Monique Pegues Dies; Worked for Fort Worth T

Monique Pegues, 37, director of government relations for the Fort Worth Transportation Authority (The T), died unexpectedly on Jan. 22. She oversaw private-sector lobbyists in Washington and Texas and managed The T’s local/regional government and community relations, grants administration and Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) efforts.

“We are deeply saddened by Monique’s tragic, untimely death,” said Dick Ruddell, president of The T. “She was an outstanding performer throughout her 11-year career with The T and made such a difference in the lives of those around her, professionally and personally. She had a passion for transit and was well respected by all our government officials.”

Pegues joined The T in 1999 in the employer services department and was promoted to community outreach liaison in the marketing department in 2002, grants and DBE administrator in 2004, and her most recent post in 2008.

She served as president of the Dallas-Fort Worth Chapter of the Women’s Transportation Seminar in 2008 and 2009 and was one of Mass Transit magazine’s “Top 40 Under 40” in 2009.
