Funeral Services Tomorrow For Family Killed In Colorado Plane Crash

August 21, 2008

Funeral services will be held in Houston tomorrow for the family killed in a Colorado plane crash late last week.

Services for the Jacomini family are scheduled for 10 a.m. Friday morning at St. Anne Catholic Church. The church is located in the 2100 block of Westheimer, near Shepherd.

Houston energy executive Thomas Paul Jacomini, 45, his wife Susana, 38, and their children, Thomas, 8, and Vivi, 5, all perished when their Cessna 182 went down in bad weather on Colorado’s Mount Guyot near the Continental Divide. The family was flying from Steamboat Springs to the Sugar Land Regional Airport when the plane crashed.

The Jacomini family was reportedly returning to their Brenham-area ranch following a Colorado vacation. The wreckage of their plane was spotted by a hiker in Park County, Colo., about nine miles northwest of the town of Jefferson.

Jacomini, an experienced pilot, was believed to have been at the controls at the time of the crash.

The plane departed fully fueled from the Steamboat Springs airport about 8:30 a.m. last Friday morning. Weather conditions at the time were reported to have included light but steady rainfall, with heavier rainfall, some thunderstorms and light snow in higher elevations.

The plane disappeared from radar as it entered mountain ranges near the Continental Divide. A search was begun by the Civil Air Patrol when the plane failed to arrive at its destination.

The National Transportation Safety Board is investigating the crash.
