Losing a member of the thin line community is always heartbreaking. These are men and women of the highest caliber who CHOOSE to place themselves in harms way. They do this so that others will be safe.
Diana Jones, from Cresson Texas was lost in the line of duty on August 21, 2020:
Jones was fighting the August Complex fire northwest of Sacramento on Monday when she died, according to the U.S. Forest Service. Officials from the agency said in a news release Tuesday she and two other firefighters were involved in a “vehicle accident,” though they didn’t announce details of the crash. Becker only knows, through those who have spoken to Shelly, there was some type of sudden and unexpected incident.Source: https://www.ems1.com/line-of-duty-death/articles/texas-ff-emt-killed-fighting-calif-wildfires-had-heart-of-service-friends-family-say-2lYmkkP7URQeni3K/
Diana was an especially tough individual. She retired from hairdressing and went through the firefighter training at 58 years old… this is a testament to the caliber of men and women holding the thin lines.
Diana was known for her servant spirit, calm demeanor and utmost desire to help those in need. The world will miss her… WE will miss her.
Rest in peace Diana, we will take it from here.
