From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Generosa Rand Ammon-Pelosi (March 22, 1956 in Laguna Beach, California - August 22, 2003 in New York City) was the widow of multimillionaire New York businessman Ted Ammon, who was murdered during their bitter divorce battle. Ammon-Pelosi, and her lover Daniel Pelosi were both suspects in Ammon's bludgeoning death.[1]



She graduated from the University of California, Irvine in 1981, and moved to New York to be an artist. While working as a real estate agent, she met Ted Ammon when she called him after he failed to keep an appointment for an apartment she was to show him. They married in 1986 and adopted a twin boy and girl from the Ukraine, Alexa and Grego. They were about to finalize their divorce in October 2001 when Ted Ammon was found beaten to death. As he had failed to change his will, Generosa inherited the bulk of his estate. "Ammon's estate, according to an inventory filed with the New York State Surrogates Court, was valued at $97 million gross shortly after his death. The document, compiled by his executors, J.P. Morgan Chase & Co. (JPM ), details Ammon's assets down to the last penny."

Relationship and murder

On January 15, 2002, she married her boyfriend, Daniel Pelosi, an unlicensed electrician whom she met when he, literally, showed up at the doorstep of her Manhattan townhouse because he was told she was hiring workers for a remodeling job. Ammon's bank, J. P. Morgan, took the unusual step of challenging Generosa as co-executor of his estate. While dying of breast cancer, she was offered immunity from prosecution to testify against Pelosi before a grand jury, but refused. She cut Pelosi out of her will, but gave him USD a $2 million legal settlement which he used for legal expenses. She left her money to her two children, Alexa and Gregory. A portion of the Ammon estate created a foundation called the Ammon Foundation. It contains a vast sum of money that will outlive the Ammon children, and is used to support some of the more prominent charities.

Generosa appointed her nanny, Kathryn Mayne, legal guardian of her and Ted's adopted twins Alexa and Gregory. She bequeathed a life interest in the house Ammon was murdered in to Mayne to raise the twins in. However in 2005 full custody of the twins was awarded to Ted's sister, Sandra Williams. Pelosi was convicted of Ammon's murder on December 13, 2004.

Generosa was played by Poppy Montgomery in the 2005 made for TV movie Murder in the Hamptons.
