Lake City Greenways memorial gathering for Jesse Gurnett

Friends:

On March 29, lifelong Lake City resident Jesse Gurnett was killed in the crosswalk at Lake City Way and NE 127th by a speeding driver, a tragedy that simply should never have occurred. Had the driver been obeying the posted speed limit, Jesse might have survived the collision–or the driver might have avoided hitting him altogether.

Here in Lake City, we live every day with the peril of having a state highway as our Main Street. Many improvements have been made on LCW, but more are needed if we want people walking to have the chance they deserve to get from here to there without injury.

On Saturday, June 22, Jesse’s family and friends will join Lake City Greenways in celebrating  Jesse’s life and honoring his memory with a gathering at the Lake City Mini Park and the intersection where Jesse lost his life. Our celebration will be followed by a meeting between community members and City officials to discuss actual, effective actions that can be taken to improve the intersection and reduce speed in the commercial core of Lake City.

Please join your neighbors and Jesse’s people for this important opportunity to honor Jesse and create a legacy of greater safety for our community. Mark your calendars for 10:00 a.m. to Noon on June 22 and look for more details to come.

Thank you–

Janine and Monica
