De Soto students organize candlelight vigil for classmate killed in motorcycle accident

June 14, 2011


Students at De Soto High School have organized a candlelight vigil for their classmate who was killed in motorcycle crash late Monday afternoon.

Friends and family will gather to remember Bryan Jessip at 9 p.m. Tuesday in the rear parking lot at the high school.

Principal Dave Morford described Jessip as "a nice, quiet young man who flew a bit under the radar."

"Bryan was very well-liked by the staff and our school community. Our [the school's] emphasis now is doing what we can to help his family. Our thoughts and prayers go out to them," he said.

I will never forget the moment I first heard the news that one of my high school classmates had died. Sadly, he was only the first of many.

My sympathies.
