Madison, Wis. (December 28, 2019) - The Edgewood College community is heartbroken by the loss of longtime faculty member and former Interim Dean Amy Gannon. Gannon and her daughter, Jocelyn, were among the people killed in a tragic helicopter crash in Hawaii on Thursday.

“Amy was such an energetic and positive presence on our campus for many years,” Mary Ellen Gevelinger, O.P., Interim President, said. “Her work empowering women with an entrepreneurial spirit and a passion for excellence both in and out of the classroom are her lasting legacy. Our prayers today are with her family and all who loved her.”

Gannon served on the faculty at Edgewood College for nearly ten years. She served as Interim Dean of the School of Business for two years.

“At Edgewood College, we remember the words of Meister Eckhart at difficult times like this,” Gevelinger added. “He wrote, ‘there is no pain or sorrow which comes to us that has not first passed through the Heart of God.’”
