[OS X TeX] suppressing page number in report class

Hello all,

I am trying to format a dissertation using the report document class 
with the following structure: title page, abstract page, table of 
contents page, followed by main chapters.  I am using fancyhdr to 
control the page numbering.  I would like "Abstract" to appear in the 
same typeface as the chapter titles so I use \chapter*{Abstract}, but I 
cannot seem to suppress the page number on that page.  I am using the 
following (simplified) latex code below.  Why does 
\thispagestyle{empty} clear the page number for the title page but not 
the abstract page?  Any ideas around this?

Thank you for any help.
