I met John in San Antonio in 2007 at a Human Factors Conference. We had lunch together and I learned of all of the time he had spent serving his country. I also learned of his intense personal dedication to the continuous improvement of aviation safety and support of his fellow aviators.

John had graciously agreed to educate us at our 2009 conference. He will be with us in Spirit. Here is the presentation he prepared for us.

Mr John Kemp

I will miss John, he passed away in March 2009. He taught me many things that I will carry with me always.

Thank You
