Retired Army general Johnnie E. Wilson and his family lost their daughter-in-law, Teisha, on Saturday, May 26. She was 42.
“Our daughter-in-law passed away yesterday after a 13-year battle with cancer,” Gen. Wilson wrote in an email. “She battled every day without one complaint in spite of the odds and doctor’s dire prognosis.”
The four-star general of the United States Army was honored with a Lifetime Achievement Award at the 1999 Black Engineer of the Year Awards (BEYA) Conference.
He is a founding father of the Stars and Stripes Dinner and Mentoring Program, an integral part of the BEYA STEM Conference.
Expressing sympathy to the bereaved family, Tyrone Taborn, producer of the BEYA STEM Conference, wrote:
“Jean and I are heartbroken over this. May you and your family find some comfort in God’s grace. As we observe Memorial Day, Teisha has shown us the life of a true warrior.”
