Loved Ones Remember Southwest Airlines Victim Jennifer Riordan As Passionate, Vibrant, "Bedrock Of Our Family"

The country is still reeling from Tuesday's engine failure and tragedy on Southwest Airlines Flight 1380 from NYC to Dallas that claimed the life of Jennifer Riordan, a bank executive from Albuquerque, New Mexico. Riordan — who became the first person to die in a commercial air incident in the United States since 2009 — was [...] The country is still reeling from Tuesday's engine failure and tragedy on Southwest Airlines Flight 1380 from NYC to Dallas that claimed the life of Jennifer Riordan, a bank executive from Albuquerque, New Mexico. Riordan -- who became the first person to die in a commercial air incident in the United States since 2009 -- was nearly sucked out of the Southwest Airlines plane when the left engine apparently failed, exploded, and sent shrapnel piercing through the window by her seat. Related: Ivanka Trump & Jared Kushner Encounter Helicopter Engine Failure The Albuquerque native and mother of two was Vice President of Community Relations for Wells Fargo bank for nearly ten years, according to her LinkedIn account, but family, friends, and citizens in Albuquerque are remembering her for far more than her career. In a statement released to the media, her family recalled Jennifer's "vibrancy, passion, and love" while memorializing her after the tragedy (below): "Jennifer's vibrancy, passion and love infused our community and reached across our country. Her impact on everything and everyone she touched can never be fully measured. But foremost, she is the bedrock of our family. She and Mike wrote a love story unlike any other. Her beauty and love is evident through her children." "In her memory--please remember to always be kind, loving, caring, and sharing." Jennifer Riordan's family has released these photos and this statement. @kob4 #ABQ pic.twitter.com/JgTgdobfRw — Erica Zucco 🇺🇸 (@ericazucco) April 17, 2018 So, so sad... It's apparent how much of an impact she had on others around her, both in life and in business, because Tim Keller, the current mayor of Albuquerque, released a statement about how Jennifer's loss will be felt throughout the city (below): pic.twitter.com/f3Pras9prs — Mayor Tim Keller (@MayorKeller) April 18, 2018 He was further joined by the former mayor of Albuquerque, Richard Berry, as well (below): No words can express the depth of our sadness at the passing of Jennifer Riordan. Maria and I send our deepest condolences to the Riordan family. Today our community lost a great leader and a beautiful person. — Richard Berry (@citizen_berry) April 18, 2018 Clearly, her death has affected quite a few people in her community. Southwest Airlines CEO Gary Kelly also shared his condolences to the Riordan family (below): "On behalf of the Southwest family, I want to extend my deepest sympathies for the family and the loved ones of our deceased customer. They are our immediate and primary concern and we will do all that we can to support them during this difficult time." A GoFundMe page has already been created by a family friend to help Jennifer's husband and children during the aftermath of their horrible loss. On the page, the family friend's statement about Jennifer is as touching as anything (below): "She was the team mom and everyone's friend. I don't think she ever met anybody who did not become more than just a friend. Her laugh was contagious and everyone wanted to be a part of her energy. You could not be unhappy around Jen. She made everybody's life a little better. Losing Jen is a huge loss for this world." Ugh. Our thoughts and prayers continue to be with the Riordan family, and all of Jennifer's friends, loved ones, and colleagues, during this unimaginably difficult time.

Starbucks Will Hold Nationwide Racial-Bias Education For All Company-Owned Store Employees!

Starbucks is taking grande steps to ensure discrimination is wiped out from its stores. The coffee chain announced Tuesday it would be closing over 8,000 company-owned stores in the United States on May 29 to conduct racial bias education.

The coffee chain announced Tuesday it would be closing over 8,000 company-owned stores in the United States on May 29 to conduct racial bias education. The training will apply to nearly 175,000 employees nationwide, with the goal of preventing future discrimination in Starbucks stores. Related: Why Fox News Is Even More Biased Than You Think! Discrimination like the outrageous arrest of two black men who employees of a Philadelphia location called the cops on because they were just sitting in the restaurant. Or, like when the manager of a Torrance, CA store denied a black man the bathroom code because he didn't buy anything in advance. Seems like sufficient grounds to implement nationwide anti-discrimination training to us! Company CEO Kevin Johnson said in a statement that while Starbucks is certainly not the only company with this type of problem, they remain committed to "being part of the solution." He explained: "I've spent the last few days in Philadelphia with my leadership team listening to the community, learning what we did wrong and the steps we need to take to fix it. While this is not limited to Starbucks, we're committed to being a part of the solution. Closing our stores for racial bias training is just one step in a journey that requires dedication from every level of our company and partnerships in our local communities." All Starbucks company-owned stores and corporate offices will be closed in the afternoon of May 29, during which time, partners will be trained on addressing implicit bias, promoting conscious inclusion, preventing discrimination, and ensuring everyone inside a Starbucks store feels safe and welcome. Way to step up, SB! Now, hopefully black people can have their Starbucks coffee and drink it, too -- without getting arrested! [Image via Starbucks.].....»»

As we reported, it was announced over the weekend that Mrs. Bush had decided to seek comfort care rather than continue additional medical care as the state of her health declined. On Tuesday, she passed away. George H.W. Bush's office confirmed the news of his wife's death in a statement, saying: "A former First Lady of the United States of America and relentless proponent of family literacy, Barbara Pierce Bush passed away Tuesday, April 17, 2018 at the age of 92. She is survived by her husband of 73 years, President George H. W. Bush, five children and their spouses; 17 grandchildren; seven great grandchildren; and her brother, Scott Pierce. She was preceded in death by her second child, Pauline Robinson "Robin" Bush, and her siblings Martha Rafferty and James R. Pierce. The official funeral schedule will be announced as soon as is practical." Barbara was the matriarch of an American dynasty -- the wife of the 41st president of The United States of America and the mother of the 43rd, George W. Bush. George W. released his own statement, remembering his mother fondly: "Laura, Barbara, Jenna, and I are sad, but our souls are settled because we know hers was. Barbara Bush was a fabulous First Lady and a woman unlike any other who brought levity, love, and literacy to millions. To us she was so much more. Mom kept us on our toes and kept us laughing until the end. I'm a lucky man that Barbara Bush was my mother. Our family will miss her dearly, and we thank you all for your prayers and good wishes." Our condolences go out to her family, friends, and loved ones. [Image via Carrie Devorah/WENN.].....»»
