A Night Of Adventure

MOTAL - Museum of Teaching and Learning
had a fundraising Event on August 30, 2009 and I was lucky enough to have been invited
along with my son's held at Cal State Fullerton University.
What a wonderful evening, jazz music by Elnora and Sumpthin Cookin
Mark Reiner who is keeping the Film Festival Organization alive and thriving. Came out for Colorado
and brought some wonderful films for us to watch.
Here are some of Jonny Copps' photographs and journerls on display.

We all got to watch Alpinist Jonny Copp explore the long process of making alpine climbing trips a reality-
from the inspiration, throught the training, the partnership and the risk, to the elusive summit - via footage from recent climbs in the Himalayas,Patagonia, Kashmir and other alpine locales.
Longways- 12 min. flim directed by and featured Jonny Copp was shown.

Flying Over Everest -60 min.
by Fabio Toncelli

Flying Over Everest follow the antics and adventures of Angelo D'Arrigo and his efforts to fly a hand glider
over the summit of Mt. Everest. The true story of not only the flight, but also two Himalayan Eagles he raised to fly with him over Mt. Everest.
I can not tell you how much inspiration these films give you, and the passion that each and every person
pours into their dreams and goals to make them a reality.
We left feeling renewed challenged and alive.

The Large drum was a gift from my son, the smaller drums
Jonny made to earn his degree in geology from University
Of Colorado at Boulder.

Jonathan's Flute Solo

There were several rooms at the Muckenthaler that had been created
to display his writing,photos, and letters, poems and his personal journals

Jonathan's' Memorial Service Was Held here in California at the Muckenthaler, they had two

more at Colorado one Private and one for the media, my sons were able to attend all three.

It was a 6 hour celebration and I have never seen or experienced anything like it.

Jonathan "Jonny" was born into a life of adventure on March 28, 1974 in Singapore.

In June he was tragically killed by an avalanche while attempting a new route on Mount Edgar

in Sichuaun Province, China.

for the first few years of his life. Jonathan saw the world from the back seat of a pop-up camper as the family took their time traveling westward from Thailand to California.

Jonny founded the internationally-acclaimed Adventure Film Festival in Boulder, CO to provide a platform where adventure filmmaker could share their work.

Jonathan dedicated his life to his loves: his family, his friends, and the mountain peaks forever on the horizon, waiting to be explored. He was the embodiment of the Golden Rule and was larger than life legend that will be deeply missed. Johnthan is survived by his parents, Phyllis

and John Copp and his sister,Aimee.

Jonny lived his dream and is teaching us how to live ours.

Thank you for sharing your gift with us and your motto you set at 16 years old.

Be Kind To Everyone.

Make a stranger a Friend.

Live in the moment and stay in the moment.

You are already missed so much, goodbye our sweet friend.
