Jill Sampey

Jill Sampey has passed away on Saturday, February 17th. It comes to a shock to everyone who knows her. She was the most smiley, heartwarming and caring people we have. She was one of the smartest and best in our industry. The industry is just learning the news but the outpouring of support and messages from the people in the SEM industry is overwhelming.

I wanted to share some of the publicly accessible stories and messages from the community.

Barbara Boser, an industry vet, said on Facebook:

I’m stunned and heartbroken to have read on Facebook that my friend Jill Sampey passed away. I last talked to her in August and she was so excited about a friends wedding that she was getting ready for.

My favorite memory of Jill is her hoop earrings. She wore big ones and I started wearing them because I thought they looked so good on her!! That and the time we got in trouble at a party in NY for dancing on the tables!!

Jill was young and I have no idea how she passed away but we lost a beautiful soul in the Search Marketing World today.

Scott Polk said on Facebook:

We lost a industry veteran this weekend. RIP Jill Sampey

Jim Hedger said on Facebook:

RIP SEO Jill Sampey. You were well loved and you will be widely missed.

Krystyn Campbell said on Facebook:

Thinking of the fun times with sweet Jill Sampey and Jen Perry, back in NYC. Rest In Peace Jill, we’ll never forget your contagious laughter and killer smile. Life is short. We’ll be thinking of you often.

Julie Carris said on Facebook:

On Saturday, February 17, we lost one of the most vibrant, loving people this world has ever known. Jill saw everyone through God’s eyes. Her compassion for others was beyond compare. She lit up a room with her smile and had a sparkle in her eye that you can never forget.

Jill’s family has asked that you post your favorite memories of her to her wall. They are finding comfort in knowing how much Jill was loved how she touched so many people’s lives.

We love you Bean. ❤️
