                           HONORING HANS BERG


                            HON. JOE NEGUSE

                              of colorado

                    in the house of representatives

                         Monday, April 29, 2019

  Mr. NEGUSE. Madam Speaker, I rise today because in early March my 
district and the state of Colorado lost Hans Berg of Empire to an 
avalanche in Jones Pass.
   Hans was a professional photographer for an experienced and well-
reputed backcountry ski company. He was working with a guided group 
when an avalanche struck the pass.
   Hans' death is the seventh in my home state this season and was the 
second within one week's time.
   I share my deepest condolences with Hans Berg's family and friends 
during this time of loss and ask for a moment of silence in his honor.
