Judy Blackburn

It is with much sadness that I inform you that Judy Blackburn – a DST and Defence colleague of many – has recently passed away after a long fight against cancer. Judy had an extensive career in Defence, in the RAAF and most recently in DST’s Defence S&T Program Office supporting technical risk certification and the Scientific Adviser-Joint Office.

Many of us will miss her smiling face and outstanding positivity. For me, she will be a reminder of what’s worth worrying about and what’s not.
