In memory of Stephan Jones

May 8, 2019

We are deeply sorry to announce that Stephan Jones, a long-time member of our extended Nunalleq project family passed away this past week. Stephan was our good friend, colleague and a long-time supporter of the Nunalleq project. Stephan worked in many support and leadership capacities in Quinhagak and most recently as the Director of Quinhagak Heritage Inc. and manager of the Nunalleq Culture and Archaeology Center. Stephan was full of good ideas for the future of the Culture Center and we will do our best to carry on and make them happen. We will always remember Stephan for his kindness, his optimism, his intelligence, and his amazing cooking skills. He will be sorely missed by all who were lucky enough to know him.

    I send condolences after learning the news while in Quinhagak last week I spent time imagining a simpler Nunalleq life, which would’ve been cool to discuss with Mr Jones Anyone who visits the museum is fortunate
    Thank you Teri and Meta for the tour
