Doug Jacobs and Greg Zuercher, Co-Founders
Bleckley Foundation

Co-Founders of the Bleckley Foundation are Doug Jacobs, LTC US Army Retired, and Wichita’s Greg Zuercher, Iraqi/Afghan Vet. The Bleckley Foundation  was established to honor Wichita’s native aviator and WWI Medal of Honor recipient Erwin R. Bleckley’s legacy and artifacts at Eisenhower National Airport. The key artifacts will include a life sized bronze statue and an historic 1918 De Havilland 4 aircraft.  The airplane has been undergoing restoration after an accident in 2020 and is being restored to airworthy status.
