Jessica Schab and Diego Fontanive’s manipulative and toxic EOF Is this finally the begining of the end for the twisted and manipulative cult, Jessica Schab and Diego Fontanive’s EOF? I am going to summarize briefly some of the topics I plan to discuss on the radio program and why this is such an important story. I encourage everyone who has a stake in this to listen, particularly eof members who may want to stop endorsing the reckless activities of Jessica and Diego who use fear as a form of control and even censorship (they disguise their censorship attempts with an interesting term= cyber bullying) Thank you to everyone for the overwhelming level of support and empathy for our story now coming from around the world. With typical irony, our story will be broadcast on Valentine’s Day, 2016. It is certain to be a controversial and heart-wrenching program. See the latest: Clip from the third live broadcast and recent statement by Steven from 4.12.16 and part of my reaction to Jessica’s address at the faithtofaithless conference http://flightflash.com/2009/11/09/chasing-unicorns-and-the-mental-health-profession/ The eof became a bit riled up when they heard I would be doing this interview and understandably so. They do not want our voice to be heard. I’ve predicted all along that the story of what they did to Melissa and I would rattle the foundation of the eof to rubble. To that end, I produced a documentary about it. Of course the great irony of this, is that for Melissa’s sake, I hoped my film would never see the light of day! It is certainly not an attack on her, but important to tell the truth, and reveal their very intentional and brutal result…my physical abuse…her emotional and financial ruin, and the continuing exploitation of my fiance. Trying my best to delicately encourage her to come back home (and before she finally loses everything), they viciously turned her into a weapon against me with truly horrific result. I love and forgive her for what happened and know she is not to blame. I don’t insist on calling her my fiance because I’m deluded or crazy…it is a show of resistance for what they stole of her dignity by relentlessly giving her no choice in the matter of our togetherness. I was an eyewitness and that is an absolute and very despicable fact. I fight this for her. That is an energy I will hold onto for her until she has the energy to fight them again on her own. This is more than just a lovestory. None of this happened over night and continues to evolve in its mystery and complexity. Everything I’ve learned little by little about the eof and their exploitation of Melissa completely reinforces the information in my film. I’d certainly be willing to bet there will be one person in Europe who will be banned by the eof from listening to this very important broadcast and that is Melissa herself. It is still a huge mystery if she understands what … Continue reading

Revelations: in multiple senses of the word…

Last evening when I watched a documentary about an odd history that played out in Oregon in the 1980’s based on a cult, I had some debate about the meaning of “cult”. I was confused as to what the intent of this documentary was, and what was about to be revealed…       I insisted, “But a cult by definition implies fraud, sexual exploitation, and other activities defined as crimes!” The Jonestown massacre is an example of one extreme. What is on the other extreme? One person, a thousand? Brainwashing is only where it begins, but if that’s all it amounts to, maybe there’s no crime in that? Was a cult automatically a bad thing? I was so confused.        I am not a mean person. Lately I’ve found myself conflicted by the seemingly “unfair” “persecution” of Jessica Schab. She had the audacity to come out after the implosion of the EOF as a “former cult leader”. Too soon to capitalize on the pain she’s caused. My  feelings on her were reaffirmed when I watched the latest video she posted last evening. She had a decisive impact on the greatest event in my life, which was the brainwashing and exploitation of my former “fiancé”. Is she ready to be forgiven? Surely she as all people deserve their chance for redemption. She continues to bury this incident under the rug. She’s not the only one.       During Jessica’s interview, I was brought back to the very moments and techniques of the conscious and forceful manipulation of my “fiance”…because I was on the receiving end of her brainwashing which manifested itself in increasing physical abuse. (This was very serious and very real- Jessica’s intention was to relentlessly drive us apart and she litterally made a nightmare come to life) I continue to defend Melissa as I don’t believe she had a real understanding of what was happening. (Honey, I’ve only wanted to forgive you) and as always, Jessica mentions her over encompassing and twisted version of the word “abuse” which she seems to blanket over every relationship as another tool in her arsenal to manipulate the outcome to her own wishes: and that of course was the destruction of our relationship,  as is well defined in my film. Not only does Jessica continually reinforce my position that she did a horrible thing, but in revealing her conscious manipulation reveals a huge betrayal of those she hurt including Melissa…and obviously me. But that is only the beginning of a very long and complex story where they of course eventually teamed up in Europe to bring this “abuse” and her exploitation to a whole new level. They? Hurting us was indeed an international effort. (See other stories on this site – Jessica Schab / EOF )  I had not spoken to Melissa in over 4 years. I had only seen her Facebook page once in all that time and that was almost 2 years ago. 99.9% of the time … Continue reading

