“The thing that’s always worried me about being ‘One of the Few,’ is the way we keep getting fewer!”

British Flight Officer David Campbell (played by Richard Burton) in the 1962 epic film, “The Longest Day”

James Yeager, 1973-2022

My esteemed colleague and long-time friend, James Yeager, died of Lou Gehrig’s Disease (ALS) yesterday, in TN.

James was a giant in our Art and a true and genuine friend. I’ve learned so much from him!

It’s been my honor and privilege to teach with James at his facility in TN, and other places. He was always gracious to a fault, and dedicated to the advancement of our Art and to the improvement of his, and our, students and instructors.

It has been my honor to have been his friend, comrade, and colleague.

Our Art is diminished with his death.

I love you, Partner!

Rest in Peace
