Tam O'Shaughnessy, Ph.D.
Cofounder, Sally Ride Science Executive Director, Sally Ride Science at UC San Diego Dr. Tam O'Shaughnessy is cofounder of Sally Ride Science and executive director of Sally Ride Science at UC San Diego. Tam grew up in California and played professional tennis from 1971 to 1974. She later earned B.S. and M.S. degrees in biology from Georgia State University and a Ph.D. in school psychology from the University of California, Riverside. Tam has written 13 science books for children, including six with Sally Ride. As a scientist and educator, Tam became concerned about the underrepresentation of women in science and technical professions. In 2001, Sally, Tam, and three friends-Karen Flammer, Terry McEntee, and Alann Lopes-founded Sally Ride Science to try to narrow the gender gap in science. Tam served as the company's chief creative officer, guiding creation of the Cool Careers in STEM and Key Concepts in Science programs. She was also chief operating officer from 2009 to 2013, chair of the Board of Directors from 2013 to 2015, and chief executive officer from 2014 to 2015. The University of California, San Diego, acquired Sally Ride Science in October 2015 and named Tam executive director of the resulting nonprofit organization. Tam also serves as a member of the Advisory Board for the Smithsonian's National Air and Space Museum.

Ride is survived by her partner of more than two decades, Tam O'Shaughnessy; her mother, Joyce; her sister, Bear; her niece, Caitlin; and nephew, Whitney; as well as her staff of 40 at Sally Ride Science.
O'Shaughnessy, at Ride's side during the astronaut's lengthy battle with pancreatic cancer, co-authored four books with Ride and is a professor emerita of school psychology at San Diego State University, and chief operating officer and executive vice president of Ride's foundation, Sally Ride Science. In Ride's death, many are asking: Who is Tam O'Shaughnessy? The answer is someone who closely shared Ride's passion for science and space. According to sallyridescience.com, O'Shaughnessy "helped found Sally Ride Science because of her long-standing commitment to science education and her recognition of the importance of supporting girls' interests in science. TAM O'SHAUGHNESSY Tam O'Shaughnessy was Sally Ride's partner for 27 years, but their partnership was cut short Monday when Ride - the first American woman in space - died of pancreatic cancer at just 61 years old. But her longtime partner, Dr. Tam E. O'Shaughnessy, is a very accomplished woman in her own right. O'Shaughnessy was by Sally Ride's side throughout the astronaut's 17-month battle against cancer, and before Ride became ill they co-authored four books, including "Mission: Planet Earth: Our World and Its Climate - and How Humans Are Changing Them" and "Voyager: An Adventure to the Edge of the Solar System." O'Shaughnessy, a professor emerita of school psychology at San Diego State University, is also chief operating officer and executive vice president of Sally Ride's foundation, named Sally Ride Science , where the duo and their staff nurtured young students and worked to encourage them to pursue their passions in science, tech, engineering and math. Dr. O'Shaughnessy will not receive the benefits due to the spouses of deceased astronauts, because the United States federal government does not recognize same-sex marriage. Nor has she received much mention or recognition for the active role she took in Dr. Ride's work as the nation mourns. As we remember Dr. Ride, we also extend our love and sympathy to her loving partner, Tam O'Shaughnessy. Wikipedia: Tam O'Shaughnessy
