The Anchorage Daily News has an article reporting that the body of Rikuzentakata JET Montgomery “Monty” Dickson has been found.  This is very sad news but also not unexpected at this point.  From the article, it sounds like Monty’s family is relieved to finally know.

Thoughts and prayers and lots of warmth to Monty’s family and friends from JETwit and the JET and JET alumni communities.  You will be missed by many, including those of us who never had a chance to meet you.

    This is so saddening, especially because he died so far from home, but I know he would have considered Rikuzentakata his home. Monty was my successor’s successor. He arrived one year after I left, and we lived in the same apartment which no longer exists. My heartfelt empathy goes out to his sister, family and friends.

    I was a JET in Iwate from 2004-2007. I never knew Monty, but the JET community, past and present, in Iwate is very close one. My thoughts and prayers go out to Monty’s family.
