Jason Sorensen, a paramedic who had his legs amputated following a deadly plane crash in Utah last week, has died, authorities said.
Sorensen “spent his life saving others and his efforts will continue after life, with the donation of his organs to others in need,” according to the Davis County Sheriff’s Office, Sorensen’s former employer.
Pamela Moore, executive director of Intermountain Life Flight, said Sorensen worked for them for 15 years and was a “terrific and dedicated” employee and public servant.
“We will miss him terribly,” Moore said in a statement. “Jason was a member of our Intermountain Life Flight team and family for 15 years. During that time, Jason demonstrated his professionalism, commitment, and caring for the people who we served and cared for on a daily basis.”
Sorensen is survived by his wife and children.
Funeral details are pending.
