TRIBUTE: Hackensack Therapist Who Died In Labor Was 'Amazingly Selfless'

What should have been a time of celebration turned to heartbreak for a New Jersey family suddenly in mourning.

Tana Elizabeth Quigley, 35 originally of Woodcliff Lake, died due to birthing complications on March 14. Baby Parker didn't make it either, leaving dad and fiancé Chris Campana to grieve.

"Having a baby was the best thing that was ever going to happen for us," Campana told Daily Voice. "And it was perfect."

But something happened before delivery and then, they were gone, Campana said.

Campana -- who met Quigley three years ago on a dating site -- feels that it's his responsibility to let the world know how amazing his best friend was.

"She devoted her entire life to helping others," said Campana of Ocean County.

"She was absolutely selfless. She was this amazing woman who touched everybody's lives."

The expecting mom was a licensed clinical social worker formerly practicing in Hackensack. She had been working at a counseling center in Monmouth County, specializing in trauma therapy.

Quigley was also professional dancer having competed for years. She taught classes up until two weeks ago at Maywood Dance Center.

Although her sudden death came as a shock to the whole family, Campana finds solace in knowing that she is with Parker.

"They went together," he said.

More than $10,500 had been raised as of Friday morning on a GoFundMe for the family.

"My heart breaks. You and your family will be in my thoughts and prayers," one person said.

"Just wrecked for you," another said.
