Amy Gannon helped found Doyenne, a nonprofit that serves to empower female entrepreneurs in Madison, Fox 47 Madison reported.

“When Amy was in front of a room, she really came to life,” said Doyenne co-founder Heather Wentler said, according to the station. “She just brought this energy with her that nobody will ever be able to replace.”

Gannon’s daughter was an eight-grader at Hamilton Middle School in Madison. The school district issued a statement that said, “As individuals, we all have our own ways of coping with bereavement. For many of our students, this could likely be their first experience with this type of loss,” Fox 47 reported.

Friend Dorecia Carr said Gannon’s husband and son were not on Thursday’s flight and are still in Hawaii, the Associated Press reported.

Carr said Gannon put up money so her teenage son, AJ Carr, could become an actor.

AJ Carr has appeared in “Chicago P.D.,” “This Is Us,” and “All American.”

“She did so much. She paid for us to leave Madison because she believed in him,” Dorecia Carr said. “So much happened because of her. This is a huge loss.”
