A Special Message on Ashley Zautcke

As many of you have already heard, Ashley Zautcke was involved in a serious car crash last week, and has been fighting for her life in the hospital since.  Her injuries were severe enough that doctors chose to keep her in an induced coma.

Our community of structural engineers is small, and many of you have been blessed with the opportunity to meet and be inspired by Ashley.  Her positive attitude, intensity, talent and dedication have made her a champion for us all.  Please join me in lifting her up and sending positive thoughts and/or prayers for her healing. 

Although her family and friends hold out hope for a swift recovery, her injuries are serious; there is a very real possibility that her rehabilitation will be extensive and expensive.  Ashley’s family has set up a GoFundMe page to help with the recovery.  Please visit, contribute, and distribute this however you can:

I don’t know what else to say; we just hope to hear good news soon.
