    I was blessed to enjoy many conversations with Tess at the Comp. I enjoyed her spirit and student-centered focus. Many students benefited from Tess's concern for their well-being, and fellow staff enjoyed more than one laugh, good story or performance in an assembly. All the best to family and friends.

    So sad to hear of Tess's passing. She was always so kind when I visited her and Gerald in earlier years. She is now with the love of her life.
