JONGBLOED: Hans Jongbloed, 90, passed away Thursday at Gila Regiona1 Medical center. Cremation has taken place and no services have been scheduled. Born in Rotterdam, Holland, he dreamed of adventure. After finishing high school, he went to work for the Holland American Shipping line, making travel to America possible. He was the Dutch national champion in speed skating and also a world-class oarsman. Working with the Holland American Line brought a lasting tribute when in 1929 he drew a cartoon to Liven up his office. His cartoon became, and still is, the logo of the Holland American line. Upon arrival in America, Mr. Jongbloed again took up rowing, with the New York Athletic Club. Again he attained notoriety, although competing with younger men, and narrowly missed qualifying for the 1936 Olympics. He next took a job with the Budd Co. and was responsible for a braking system for trains that is still basically used today, 60 years later. World War II broke out, so Mr. Jongbloed enlisted in the U.S. Army. This was a natural as the family in Holland was active in the Dutch underground. The Army found that Mr. Jongbloed's IQ was well above genius. He served in the Military Counter Intelligence Corps and spoke Dutch, German, English, French and Russian, making him a very valuable military asset. He served America from before the D-Day Invasion through Victory in Europe Day. Next, Mr. Jongbloed landed a job at North American Aviation in California and the family from Michigan to the Los Angeles area. The engineers at NAA were having trouble designing a landing gear that would fit into the nose of the then- state-ofthe-art F-86H Saber jet. Mr. Jongbloed figured it out one night at the dinner table and presented his design to the engineering group the following day. His design prevailed and he was awarded the title of engineer, though he had no engineering degree. Mr. Jongbloed worked on the design of the world's first supersonic fighter plane, the F-100 Super Saber, and on the world's first corporate jet, the Saberliner, before leaving. In 1955, he left NAA to bring his family to the clean air of a sleepy little town called Newport Beach, Calif. Newport Beach afforded a healthier environment and his sons the chance to surf and scuba dive as well as to sail. Having grown up sailing on the North Sea off Holland, this was a welcome form of relaxation. The move brought about a change in career and Mr. Jongbloed went to work for Hughes Aircraft Co. Again, without an engineering degree, he became a group head engineer. His work was on a then-secret-radar missile defense system called Aegis, still the front line naval fleet defense missile. Retirement was next but it didn't last long. The Army needed a new main battle tank. Mr. Jongbloed was called back into service to do the packaging and systems installation on the M-1 Abrams Main Battle Tank, regarded today as the single most capable military tank in the world. Mr. Jongbloed was loved by many people. He is survived by two sons, Pete Jongbloed of San Pedro, Calif., his four sons, Drew, Luke, Cale and Zak, and by Bill Jongbloed of Hurley. Pete Jongbloed is a petroleum engineer and world-class sailor who held the record sailing from Los Angeles Harbor to Honolulu for several years. Jongbloed's company builds racing car wheels and supplies auto makers worldwide with prototype wheels. Bill Jongbloed's book of poetry is dedicated to his father. An interesting note regarding Hans Jongbloed is that his niece retired three years ago as personal secretary to Queen Beatrice of Holland. Hans Jongbloed was an extraordinary man who left his mark on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean. The family misses him more than can be imagined. He was a quiet man in life who discovered Jesus Christ late in his life. He is now in the presence of Jesus Christ, but he is sorely missed here on Earth by Those who love him. Entrusted to Baca's Funeral Chapelsand Baca's Mimbres Crematorium.
