For years, JetBlue Crewmembers have been making trips to El Salvador to volunteer in the community. Although each trip has been full of once-in-a-lifetime memories, their most recent visit may have been the most special.
On Jan. 12, 2009, Inflight Crewmember Laura Hibbler died in an auto accident on her way to work. Laura was a dedicated humanitarian and a frequent traveler on the El Salvador relief missions. In Laura’s honor, a group of Crewmembers made their 13th mission to El Salvador to bring donations to an HIV Orphanage and dedicate a medical clinic, built with help from JetBlue Crewmembers in March 2007, in Laura’s name.
