In Memorium: Jon van Dyke

It is with sadness that we report the passing of Prof. Jon van Dyke. Jon collaborated with the National Center for Remote Sensing, Air, and Space Law during the first and second Pacific Rim Space Law Conferences. Our thoughts go out to his family and friends. As U.S. Senator Daniel Akaka said in the Honolulu Star Advertiser obituary:

“Jon always stood up for what he felt was pono — right and just,” Akaka said. “He was an inspiration for our community and his students. Because of Jon’s work, the principle of protecting our cultural and historic resources has been preserved, and the tradition of sharing the resources of our beautiful beaches and other natural resources with all continues to be honored.”
