IN MEMORIAM


Jesse Kostin moved on from this life in February 2008. He was one of the earliest members of Aloha International and served for a time on the Board of Directors. Jesse was very active in all the activites of Aloha International for a great many years, participating in classes, courses, Makahiki Festivals, and joining our group trips to Hawaii and Bora Bora. He moved to Kauai shortly after Aloha International relocated there and continued to participate until his later years, when he decided to follow his natural inclination toward a more mystical life.

Everyone who knew him enjoyed his humor, his insightful mind, and his friendship. We bless his journey wherever it may lead.

The following photos of Jesse with friends were taken during an Aloha International outing in Southern California in 1981.

At one time the "Aloha Newsletter" was called the "HunaGram."

The Fall 1985 Huna Gram states:
"We'd like you to share your experiences and accomplishments gained through the practice of HUNA with your fellow members."

In that issue Jesse submitted the following statement:

"EFFECTS ON MY LIFE THROUGH THE STUDY AND PRACTICE OF HUNA