Chasing Rainfall

March, 2016   Hi my name is Steven Sohlstrom and I writing this to address a group (identity of which is not known to me) that took interest in the ongoing saga between myself and the end of fear organization. Apparently, a debate was sparked by the film which I made to expose what Jessica and Diego did to Melissa and I. A healthy debate is always a good thing when arriving at an objective opinion when sorting out the truth. As a person with a journalism and news background, I both respect and encourage such debate. I am unaware of the identity of this group and blind to any ongoing discussion. I can be contacted directly. I stand behind the film I made. Unfortunately, the rebuttal to my film is not a private apology by the eof, or acceptance of accountability, but a very public smear campaign. Going beyond that, lives are being hurt, reputations damaged, and finances obliterated in the continuing “puppetry” that continues to distract from an ever expanding crime of exploitation. My wish to the sympathisers of the EOF is to demand that it stop. My film is real, I stand behind it and I also stand against the continuing victimization of Melissa who will be fortunate if she even has enough money left to find her way back to the United States, or ever even to get word that she is still loved and supported back home. The most important factor is always Melissa’s safety. In the midst of this, I am thankful for the great amount of empathy expressed for our story, as well as the public affirmation that the eof has a definite pattern in the human wreckage they leave behind. I know this from close insiders and even Jessica’s ex. However, I am also concerned that in many instances, the smear campaign deflects from the very simple fact that our story is real, and can never be excused by a campaign to “embarrass” the victims involved. Melissa and I were very greatly effected by the trauma of physical and emotional abuse that was imposed on us by Jessica and Diego. I have volunteered a lot of very personal and painful information which the public was never entitled to know. I have stated that the events which have harmed me not only happened well after the EOF assumed full and direct control of Melissa’s life, but that each instance was directly related to specific and vicious attacks that were made to deflect my efforts to empower her safe return. It has been a very ugly and costly battle. It has been fought in the name of unconditional love and human value. The insidious accusations they made in an effort to silence me were completely dismissed in the court of law, and I emerged an advocate for victims of domestic abuse. My deliberate mischaracterization by the EOF is incredibly hypocritical and shameful in a world where victims of domestic violence are very real and the … Continue reading

Approaching Storm Over St.Cloud

As seen on www.WJON.com. The sky was an intriguing blend of calm air and sunshine on the East side of this small approaching storm today, so I knew it would be a great opportunity to send the plane up hoping to catch a new aerial weather image. Although expecting turbulent downdrafts at any moment to bring my flight to an end, suprisingly, I was able to continue flying in relatively calm skies until only moments before the storm arrived. (North Jr. High is in the center-left foreground) Yes, I fight crime and fly.Why doesn’t Steven more readily go on the defensive to address some of the defamation more aggressively? If you follow the dynamics of the story, compare it to a surgeon trying to remove a tumor from a human heart. She is being used as a weapon and human shield. Steven is doing his best to defend Melissa and build her self esteem and empowerment in the midst of these extraordinary circumstances. I wouldn’t be speaking about any of our private business if the eof hadn’t made the public attacks. The violence issue is not a he said-she said at all. There is plenty of video evidence to prove it. I documented it for my own legal protection. Revealing some of the what I’m hiding to protect her (including her identity) would be utterly devestating to her. Basicly, she’d experience what the eof has done to me which I wouldn’t wish on anyone. Keep in mind, she is also a victim and not to blame. It takes two to fight. Even when we were together when things suddenly became highly unusual after months of harmony, I refused to fight with her. Not even her parents could understand what was wrong. It’s not like she was able to openly express it to me. We never had anything to fight about that was evident to me, the conflict stemmed from her secret world with Jessica and Diego where their predatory opportunity was very easy to see. Is she free now? Think about it. Their motives are plainly on the table. This is where it is so blatently clear that Jessica has no concern for Melissa’s well being because she feels that assigning blame to someone other than herself gets her off the hook. I hope this abuse of Melissa is as plain for the public to see. As stated in the film they were relentless about this, even though neither of us were to blame for anything…and they knew I was safeguarding Melissa’s well being at her own direction. Jessica’s promise for the $2,500 was to heal her, not create a festering scar of selfish opportunism. Now, with the truth coming out, Jessica is toast…and I would suggest not being within arm’s reach of Melissa WHEN she figures everything out. I think we both agree that she is a very intelligent woman. That is the point of her isolaton and control isn’t it: to prevent her from finding knowlege beyind the … Continue reading

On-Set With Elizabeth Allen, Director of “Ramona And Beezus”

  Steven’s Facebook Hoversled Page +   In April, 2009, I boarded an Alaska Airlines jet with a strange looking package bound in holiday wrap. It was extremely fragile, and a large, odd shape that would not fit well in the overhead compartment…”How is this going to work”, I wondered? I need to get this package with me to Vancouver, BC. The solution to getting my unusual bundle on the plane was to ask to put it in the forward closet of the aircraft, and away we flew.        My first stop was Seattle, where the bundle was carefully unwrapped and the contents assembled with dozens of smaller parts. The item was actually a small airplane: the Mynah Bird. It was an RC photo aircraft with a forward looking HD view, and it was enroute to the set of Elizabeth Allen’s latest theatrical feature; Ramona and Beezus with the mission of grabbing some aerial video and background plates for a special effects sequence for the movie. I had spent the last week designing and building the airplane and equiping it with an expensive new camera. The mission wasn’t an official part of the studio production, but an experiment, and an opportunity to do something completely amazing and maybe even historic.        The prospect of building an airplane to get shots for a movie was not something that happened overnight. I have had the opportunity to know Elizabeth Allen since her years as a film student at USC Cinema, where I assisted her on a handful of student productions. It was a completely fortunate event for me to meet and get to know Liz, because she was an extremely ambitious and visionary student with a lot of already well established mentors. I was just a guy from Minnesota with a lot of free time and aspirations to work in film as well, so we made a good team in the moment. After my stay, I returned to Minnesota to work and save money for what I hoped would be my eventual return to Los Angeles.          Even after returning to Minnesota, I ventured back to L.A. several times to help Liz on a couple of movies, and at times just to catch up. Liz was always such a gracious host. On my next return trip, I worked on her first 35mm short film where I experienced the thrill of learning how to load a Panavision film magazine from one of the camera assistants. Being on-set is great, but I think it was the work leading up to production that is so interesting to be a part of; driving around Hollywood with Liz to do important things like pick up the film “short ends” (leftover film rolls from studio productions), tech scouting locations and meeting important people on the crew like the Director of Photography, etc. But it seemed like Liz always had important people around her, experienced talent that already had professional movie credits, and casts that included real stars and people that we all recognize from film and television.          The … Continue reading
