UPDATE 9/30: Suzanne Seeman Obituary Released

The jogger killed yesterday in a hit-and-run crash that seriously injured her two companions was Suzanne Wetzel Seemann, an HSU geography lecturer and the wife of Hank Seemann, Humboldt County's deputy director of environmental services.

Suzanne Seemann specialized in oceanic and atmospheric science, according to a press release from Humboldt State University, which described her as an "extraordinarily talented and popular instructor."

She has also lectured at the College of the Redwoods, and before coming to Humboldt had worked for the Cooperative Institute for Meteorological and Satellite Studies at the University of Wisconsin in Madison.

An older resume from her days as a researcher in Madison shows that she had an undergraduate degree from Princeton, and dual masters' degrees from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Wood's Hole Oceanographic Institution in environmental engineering and applied ocean physics and engineering.

According to an article in today's Times-Standard, her survivors include two children, aged 7 and 4. She was 40 years old.

Update 10:29 a.m.: The other two joggers, Terri Vroman-Little, 50, and Jessica Hunt, 41, were in stable condition this morning at St. Joseph Hospital, a hospital spokeswoman said.
