I was a flight attendant for AA for 39 years. I flew with DJ quite often. It was always fun to fly with DJ as he had a great sense of humor. So sorry for your loss but now DJ is truly soaring with the eagles.

It was always an honor and joy to fly with DJ. I am a retired American Airlines Flight Attendant who flew out of BUF and ORD when BUF closed.
DJ Nelson was so unique as he was always so polite, kind, jovial, warmhearted....just a delight...I loved looking at the beautiful photo memories that you so
kindly and proudly have posted...and, I always loved flying with and always felt safe when DJ was at the controls....

Sending DJ's beloved family love.....May DJ now fly with the Angels as their wings surround you in love and comfort...what a wonderful man..
