    It is with tremendous sadness and grief that we announce the death of Amy Lessack of Blue Bell, PA, who passed on February 20, 2021, after a long battle with breast cancer at the age of 55.  Amy was a graduate of Upper Dublin High School and Penn State University, where she earned both undergraduate and masters degrees.  Her 30-year career was spent in the financial and health care sectors, during which she was a Vice President at First Union and a Senior Vice President at Wells Fargo. Most recently, at AmerisourceBergen, she was a Director in its corporate university. Throughout her life, Amy was a passionate advocate, serving on the boards of Living Beyond Breast Cancer (LBBC) and YMCA Camp Tockwogh.  She was proud of the mission of LBBC and the assistance it provided. She was, however, happiest at Camp Tockwogh. She looked forward to attending its family camp every August so that she could spend time with her fabulous friends — playing tennis, waterskiing and hanging out at the Tiki, laughing and telling stories along the way. Diagnosed with breast cancer at 36, Amy fought an inspiring 19-year battle while supporting — and finding support in — others refusing to be defined by the disease. Regardless of the obstacle, she fought with grace and dignity, even in her final moments.  Not once did she bemoan the diagnosis; instead, it inspired her to live life to its fullest. Amy was predeceased by her beloved father, Jordan Lessack.  She is survived by her mother, Arlene Lessack, and her sister, Abby Lessack (Michael Grendzynski).  Amy also leaves behind many loving relatives and devoted friends, whom she cherished. The family is grateful for their unwavering support over the years. We feel lucky to have had Amy in our lives, and only wish we had more time with her. May her memory be a blessing. We will miss her dearly. Due to restrictions relating to COVID-19, in-person attendance at a graveside ceremony is by invitation only. Family will provide access to video conferencing for the ceremony. If you would like to honor Amy, please consider contributing to Living Beyond Breast Cancer (https://www.lbbc.org) or Female Hebrew Benevolent Society of Philadelphia (https://www.fhbs.org).
