It is with profound sadness that we announce the loss of our friend and colleague Matt Vecere, who was a passenger on Ethiopian Airlines flight 302 from Addis Ababa to Nairobi.
Matt was an amazing writer, an avid surfer, and a truly selfless person. He was most at home helping others, as evidenced by his dedication to the people of Haiti following the devastating earthquake in 2010.
We will miss his laugh, his wit, his sense of humor, but most of all, the kinship and friendship that he brought to everything he did. Our heart is with Matt’s family and friends, as well as the loved ones of all who lost their lives in this horrible tragedy.
