Head is buried at Luffman Free Hope Cemetery in Murray County, but his grave is not marked with a headstone. Former co-worker, Susan Stanley and CeeCee Headrick are hoping to change that.
“We are going to have a movie at the Eton Park this Saturday at 7 p.m.,” Stanley said. “Smoky and the Bandit; it was one of Jacky’s favorites. It’s a fundraiser for a fallen officer. Even though he didn’t fall in the line of duty, he was getting ready to go on shift. His car was running, he went back in his house and never came out.”
Stanley admission for the movie is free and there will be hot dog plates sold for $2 and pizza slices for $1. There will also be other snacks sold for donations.
“Local businesses have really stepped up,” Stanley said. “There have too many that have helped to name individually. CeeCee Headrick has held Pampered Chef for the last month with a portion of the proceeds going towards Jacky’s headstone. She is working on this with me.
“Jacky was a great man, a great partner, you couldn’t ask for a better buddy,” Stanley said. She worked with Head at Murray County EMS.
Memorial T-shirts will also be sold for $10 and monetary donations can be made to the Jacky Head Memorial Fund at Comcast Federal Credit Union.
