A Word from Susan Heckler's Colleagues
Dr. Cristel Russell of American University, noted that Dr. Heckler’s "skills were priceless for researchers in training. Her papers, and her advice in person, were always 'crisp' and easy to follow. As a doctoral student under her guidance at Arizona, I greatly benefited from having Susan as a research mentor."
Dr. Joan Lindsey-Mullikin, Cal-Poly San Luis Obispo, remembers "Susan was a great mentor and friend to her students…. She generously passed on these skills to her students…. She was giving without looking for anything in exchange. She will be missed. The students that had Susan as an advisor and committee member were very fortunate indeed."
John Sailors, associate professor of Marketing at UST sums it up well: "More than a passionate teacher and brilliant researcher, Susan was the most gentle of souls and generous to a fault. I am richer for having known and worked with her. Her time with us was too short and she will be missed every bit as much as she was loved."
