Former resident killed in Texas plane crash
A former New Canaan resident and Yale University grad was one of six people killed in a plane crash Monday in Texas.
Angela “Angie” Webb Kensinger, 54, and her husband, Stuart Roben Kensinger, 55, were killed when a twin-engine Beechcraft BE58 went down while approaching Kerrville Municipal Airport, about 70 miles northwest of San Antonio around 9 a.m. central time, The Houston Chronicle reported.
Angela Webb Kensinger, a 1979 New Canaan Country School grad, was the girls varsity lacrosse coach at St. John’s School, a private K-12 school in Houston.
According to a 1989 New York Times wedding announcement, Kensinger was the daughter of William J. Gaynor Webb of New Canaan. After attending New Canaan Country School, she graduated from Hotchkiss School and Yale University.
In addition to the Kensingers, the victims were identified as Jeffrey C. Weiss, 65, a senior vice president for investments at Raymond James and Associates in Houston, who was the owner and pilot of the aircraft; 58-year-old Mark Damien Scioneaux, 55-year-old Scott Reagan Miller and 45-year-old Marc Tellepsen, all of Houston.
Weiss owned the plane with his friend and fellow pilot Charles Morina, who told The Houston Chronicle that Weiss loved to fly and the pair volunteered transporting sick people from remote regions to Texas hospitals for Angel Flight. Marina told the Associated Press the plane was well maintained.
Tellepsen’s family told KTRK-TV in Houston that he and Scioneaux were on a trip scouting property when the crash occurred
