“We are deeply saddened to learn of the passing of Ellen Tauscher, a devoted member of the Nuclear Threat Initiative Board of Directors and an outstanding public servant who worked tirelessly to strengthen U.S. and global security. Both before and after her public service, Ellen was an outstanding leader in finance and business.
“We always will be grateful for Ellen’s leadership on foreign policy, including nuclear security and non-proliferation, while in the U.S. government, both as a member of the U.S. House of Representatives and at the U.S. State Department—particularly her commitment to ratification of the New START Treaty. She was a champion for the U.S. national laboratories and was dedicated to increasing public awareness of these critical issues.
“Ellen brought tremendous energy, sound judgment and strategic wisdom to the mission of building a safer world for future generations and will be deeply missed.”
