Sally Tepper was . . . I don’t even know where to begin. But she’s gone from this earth. Our hearts are so heavy and the grief is coming in increasingly heavy waves.
I’m clinging, just as some of you will, to the memories of a deep and rich journey with Sally and am grateful for the relationship she had with her Mama Rudd ( Jeanette Rudd). We often say that Sally has been one of the strongest people we’ve met and have been continually inspired by her tenacity, sincerity, artistry, and vulnerability. She freely expressed her surprise and gratitude for life’s beauty and of course, her dismay, at life’s struggles. We don’t know everything she faced, but she was a powerful force.
Many of you have cared for Sally and will always love her deeply. Many of you stood side by side with her and have your stories and memories. Some of you have just heard about her. Music may have brought all of us together, but that was just the beginning of the important stuff. I’m sending love to all of you who knew, or wanted to know Sally.
She was about love and care.
She is a treasure, a precious gift from God.

There are no words to describe the agony many are bearing upon the passing of Sally Tepper. Sally was like an older sister to me. I was lucky to have met her so early on in high school and I knew right off the bat what a special and beautiful person she was. When I applied to Baylor she was my biggest support. She went out of her way to spend time with me and my mother when I first auditioned for the school, and I truly believe had I not had someone like that for me there, the trajectory of my entire life would be different. Sally always had my back. We both saw each other at our worst, but I can never repay the kindness she showed me in my darkest times. My heart goes out to her family, her colleagues, and everyone in her circle that realizes what a light she was.

Sally, you were one of my biggest role models. You were so genuine, caring deeply and emoting beautifully every time you played. And you were fierce and disciplined, always fixed on being better and honing in your craft. You were a big part of the reason I auditioned at Boston, and I still get goosebumps thinking about your Animal Farm solo. I think about how initially I was terrified of you, but then I realized how kind and radiant you were. I will never forget some of the memories we shared at Baylor – laughing until it hurt during brass quintet run-outs when our music kept getting blown off our stands. Glancing over at the trumpets and sharing a smile with you during a wind ensemble performance. How you weren’t afraid to demand more from yourself, and how you shared your vulnerability in such powerful and profound ways. I am truly heartbroken.
Rest in peace, Sally Tepper. I can’t wait to see you again.

Words can not express how broken I am over the passing of Sally Tepper. She was a beautiful person and was always grateful to all that helped her to improve as a musician. She brought sunshine to any room she entered. Sally led a master class for my band students this past April and kids loved her! This video is form her 8th grade year playing The Trumpeters Lullaby. This is one of my proudest moments as a band director. It was a pleasure to share the moment with Sally. Rest In Peace Sally! Our loss is heavens gain.

So heartbroken at the loss of my friend and trumpet hero Sally Tepper.
Even at the ripe age of 22, she was an absolute role model to me, as a trumpet player, and even more so a human being. I feel so absolutely blessed to have had the opportunity to get to know her. She’s one of the few people in world who I honestly can say didn’t have a mean bone in her body; she radiated positivity and compassion in every situation.
Even though I’m older than her, I told her, “When I grow up, I want to sound like Sally Tepper”. She totally thought I was kidding and laughed, but it’s true. She had the most natural, gorgeous sound, and she’d never believe me, but she also had the most tasty, swinging feel for playing jazz. I’ve never felt so much mutual respect for someone.
I think my favorite memory with Sally was being on tour in Kansas, and going to this ridiculously good southern food place called Dempsey’s Biscuit Co. We ate there for dinner, and the only thing we could talk about all night was how ridiculous it was. The next morning, while I was sleeping, she had woken up early, gotten an Uber, and went back to the Biscuit Co, even though we had a pretty early report time. I remember her coming back, and us laughing super hard about the fact that she woke up early, spent $$ getting an Uber, and waited for them to open, just to get chicken fingers. She then proceeded to give me half of her food, like it was no big deal. That’s just the kind of person Sally was. So absolutely gracious and giving. I have memories that will last a life time from being her roommate on that tour, and I’m so thankful for each and everyone of them.
