ABC News Doctor and Mindfulness Advocate Jamie Zimmerman Dies After Accident in Hawaii

Jamie Zimmerman, a reporter and doctor for the ABC News medical unit, drowned while on vacation in Hawaii. 

Our mindfulness community, and our world in general, lost a dear and treasured friend two days ago when Jamie Zimmerman died in a swimming accident in Hawaii. All of us here at Mindful who knew her and followed her great work are shocked and deeply saddened.

Jamie was an inspired and indefatigable mindfulness advocate, teacher, and media professional using all of her considerable skills to help improve the lives of folks in communities ranging from West Baltimore’s toughest neighborhoods to the ABC newsroom.

Jamie’s buoyant and cheerful energy, as a champion for mindfulness and a loving human being, will be sorely missed. Her inspiration to bring mindfulness to benefit the lives of many will live on.
