Leo Hald Jensen

Recommended Posts

Leo Hald Jensen was fatally injured when his helicopter collided with another helicopter fighting fires in Albacete, Spain, 30 Sept 2011. Leo was one of the nicest and well grounded people I ever met. When you met him he was immediatly a best friend and remained so ever after dispite the long absences typical of our industry. He was a very good, experienced pilot. I first met him in the oil patch in northern BC 15 years ago and then later in Chile. For years he has worked 2 summers a year fighting fires in Chile and then the Iberian Peninsula. He lived in Chile and leaves his wife Veronica and 2 children Matias and Javiera. God bless and care for you Leo.

It has been several years since I worked alongside Leo, but I'll never forget his big heart and relaxed manner.

 

Our industry has some great guys in it, and tonight we have one less.

This is very sad news.

 

My condolences to the Jensen family for their great loss.
