Jill Costello - former Cal rower
Below is a link to a video produced by the campus Public Affairs office on
our late rower Jill Costello - and a friend of hers who ran cross country
from Boston to San Francisco to help raise awareness for lung cancer.

I am wiping tears off of my face as I type this. Jill was such an incredible person and remains an inspiration. It's so wonderful that the people that she has touched have taken her example and carried on doing wonderful things in her spirit and memory.
Just as an aside, I don't believe she was a "rower" per se. I thought she was the coxswain.
True..but she was on the rowing team and not the coxswain team. Her bio says when in how school she "rowed for Saint Ignatius in high school", so she could had rowed back then.
