Memorial for student killed in Lincoln car crash
ROCKLIN, Calif.,- William Jessup University Psychology major, Justin Woodard was killed in a fatal car accident early Thanksgiving morning at the intersection of Fiddyment and Moore roads in Lincoln. A memorial service will be held at William Jessup University on Friday, December 4 beginning at 9:30 a.m.
The 26 year old was well known on the Rocklin campus where he resided. Not only was he a student at the University but also was employed with the 71 year old institution as a security guard. In the past, Woodard served as Resident Assistant, worked in the cafeteria and also in the facilities department.
“We extend our deepest sympathies and condolences to Justin’s family, friends and colleagues,” said Jim Jessup, Director of Church Relations at the University. “We know he is in a better place.”
Last summer, Woodard went on a WJU lead mission trip to Cambodia, partnering with Agape International Missions (AIM). Woodard was his mother Donnas’ only child.
Grief counseling services have been made available to students at the close knit campus community.
Additional activities on campus to celebrate Woodard’s life included an offering at yesterday’s chapel service that will be presented to his family, a memory area in the University’s Prayer Chapel and a Bonfire held last Tuesday night to reflect on his life.
Pastor Mark Dahlin of Living Hope Christian Church in Roseville will preside over the memorial. The family is requesting that donations can be made to the William Jessup University Fund, Agape International Missions and Teen Challenge in Woodard’s memory.
