Oh shit. I KNEW her. I went to college with her. I briefly dated her friend. I was also briefly buddies with her younger brother and went (once) to their family summer home on Martha's Vineyard. Crap, that sucks.Jamie Tarses, the first woman to head a network entertainment division, died yesterday from complications of a stroke. She was 56.
Before Tarses became the president of ABC Entertainment, she helped develop hits for NBC, including Friends and Frasier.
