Farewell to our friend, Dana Larsen

It is with a heavy heart that we share the news that former ISA Director of Operations, Dana Larsen, passed away on May 30, 2018 in Tucson, Arizona after a courageous 12-year battle with Lymphoma. We are honored that Dana chose to share more than 20 years of his humor, passion and generosity with us and find that the world is a little brighter for him having joined us in it. We say goodbye to our friend and share our deepest condolences to all his family and friends.
