Sandy Dahl, Wife Of United Flight 93 Pilot Dies At Age 52

Former United Flight Attendant Founded Scholarship Fund

The Captain Jason M. Dahl Scholarship Fund announced on its website that Sandy Dahl died in her sleep Friday from natural causes near Denver.

“Her guiding light will be missed,” the group said.

Dahl became a public face for 9/11 families by founding the Jason Dahl scholarship fund to provide money for young pilots to receive their education. As of 2011, 16 students had received scholarships and some were already commercial pilots, NBC station KUSA of Denver reported.

"Sandy's courage picked up where her husband's left off," Patrick White, president of Families of Flight 93, said Saturday in a statement obtained by the Post. "Her dedication to completing the Flight 93 National Memorial as a way to honor her husband's heroic actions on 9-11, and those of his fellow crew members and passengers, is a significant part of her legacy."

"Both of them were my best friends," Capt. David Dosch, president of the Jason Dahl Scholarship Fund, said of Jason and Sandy Dahl. "Unfortunately, both of them had a short period of time to enjoy their company."

A memorial dedicated to the 40 passengers and crew of Flight 93 was dedicated last September.

"They did what would almost never be asked of anyone,” Dahl had said, referring to the crew of Flight 93. "I want to make sure history is written," she said then.

Jefferson County coroner's officials have confirmed Dahl's death, but the exact cause has not been released, the Post said.
