From Patagonia:

It's with great heartache that we share news that our friend, ambassador and hero, Jonny Copp was killed in an avalanche on Mount Edgar in China. Our Patagonia community has been deeply saddened by this news. Jonny was very much a part of our identity and an integral part of our community. Jonnyís writing and countless images have graced the pages of our catalog for many years. His stories are among the greatest, his character among the brightest. He was an ambassador to the company, a role he didnít take lightly, and we were so proud to have him as a partner whether in the mountains, at a festival, or casually over beers... Please read the full obituary here.

I have only met him in videos, but from what I have seen and know of him, his death is a loss to the world. Rest in peace.
