. I have great memories of working with Judy in 2004 on a project that lasted about 18 months. In that time, we travelled together to Moscow. It was January and the weather was horrible, but we had great fun traveling through a bad snow storms and dealing with flight delays in strange places. We arrived at a meeting and had to give a joint presentation. We were both tired, but Judy performed like a pro and when asked some detailed questions, she was amazing. I though you'd like to know that. Please accept my condolences.

I worked with Judy for the last 3-4 years. I liked her from the first time we spoke - she was direct, no fuss or mess kind of person. Since that first conversation, I knew I like her, we clicked. We were very alike - the way our researcher minds worked, the way we would work to find solutions, go over options. When I had a challenging question or task in front of me, I would call Judy and we would think through it together. And we both enjoyed it immensely. She was my mentor - I learned so much from her. I could tell she enjoyed these moments when I would ask and she would explain. I could tell she was an avid learner herself, she would sincerely get excited when the research project was complicated, required learning new things, reading and thinking it through. We had the same sense of humor Sadly, I can''t remember specific funny things we would talk about and laugh, but I vividly remember her laugh - she was unstoppable. I work with a lot of different research partners, people in same positions as Judy Feinstein. But Judy is more than just another researcher. She is my friend. And for that I am extremely sad to see her leave Judy and I never met in person. We both hoped we will have a chance someday. I still believe we will. With most sincere condolences to Judy''s family and friends, Zivile Norvilaite-Petersen

Judy was a great mentor and a friend. I will certainly miss her, but will continue to look to her as an example of kindness, decency, and adventure. My life is richer for having known her, and it seems she had that effect on everyone. My deepest condolences to her family.

I had the privilege of working with Judy many years ago and I was fortunate to recently re-connected with her. I will always remember Judy for her tenacious spirit and endless dedication to provide the best service and friendship to her clients and friends. Judy always told me how much she learned from me but it was me who learned so much from her. I think above all else she taught me to respect everyone and especially those who are in need of a little compassion, encouragement, and friendship. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
