Friends of Heart contributors and Supporters,

We are excited to announce our new executive director Tracy Case.

Tracy is a native of Jackson TN. She attended public schools along with public and private colleges here in Jackson. She is married to her high school sweetheart of 28 years and together they have raised three exceptional boys. She recently was promoted to grandma status and loves her new title.

She has been an entrepreneur in Jackson for many years. She has owned and operated restaurants, gyms, and indoor shooting facilities. She has volunteered periodically with Make a Wish Foundation and Carl Perkins Child Abuse Center.

Tracy became interested in cardiac health after losing her mom to a massive heart attack in 2009. Her mother’s first heart attack was at the young age of 46. Tracy has other close family members affected by cardiac disease and she is passionate about being a part of a foundation whose mission is to increase opportunities for clinical research, develop and fund better community outreach, develop a mechanism for improved staff education, while ultimately constructing the first integrated Heart Hospital in West Tennessee.

Her career resume demonstrates the goal driven and high degree of motivation she possesses that’s needed to fulfill the position as Executive Director of Friends of Heart. We are excited to have her join our team and look forward to a very productive future.
