Abstract
Dr. David Jonassen had a very distinct sense of personal responsibility. His independence and self-reliant attitude came naturally from his upbringing in southern Indiana. The personal drive and energy he exuded likely derived from his desire to be physically active and his passion for mountain climbing. Jonassen once said, “There’s something spiritual about going up a mountain.” This sentiment was certainly evident in the personal and professional life that he lived and the legacy he leaves behind.
