LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Law enforcement officers from across the country are in Lubbock to honor the service of fallen DPS Trooper Jonathan McDonald.
McDonald, 28, died Monday night in a crash just south of Post. Investigators say he lost control of his vehicle while responding to an accident. Now, family, friends and fellow officers are here to lay him to rest.
Officers from as far away as New York are flying into Lubbock for Friday's memorial service. Funeral services will be held at the First Baptist Church in Downtown Lubbock at 2 p.m. followed by the procession at 3 p.m.
The procession will start at the First Baptist Church, right off Broadway, and heading toward University and will then continue from University to 19th Street then west toward Frankford. The procession will end with services at Resthaven Cemetery. Drivers need to be cautious around the area of 19th and Frankford because of road construction.
A visitation will be held from 6 p.m. until 8 p.m. tonight at Resthaven Funeral Home. Several memorial funds have also been created to benefit his wife and six-month-old daughter. You can make donations to a scholarship fund established for Kacyn Shae McDonald at the Citizens Bank at 210 North Broadway in Post. Donations can also be made to the 100 Club of Houston Survivor Fund.
