He was a U.S. Army Veteran Sergeant who completed three tours in Iraq during his nine years of service.
He was attending American National University. And was scheduled to graduate from the surgical program on June 24, 2017.
He was traveling home on his motorcycle, after clinicals to his loving family; when he was hit by an SUV making an illegal left turn.
JD is survived by his two children, ages 4 & 6, his wife Sandy, his sister Liz; and the rest of his family and friends.
Losing such an amazing person as JD, June 12th, 2017 will be the day that changes everyones lives forever.
JD always gave to others, even when he barely had anything of his own. He would give you the shirt off his back if you needed it. He never needed much, because he always valued family and friends above anything else!
He had no life insurance. Please share and donate what you can. Everything helps regardless if it's $1, $5, or $10!
