"For a decade now it has been my pleasure and privilege to work on various projects with Jan. None of my colleagues over the years has been more resourceful, more imaginative, or more productive — not to mention more of a joy at collaboration — than Jan. From big challenges to modest ones, she has always come through, making friends of skeptics and allies of strangers and producing teamwork where individual efforts alone were insufficient……she’s outstanding.”

- Bill Moyers journalist/broadcaster, PBS
