A Mesquite firefighter who was battling a rare illness was given a heartfelt sendoff. Sunday afternoon saw the funeral for Jody McPherson. 50 miles east of Dallas, in Edgewood, was the location of his funeral service.

Who Is McPherson?

In that town, McPherson was heavily involved in the school’s athletics program. Prior to joining the Mesquite Fire Department in 2006, he also had a position on the board of the Edgewood Independent School District.

Inside Edgewood High School’s gymnasium, a large group of mourners gathered to pay tribute to the firefighter for his selfless dedication to his family, his enthusiasm for his community, and his servant’s heart.

McPherson worked at MFD Fire Station 3 as an engineer and driver. According to a recent report from the department, several students were unsure of how to get to campus on their first day of class, so McPherson assisted them in walking to school. He died of rare disease.

It was recently discovered that McPherson has Creutzfeldt-Jackob disease. The Centers for Disease Control claim that an aberrant protein in the brain is what causes CJD.

Three kids and his wife are his only survivors. McPherson held the age of 47. A GoFundMe page was created to support his family.
