Tesla employees Doug Bourn, Brian Finn and Andrew Ingram died in yesterday's plane crash in East Palo Alto. Our thoughts and deepest condolences are with their families. Tesla is a small, tightly-knit company and this is a tragic loss for us.

Doug Bourn, 56, was a senior electrical engineer and a five-year employee of the company. He was deeply involved in many aspects of the Roadster program and was generous with his time, serving as a mentor and friend to many of us. He loved to fly and was a flight instructor.

Brian Finn, 42, was a senior interactive electronics manager with Tesla since July of 2008. He brought overriding optimism and a pioneering spirit to the team developing the groundbreaking infotainment screen and user interface for the Model S. Brian was devoted to using technology to bring the car and its driver together.

Andrew Ingram, 31, was an electrical engineer with Tesla for two and a half years. He was passionate about electronics and exquisite audio systems, and was eager to lend a hand wherever it was needed, from marketing to manufacturing.

Doug, Brian, and Andrew were valued members of the Tesla family. They worked on something they believed in, and they are already missed.

My wife asked me to post this. ETI
When I first heard of Andrew’s death on that ill-fated flight, my first response was “No! He’s 7 years younger than my daughter Heather, his cousin.”
Then, I thought of his parents, Paul and Bobbie (Old nickname. She always called me Dee Dee). They were so proud of Andrew, and their delight in his accomplishments was apparent in everything they said or wrote about him. I cannot imagine what they are going through, but I keep them and his brother John in my thoughts.
I remember Andrew as a sweet, gentle and incredibly loving young man who was very modest about his accomplishments. I am humbled to be able to say that I know and love you Andrew.
I cannot say “Goodbye.” Instead, I will say “I Remember and Love you.”
