On December 27th, we tragically lost my father-in-law, Jorge Bugaj. A hard working and dedicated father, son , husband, grandfather, and a strong follower of the Lord.
Jorge has been an aviation enthusiast for decades. Starting from gliders, working his way into becoming a CFI (Certified Flight Instructor) and as of the last few years he’s been flying Learjets for Aeromedevac. Transporting everything from organs to patients all over the country for life saving procedures. He is truly a hero in what he did and loved every second of it. On December 27th while on approach to Gillespie airport in El Cajon, his Learjet tragically crashed 1.4 miles from landing.
Aside from being an actual life saver, he was an amazing provider for his family. I want to try and help my mother-in-law, Alexis, so she had just a little less to worry about during this time, and the near future. She’s an amazing woman and has done so much for my own family and others, I want to do all I can to give back and help with expenses, memorials, and some future stability.
Any little amount is helpful, or even sharing this. We appreciate anything and everything!
We find peace in knowing he’s with the Lord now, but he is missed dearly.
Here are just a couple photos of what an awesome person Jorge was:
