The 91st patient of the Cryonics Institute (CI) is Jackson (Jack) Zinn, a 65-year-old California lawyer with a long history of cryonics membership. Jack has had cryonics arrangements with the American Cryonics Society (of which he was once President), Trans Time, Alcor and most recently CI. He even tried to start his own cryonics organization (the International Cryonics Foundation). He involved himself in a number of cryonics-related legal cases, such as the fight to establish the legal right to cryonics in California. Jack may be most recently remembered for the "High Rollers" conferences that he organized in Laughlin, Nevada in the late 1990s.
The 90th patient of the Cryonics Institute is a middle-aged management consultant who deanimated in the United Kingdom. He had worked in mechanical, electrical, architectural and nuclear applications. He is a well-built man who rarely had health problems until 2008 when he began to experience inflammatory symptoms that were later attributed to cancer. First he had hives, then difficulty breathing and finally a tumor obstruction of an artery leading to his head.
The 89th patient of the Cryonics Institute is a German woman who deanimated in Switzerland on the day following her 80th birthday. The woman's only son had moved to Switzerland 20 years ago. When her husband died 14 years ago she moved to Switzerland to live with her son.
Cause of cardiac arrest was not determined. Three years previously she had experienced a Transient Ischemic Attack (TIA) from which she recovered. She also had signs of arrhythmias. But immediately prior to deanimation she was simply "sick", finding it hurtful to eat and drink.
