JetBlue on Sunday published a statement issued by Connye Osbon, wife of Captain Clayton Osbon, on behalf of the Osbon Family:

“First, we would like to thank all those who have expressed concern and kind thoughts during this difficult time. We appreciate the public’s interest in our family’s current situation and in Clayton’s well-being.

“We would also like to thank the kind and compassionate team of doctors and staff at Northwest Texas Healthcare System in Amarillo, as well as the many friends, coworkers, and loved ones who have reached out to us to wish Clayton well during this challenging time.

“At this time, we ask that the media respect our wishes for privacy. We understand the public’s interest in speaking with Clayton and family members, but we respectfully decline all interview requests and will not be making further statements.

“We hope you can empathize and understand that our focus completely surrounds Clayton’s recovery and the path that lies immediately ahead.

“Finally, we would like to recognize the Crew and passengers of Flight 191 for their effective yet compassionate handling of the situation. It is our belief, as Clayton’s family, that while he was clearly distressed, he was not intentionally violent toward anyone. We know you were placed in an awful situation and we appreciate your ability to respond professionally.”
