Who We Are:

UFO Yukon Research Society was formed in 2001 after the October 2000 UFO Conference held in Whitehorse. About a dozen individuals became interested. The founder Martin Jasek, moved to BC in 2001 and Hans Grasholm became the cornerstone of the organization until he passed away unexpectedly in 2005. Interest in keeping the monthly meetings going dwindled. Today, Martin Jasek continues to investigate Yukon as well as BC UFO sightings with the help of Cher Davidson who resides in Whitehorse.

In 1997 he started to investigate UFO cases in the Yukon. In 2000 he helped organize the first Yukon UFO Conference. The event was sponsored by the Yukon Government Millennium Program. Shortly after the conference, several members approached him and said that they would like to be involved in some way. Martin was elected president of the UFO Yukon Research Society in the organization's debut year. Since then he has moved to Vancouver but continues to be very involved in the organization as well as UFO*BC.
