Jack Lundelius served in the U.S. Coast Guard. He died in the crash of an RC‑54V (DC‑4) near McCormick, S.C. after being furloughed from Seaboard. He was the copilot on the flight which was carrying 15,000 pounds of marijuana. The DC‑4 was owned by Tiburon Aircraft and the president of Tiburon Aircraft was Keene Edenfield, another Seaboard pilot hired seven months before the crash. Edenfield claimed that the aircraft was stolen.
Jack is survived by his wife, Midori Lundelius; his daughters, Naomi Lundelius Torrese and Deborah Lundelius Core; their husbands, and four grandchildren. He also leaves behind two sisters, Constance Roberts and Barbara Stang.
