    We both had the pleasure of working with Jill at McGaw. She had the most infectious smile and always a bundle of energy. I fondly remember bowling in McGaw leagues with her, sharing nachos and french fries.

    Our thoughts and prayers are with Jill’s family and all those who had the opportunity to have known her.

  3. Dear Scott and the Savage Family –

    You all have my heartfelt sympathy in the passing of your beloved Jill.

    Jill was one of my bosses when I worked at Allergan, and I just loved her! She was a wonderful boss and I also considered her a good friend. When I think of her I see her big smile and those sparkling eyes – always present even thoughout those dark and difficult days when her illness first became known. The courage, strength and positive sttitude that Jill exhibited was admired by all.

    May the love that you shared with Jill, and the beautiful memories of her that you each hold in your heart, be a source of comfort to you in the difficult days ahead.

    With love and deepest sympathy,
    Sonie Schmidt O’Gara
