JUDD, Amy Marie (1983-2009), passenger killed in a plane crash on Santa Catalina Island on February 5, 2009. Pilot Mark Hogland and passenger Marshall Goldberg were also killed.

[Find-a-Grave]: “25-year-old woman who died in a plane crash on California's Santa Catalina Island Thursday grew up in Boise and had just started a new life in Las Vegas, her parents said Tuesday. Amy Judd was one of three people who perished in the crash. The two others on the plane were Judd's friend, Marshall D. Goldberg, 39, of Florida, and the pilot of the plane, Mark Hogland, 48, of California. The cause of the crash is under investigation. Judd's death is a tragic loss for her family and others who loved her, but they said they plan to celebrate the light and joy she brought to their lives next week. She loved chocolate, so the family plans to have a chocolate fountain at her funeral Monday. Judd was born in Pocatello and grew up in Boise. She graduated from Meridian High School in 2001. Divorced last fall, she trained to be an aesthetician in the hopes of working at a spa. She moved to Las Vegas last November to pursue that goal, said her parents, Gyle and Maryann Yearsley of Boise. Judd's friend, Goldberg, had invited her on a four-day spa trip to Laguna Beach as an early Valentine's Day gift. Her parents knew the pair was staying at the Ritz Carlton, but they had no idea that a trip to Catalina Island was part of their plans. "Marshall was a very giving and generous person. He just fawned over her," Maryann Yearsley said. On Friday, the Yearsleys got a phone message from the Coast Guard about a missing plane - and Amy Judd was believed to be on it. The Yearsleys would soon learn that the plane was found crashed on the island, and their daughter was positively identified. Her family remembers Judd as an extremely social, happy and upbeat person who made friends easily. "People she's known for three months are flying in to her funeral," said her sister, Christina Miller, 27. Judd made a visit home to Boise on Jan. 25, her mom's birthday. "She came to surprise me," Maryann Yearsley said.”

February 9, 2009 [LAT]: “Authorities have identified two of the three people killed in a plane crash Thursday on Catalina Island. Marshall D. Goldberg, 39, of Florida and Amy Marie Judd, 25 of Ohio, are believed to be the two passengers who died in the plane crash on a remote hilltop area on the western side of the island.”


February 9, 2009 [LAT]: “Authorities have identified two of the three people killed in a plane crash Thursday on Catalina Island. Marshall D. Goldberg, 39, of Florida and Amy Marie Judd, 25, of Idaho, are believed to be the two passengers who died in the plane crash on a remote hilltop area on the western side of the island, the Los Angeles County coroner's office said today. A search-and-rescue team found three burned bodies in a downed plane near Mt. Orizaba on Friday, a day after the aircraft took off in the rain from the island's Airport in the Sky bound for John Wayne Airport. Goldberg and Judd were tourists who had been traveling together and were staying at the Ritz-Carlton resort in Dana Point, said Orange County Sheriff's Department Spokesman Jim Amormino. The third victim, a male, has not officially been identified, but is believed to be the pilot of the small charter plane, Mark Hogland, 48, president of the Dana Point charter flight company SkyBlue USA. Goldberg and Judd were identified by their driver's licenses. Their bodies have not yet been examined. Hogland had a private pilot's license and an instrument rating that qualified him to fly during bad weather, Federal Aviation Administration records show, but he was not licensed to conduct charter flights. Twenty people have died in eight plane crashes coming in or out of Airport in the Sky in the last decade, including the three killed Thursday. Before that wreck, the most recent crash happened a little more than three months ago, when three people were killed in a crash off the end of the runway.”
