Joseph Mesite, 26, killed following powered paraglider crash near Arapahoe Road and North 119th Street in Boulder County, Colorado
The adult male pilot was found unresponsive and was the only occupant. Medical personnel attempted to save the man’s life, but he succumbed to his injuries and was pronounced dead on scene.
Paramotors are powered paragliders, with a pilot wearing a back-mounted motor with a propeller, providing enough thrust to take off using the paraglider.
Joe and all who knew him, always considered him “The Adventurer.” He had a passion for and fully experienced para-motoring, hot air ballooning, mountain climbing, hiking, snowboarding, longboarding, and searching for airplane wrecks in nature.
