End of Watch
On behalf of the Board of Directors and the membership of the NSFA it is our duty to inform you of the loss of one of our members. Lee Engine Company and NSFA Board of Director, Tiffany Urresti was killed shortly after takeoff on November 18, 2016 while en route to Salt Lake City with a cardiac patient aboard an American Med Flight aircraft.
Tiffany was a long time member of the NSFA and daughter of Past President Jim Urresti and wife Debbie. She has been a regular attendee at many conferences and functions since she was a young girl and elected to the board at the Mesquite NSFA conference. She was recently employed as a flight nurse with American Med Flight and engaged to be married this May.
Please keep the Urresti family as well as her fiancé James Foster in your thoughts and prayers as they work their way through this terrible tragedy.
