LINDSAY NICOLE WALLEMAN
May 1, 1984 – April 9, 2013
Lindsay was a sparkling original in the industry, one who bundled an adventurous spirit, effortless beauty, and unique style with her always radiant smile. At the time of her passing, she had become one of the most revered, loved, and admired persons in the field of radio promotion. Based in Chicago, her responsibilities included the Midwest & Northeast regions. Lindsay excelled because of her musical heart, and her legacy as a music lover and advocate for the artists and songs she passionately represented (Faith Hill, Big & Rich, Gloriana, Frankie Ballard, Jana Kramer, Brett Eldredge, and Charlie Worsham) continues to inspire countless individuals. She lived with purpose - and encouraged those around her to always “live with love” and to “remember to love and cherish every moment, chase every dream, and never settle for anything less than you deserve in life!"
FTL is an acronym for “For The Linds”, which was the phrase used by her promotion team as they dedicated all artist successes and airplay in her honor during her rounds of chemo and treatment. Hundreds of emails, pictures, buttons, & stickers were exchanged, and thus the “FTL” phrase and logo became a popular symbol of Lindsay’s battle with sarcoma.
Throughout Lindsay’s journey and among her last wishes was an expressed desire to advance sarcoma initiatives. It is in Lindsay’s honor that the FTL Sarcoma Fund was established to expand national awareness with fundraising initiatives geared to specifically support SARCOMA research. FTL raises money for a Sarcoma Fund through Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center, funded by the T.J. Martell Foundation.
