In Memoriam: Jane C. Hurley

ACSM extends its deepest condolences to family and friends of Jane C. Hurley, Ph.D., who passed away unexpectedly on June 17, 2019 at age 36.

Jane was an ACSM member and served as a member of the American Fitness Index Advisory Board. A 2019 Ph.D. graduate in exercise and nutritional science from Arizona State University, Jane studied walkability around worksites and its relation to total, domain and environment-specific physical activity with her mentor Marc Adams, Ph.D. She presented her dissertation research at the 2019 ACSM Annual Meeting in Orlando. Jane’s professional life was devoted to making walking and cycling for recreation and transportation better, easier and safer.

Jane will be remembered for her passions including cycling to work, bringing people together, mentoring students and love of travel, music and soccer.
