Carlos Consuegra

Position

Ramp Services Agent

Carlos Consuegra of Union City, NJ, passed away on March 26, 2020. Consuegra, 52, was a 12-year employee and ramp services agent for United Airlines at Newark’s Liberty International Airport. A devoted father and grandfather, Consuegra enjoyed signing, karaoke, and playing and coaching baseball and softball. He loved his job because it allowed him to take his parents on trips to visit family and close friends. Fellow members remember him as a generous coworker who was always willing to share knowledge with younger members of the team. “Carlos’s passing is a blow to all of us who are facing this unprecedented challenge to our industry and our nation from the front lines,” said IAM District 141 President and Directing General Chair Mike Klemm. “We are in mourning, but this sadness will only strengthen our fight for better protections at work.”
