Habitat for Humanity joins with the Long Beach community in mourning the loss of five people who lost their lives when the small plane they were flying in made an emergency crash landing at the Long Beach airport yesterday. Several of those aboard were fellow builders and real estate developers by trade and many of us on staff had the pleasure of doing community service alongside them over the years.
Our hearts and prayers are with the families affected by this tragedy, and we pray for the speedy recovery of Mike Jensen. We have a treasured memory of Mark Bixby and Mike Jensen coordinating a Habitat for Humanity build with us in 2008. Mark’s blog about the event can be read here.
On this day heaven has gained 5 new angels and we as a community will continue to benefit from their generosity and vision for years to come.
Councilman Gary DeLong posted a beautiful blog today that will help you know more about their legacy.
