SHREVEPORT-BOSSIER CITY, La. (KSLA) - The ArkLaTex said its final farewell to a Bossier Parish first responder who was killed during an on-duty accident just two weeks ago.
South Bossier Fire District 2′s Jessie Henry, 28, was working on a fire truck tire when the tire exploded.
The viewing began at 9 a.m. Wednesday, Dec. 29 at Hirsch Memorial Coliseum in Shreveport. Henry’s celebration of life service followed at 11 a.m.
Henry’s body was then taken in a procession to the burial site.
