HSPRD files suit on behalf of Family of 2015 College Valedictorian Killed in Ethiopian Air Crash

HSPRD filed suit in the Northern District Court of Illinois on behalf of the family of Stéphanie Lacroix against The Boeing Company and Rosemount Aerospace, Inc. for her wrongful death from the March 10 Ethiopian Airlines crash. At the time of the crash, Stéphanie was working as a project officer for UNA-Canada Service Corps. In connection with that role, she was on Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302, leading a youth delegation to a conference of the United Nations Environment Assembly being held in Nairobi, Kenya. Stéphanie died carrying out the good works she had devoted her adult life to. Stéphanie learned the value of hard work and educational efforts at an early age. She was selected to give the valedictorian speech at her graduation from the International Development and Globalization program at the University of Ottawa in 2015 and also received a bilingual degree (French, English). Stéphanie’s passion for social justice and development brought her around the world helping the less fortunate. When she was not traveling to pursue her humanitarian work, she loved coming home to her native Timmins, Ontario to spend quality time with her family. She was a devoted daughter and sister and her family is suffering a terrible loss.

Mark S. Dym, who is heading the litigation for the family, stated: “Stéphanie was a star who accomplished a staggering amount in her lifetime and was the pride and joy of her parents, sister, extended family and everyone in her hometown of Timmins, Canada. This highly talented, charming and skilled young lady positively impacted everyone she met. Her life, filled with zeal and empathy, was cut short by the outrageous and wrongful conduct of Boeing and others who were focused on profits rather than safety, ultimately causing the devastating crash of Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302.”
