Jennifer Morales, executive director of the $1 billion Houston Firemen's Relief and Retirement Fund, is resigning to pursue an advanced degree. Ms. Morales, who has been executive director since 1992, will continue working with the system on a consulting basis for the next six months. Pam Monroe, deputy director, will serve as acting executive director until a replacement is named.
Ms. Monroe said the board is evaluating whether to form a search committee or to promote from within the system. No timetable has been established
