FASCV Member Jerry Haag Succumbs to Cerebral Hemorrhage

It is with great sadness that we report the passing of long-time Fire Associates member, Jerry Haag.
Jerry was feeling ill on the morning of Monday, April 11, and called 911 around 8:00 A.M. He was experiencing a very strong headache and vision problems. Mountain View Fire’s Engine 53 responded, Jerry met them at the door, and was able to talk with the crew. They took Jerry to El Camino Hospital, but he went downhill from there, and at some point lost consciousness. The diagnosis was a massive cerebral hemorrhage and there was nothing the doctors could do for him. Jerry did not regain consciousness and died that evening at approximately 7:30 P.M.
Jerry was a past-president of Fire Associates, emergency radio coordinator for the City of Mountain View, and a former civilian Fire Inspector for the San Jose Fire Department.
There will be a memorial service for Jerry at 3:00 PM on Sunday, April 17, at Immanuel Lutheran Church, 1715 Grant Road in Los Altos.  A reception will follow. All who knew Jerry are invited to attend.
