More information will follow as we draw nearer to the date of the event.

Farewell, Jeff Alino

contributed by Dr. Mike Willemese

It is with deep regret that we announce the passing of one of our newest members, Jeffrey Alino. A Union resident his whole life, Jeff was born on January 23rd, 1984, and graduated from Union High School in 2002. Jeff's dream was to take to the skies and be a commercial pilot. He decided to pursue his dream job and studied Aviation Studies. He successfully earned his private pilot license and instrument rating by 2010, and received his multi-engine commercial and ATP pilot license by 2012. He flew for multiple companies including Delta, Hawaiian and Trans-Pacific Jet.

Jeff joined our council three months ago. Although he was a member for a short time, he always came to the council with a smile and shared his amazing stories and experiences as a pilot. Unfortunately, Jeff was the co-pilot who lost his life in the recent Teterboro Airport crash on Monday, 15th May.

Jeff was a true family man who loved his mother and his two sisters. He often spoke of how he wanted to buy his mother a retirement home in Texas. Jeff was also a community man helping elderly neighbors maintaining their lawns and cleaning their houses whenever he had time off. His family and friends will miss him dearly.
