Brothers and Sisters,
It is with great sadness that I inform you of the Line of Duty Death of Engineer Jami Lusher of Pekin, Local 524. Brother Lusher passed away Monday, October 17th from colon cancer. Brother Lusher was 49 years old. He is survived by his wife and two children.
By orders of AFFI President Chuck Sullivan, the AFFI Honor Guard is activated.
Although this is an activation, the family has asked that the services be of a more private nature, with participation being limited to local departments and first responders. For this reason, we are asking that only 3rd District membersof the AFFI Honor Guard attend.
Brother Lusher’s services are as follows:
Visitation: Friday, October 21st, 2022, from 1600hrs to 1900hrs at Henderson Funeral Home- 2131 Velde Dr., Pekin, IL 61554. There will be a uniformed personnel walk through at 1800hrs. 3rd District Honor Guard members should arrive no later than 1700hrs.
Funeral: Saturday, October 22nd, 2022, at 1300hrs at Henderson Funeral Home- 2131 Velde Dr., Pekin, IL 61554. The family has asked that the service be limited to local surrounding departments.
Please do whatever you can to attend as requested and honor the family’s wishes. Make sure you have a plain black mask. I don’t know if there will be any restrictions in place, but everyone should be prepared. I know, as always, you will all do Whatever It Takes to Honor, Cherish, Remember, and Salute Brother Lusher, his family, and his Local.
Jay Coburn, Commander
