Passing of Sandy Dahl

It is with a deep sense of sadness that the Captain Jason M. Dahl Scholarship Fund announces the passing of Jason’s widow Sandy Dahl. Sandy passed away in her sleep this morning from natural causes near Denver Colorado. Sandy was instrumental in the creation of the Dahl Fund following the tragic events of 9-11, and her guiding light will be missed. The thoughts and prayers of the Dahl Fund go out to Sandy’s friends and family at this very difficult time in their life.

Birding Event and Fundraiser

The Front Range Birding Company and Swarovski Optics of North America will host a festival and fundraiser in support of The Captain Jason Dahl Scholarship Fund. It is part of the 8th annual Front Range Birding Open House that has grown dramatically in popularity in the southwest Denver area. More than 1,000 attendees are expected. Over $70,000 has been raised for scholarship awards since these Dahl Fundraiser events began in 2005. This year promises to be even larger than any of the previous open houses.

“10 Years Later – The Voices of 9/11”

(Part 2 of a 9-part special by The Denver Post)
KEN CARYL — Sandy Dahl arrives wearing pilot’s wings on the lapel of her black dress jacket.

Her hair is neatly composed. Her mascara is done just so.

She is ready to tell the story of the saddest moment in her life yet again so that you will understand why her husband, Jason, is an overlooked national hero.

This has become her life’s calling since Jason’s plane — United Flight 93, on which he was the captain — crashed Sept. 11, 2001, in an empty Pennsylvania field. The plane went down, Sandy reminds you, as crew members and passengers fought to keep terrorists from flying it into the U.S. Capitol or the White House.
