A student pilot who died after a small plane crashed into a Miramar home is being remembered by his family as adventurous and loving.
Jordan Hall, 32, of West Park, was on the plane Monday with his instructor, 34-year-old Anthony Yen, who also died.
“It’s a loss. They were young men doing what they love to do,” said Susan Hall Dotson, Jordan Hall’s mother. It’s a tragedy…gone too soon.”
Jordan was an entrepreneur, fisherman and snowboarder, his parents said. And flying was one of his many passions.
He was just five hours away from getting his pilot’s license, his parents said.
“It’s unreal,” said his father, Brian Hall. “There’s still an expectation that it didn’t happen.”
The plane had just taken off from nearby North Perry Airport when it crashed in the neighborhood around 11:40 a.m. Monday.
The plane appeared to hit some power lines and buckle the roof of another house as it fell. No one on the ground or in the house was injured.
The cause is unclear. Investigators from the National Transportation Safety Board and the Federal Aviation Administration are investigating the crash.
