Tara Heiss Obituary, Death Cause – Tara Heiss, a legendary point guard for the University of Maryland basketball team, who was a member of the United States Olympic Team, an inductee into the Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame, an ACC Legend, and who passed away late last night, was a pioneer in women’s basketball. Additionally, Heiss was honored with enshrinement into the Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame at the University of Maryland. I say this with a heavy heart because it is a very challenging and sad announcement for me to make, and I do it with great difficulty. You will never find another person who is more amazing, kind, fun-loving, or grounded than Tara.
You will never meet anyone else who is superior to Tara. She was truly one of the nicest and most sociable people you could ever wish to meet in your life. Her infectious enthusiasm for life served as a source of motivation for others who were in her immediate vicinity. Observing how much she cared about the well-being of others brought a smile to my face. She was a phenomenal athlete, but above all else, the best friend and teammate that anyone could ever hope to have in their lives.
She was a true inspiration to all around her. She was always there for her teammates and looked out for their best interests at all times. Tara, may you rest in peace; those who knew you will mourn the loss of your charming personality, infectious laugh, and wonderful friendship for a very long time. You, my dear buddy, have one of the most impressive résumé I’ve ever seen for an angel, and it’s one that I’ve seen a lot of angels have. In fact, it’s one that I’ve seen a lot of angels have.
