Wendy Rush, wife of missing submarine Titan’s pilot, is descendant of US couple who died on Titanic

Missing submarine Titan's pilot

Wendy Rush, who is the wife of the missing Titanic tourist submarine pilot, is reportedly a descendant of the US couple who died when the gigantic ship sank in the Atlantic Ocean in 1912. The US couple have been immortalised in James Cameron’s Hollywood movie ‘Titanic’. Reports claim that Wendy Rush is the great-great-granddaughter of retailing magnate Isidor Straus and his wife, Ida. The US couple were traveling as first-class passengers on the Titanic when it hit an iceberg and sank in April 1912. 

Wendy Rush married Stockton Rush in 1986. Stockton Rush is the CEO of OceanGate, the company which operates the Titanic tourist submersible that lost contact on June 18 and caught global attention. Mr Rush was also piloting Titan, the submersible that was taking tourists to the Titanic and has now lost contact. 

According to reports, Stockton Rush is among the five people who are on the missing submarine with rescuers racing against time to find the vessel by strengthening their search within just hours of oxygen support remaining. According to Wendy Rush’s LinkedIn Profile, she is the OceanGate communication director and has taken part in the company’s three expeditions to the Titanic. 

As far as archival records are concerned, Isidor Straus did not take a seat on a lifeboat as a large number of women and children were still aboard the Titanic which was sinking after hitting an iceberg. Isidor was joined by his wife and remained together, standing arm in arm till the ship completely sank. While Straus’s remains were found at sea several weeks after Titanic’s sinking, his wife Ida’s body was never found. 

Submarine Titan, which commenced its journey to the Titanic wreck site, located at a depth of 12,500 feet in the Atlantic Ocean, lost contact after nearly two hours on Sunday. The submarine is equipped with a four-day emergency oxygen support. On Wednesday, rescuers hurried more ships and vessels to the area where Titan disappeared, hoping underwater sounds they detected for a second straight day might help narrow their search in an increasingly urgent mission.
