LEHI -- Family and friends gathered together Wednesday to celebrate the life of a victim in the tragic airplane accident in Payson.

Jamie Bennee, a certified flight instructor at Utah Valley University died Nov. 17, after the plane she and an aviation student were flying, crashed in Payson.

The plane landed in the front yard of a house, bringing down some power lines with it; but it missed the house and Wilson Elementary school, which is right across the street.

Investigators still don't know what caused the plane to crash.

Bennee leaves behind a husband, a three year old son, and a one year old daughter.
