Brent Taylor, Mayor of North Ogden, was killed in Afghanistan today. Mayor Taylor was a hero in every sense of the word.  He believed in his community, his country and in selfless service to his fellowman. He truly belonged to all of us in the community, but he ultimately belongs to Jennie and his seven amazing children.  At this time we cannot take away the loss for Jennie and his children but we can ease some of her financial burdens which will be with her for the rest of her life.  Please help us thank Mayor Taylor for giving the ultimate sacrifice to his country. Knowing his family is being taken care of financially will matter to Brent.  Please help us reach our goal, it is a lofty goal, but that is how our Mayor lived his life...setting lofty goals.

WE LOVE this AMAZING FAMILY!

This will bring tears to your eyes. The Utah National Guard showed up at Brent's daughter's school yesterday to support her at her NAL match. There are so many good people in this world that help to lift others when life is hard.

Jennie Taylor, their two oldest sons, and Brent Taylor's parents were there as his remains were returned to Dover Air Force Base in Delaware about 2:30 a.m. MST.

"Brent may have died on Afghan soil, but he died for the success of freedom and democracy in both of our countries," she said in a statement that referred to her husband's final post on Facebook, which urged Americans to exercise their "precious right to vote." Tuesday's press conference was the first time Jennie Taylor has spoken to media since her husband's death.

"It seems only fitting," her statement said, that her husband "has come home to U.S. soil in a flag draped casket on our Election Day."
