I am reposting this here thanks to Robin’s suggestion. Jayson was an active part of this community and the man behind the phrase “Get it”, that is tattooed on a few IAM members. His death was such an untimely waste and his killer, although accidental, was a habitual offender and shouldn’t get off with such a small penalty.
As some of you probably know, April 17, 2010 would’ve been Jayson Kilroy’s 30th birthday. He and his friend, Edgar Juarez, were killed August 6, 2008 by Barbara Thomas. She was charged with 2 counts of Vehicular Homicide, Driving Under the Influence of Drugs, Driving with a Restricted License (for prior DUIs), and she was not wearing her glasses when she struck & killed them.
She was sentenced to 3 years in jail. Three years for two lives. As if that isn’t bad enough, she has a parole hearing May 1,2010. If she is granted parole, she could be released as early as July 26, 2010. If that is the case, she will have served just over 1 year in jail for killing Jayson and Edgar. If you can, please email Tim Hand, head of the Colorado Department of Corrections Parole Board to oppose her release:
