    Unhappy Condolences to Tamar Katz & family on her brother's accidental death (NYC hit & run)

    Very tragic news for Tamar Katz and her family: http://www.nydailynews.com/ny_local/...ews+%28News%29
    [27-year-old Ronen] Katz was a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania whose sister, Tamar Katz, is a three-time Israeli national figure skating champion, his mother said.

    Katz recently received an award from the Creativity Foundation for his commitment to public service. He was due next month to be honored with a young business leadership award for his work with the Hebrew Academy for special children.

    "There are only good things to say about him," Katz's heartbroken mother said. "A brilliant boy. I wish I had five like him."
    Since Tamar has read FSU in the past, I thought I would start this thread in case she happens to see or hear about it.

    ETA another news article link: http://dnainfo.com/20100920/downtown...l-st-hitandrun
    “Not only was he wise in the business world, but he was a generous person in terms of giving back to the community,” said Rabbi Solomon Stern, executive director of the Hebrew Academy for Special Children. “He had a charitable heart.”

    Stern said Katz helped raise money for his organization, which offers education and therapy for the disabled. Stern was planning to present Katz with the 2010 Young Business Leadership Award at the Hebrew Academy for Special Children’s annual benefit on Oct. 7, he said.

    What a sad, sad story -- and such a senseless death. Condolences to his family and friends -- he seems to have been a very special young man.

    Such promise, and such a sad ending. I truly do not understand the mindset of someone who hits someone while driving and then leaves.

    What a horrible tragedy. No mother should ever have to bury a child - my condolences to all who knew and will miss him, especially his family.
    "I miss footwork that has any kind of a discernible pattern. The goal of a step sequence should not be for a skater to show the same ice coverage as a Zamboni and take about as much time as an ice resurface. " ~ Zemgirl, reflecting on a pre-IJS straight line sequence

    So sad. I always hear it's bad enough to lose a parent, even worse to lose a child.

    RIP. My condolences to Tamar and her family during this difficult time.

    Oh, this is indeed very tragic.
    What a shame. I wish this girl could catch a break after being denied an Olympic berth after she rightfully earned one...my condolences to Tamar and her family.
