  • Claudia Chaufan

    John Paul Chaufan Field’s parents (Julian Field and Claudia Chaufan) will remain eternally grateful for the extraordinary effort of the Yosemite rescue team and the fabulous support provided to us by personnel at the University of California in Santa Cruz, all of which allowed us to have our son back, not only alive but in very good health.

    Our eternal gratitude.
    Claudia and Julian
