  1. I was very sorry to learn of Jan’s passing. I first met her in Torrance on the telephone when she was working to save music in the K-12 program. Later I was teaching at Hamilton Adult School and I got to know her. She was an endearing, caring woman that I was fortunate to meet. My deepest sympathy to the family. Carol Weiner
