    I am sad to report that about 30 minutes ago, @ejensen ‘s sister Kari reported that Eric passed away on May 7th.

    Attached is a photo of his blue and orange (Broncos colors) airplane taken at OSH from a FB post of his late last year where he stated that his airplane had been to OSH, but he had not.

    RIP Eric. We’ll miss seeing you and your airplane here in Colorado.

    Awh man! I always enjoyed reading his messages on this board, and I will certainly miss him around here. Never easy to lose a fellow POA member and pilot.

    Rest easy, Eric!

    Blue skies and tailwinds!

    :( Blue Skies, Eric.

    He gave me a ride from APA to PUB in his Jabiru a number of years ago during a POA get-together.

    I’m shocked and saddened. Only met him a few times, but very nice guy and very supportive of others in aviation. Very sorry.

    Just saw this and am saddened. Eric was one of the early users of POA. Always a reasoned post or reply. He will be missed.
