Lowline Co-founder’s Ex and Children Aboard Missing Plane in Bermuda Triangle

Posted on: May 18th, 2017 at 9:39 am by

Tragedy struck the city design community on Monday when local Tribeca event space designer, Jennifer Blumin, her two small kids, and boyfriend-pilot disappeared on a private jet flying through the Bermuda Triangle.

Blumin, 40, and her two sons, aged 3 and 4, as well as New Hampshire resident Nathan Ulrich, 52, were identified by the Coast Guard as aboard the missing plane. They had spent Mother’s Day in Puerto Rico and were flying to Florida when the engine reportedly cut out at 2pm Monday.

Blumin was CEO of Skylight Studios, a design firm that specializes in transforming underutilized locales into event spaces. Her ex-boyfriend, and father of the children, is James Ramsey, co-founder of the Lowline underground park still in the works.

“I lost what I loved more than anything,” James Ramsey told the Daily News Wednesday. “I keep hoping it’s not real and I’ll wake up. Wouldn’t wish this pain on the worst person in the world.”

The Coast Guard released a photo of airplane debris yesterday, believed to match the MU-2B model that Ulrich was piloting.
