Suzanne Calley, age 42, lived with her husband, Frank Jensen, in the rural community of San Martin, just south of San Jose. She loved the outdoors, skiing near Lake Tahoe in the winter and scuba diving whenever she could--Monterey, Hawaii, Belize. The couple were diving in the Caribbean not long before she went to Washington.
A California native and Cal State Chico graduate, she worked for the San Jose computer networking giant Cisco Systems in strategic marketing.
"Suzanne's energy and enthusiasm were contagious," Cisco said in a statement. "She was highly respected by her friends and colleagues and her presence will be greatly missed by all."
"She was vivacious, full of fun, ready to go and organized, happy," said her next-door neighbor, Diana Christie.
She also leaves behind her father, mother and brother. "I loved her more than life itself," her husband said in a statement. Their 20th wedding anniversary was Wednesday.
