Memorial and Tree Dedication to Honor Victims of Fighter Jet Crash

From Barry Bernstein, UCCA President, December 8, 2018: Over a hundred University City area residents, along with many elected officials, first responders, San Diego Park and Recreation, U.S. Marines, and leaders of UCPG, UCCA, and ImproveUC/UCCF, were on hand to respectfully acknowledge the 10th Anniversary of the fatal crash in University City. At 11:58 AM, a moment of silence was observed after which four trees, donated by ImproveUC/UCCF, were officially dedicated in honor of the four members of the Yoon family who lost their lives in that fatal crash 10 years ago.

Pia Mantovani-Sud, a resident living across the street from the crash site, led the remembrance program. University City Community Association (UCCA) was proud to co-sponsor this event in conjunction with Citizens Advocating Safe Aviation (CASA).
