Jefferson "Jeff" Taylor

I'm pretty sure it would be safe to say you have read about the tornado that destroyed a good deal of Joplin, Missouri. You might not have heard about Jefferson "Jeff" Taylor. He didn't live in Joplin and he wasn't there when the tornado hit. He was a Riverside, Missouri Police Officer that volunteered to go to Joplin and help the tornado victims.He was struck by lightning while helping with rescues.(Continue Reading) If there is a list of Missouri's heroes somewhere I feel Jefferson "Jeff" Taylor's name should be added to that list.

Rest In Peace Mr.Taylor.

Thanks go to;
