Tragically, our co-founder David Chase went missing June 6, 1995 and his body was found 47 days later in Bear Creek, Evergreen, Colorado. His death was featured on the television show, “Unsolved Mysteries”, and Jefferson County Sherrif’s Department assigned homicide investigator Don Olin exclusively to this case for 3 months and Don Olin submitted his 600 page homicide report and concluded that David had been murdered. Currently, although the case is still unsolved, important new evidence continues to come in, and we know that justice will be achieved.

Although David’s life was cut short, his vision lives on in our hearts and our foundation continues to support the important environmental protection and children’s rights issues that David Chase advocated so strongly for throughout his life, volunteering for organizations such as “Children are our Future”, and the “Earthsave Foundation”. Along with Dov, in 1992, he co-founded “The Earthlove Project,” which created it’s own weekly radio show, called “EarthDay, Everyday.” David was the very first co-host with Dov, and these radio shows were the very seeds that grew into the Earth Harmony Foundation. David Chase’s widow, Judi Chase , along with Dov Gertzweig formalized the creation of the Earth Harmony Foundation as a non-profit 501c3 in loving memory of David Chase in 1997.
