“Now more than ever, we ask for all of you to embrace the Raynor family and the Daytona Beach Police Department in your hearts during this devastating time and pray that God will give us all the strength to persevere through this senseless tragedy,” says DBPD Police Chief Jakari Young. “Jason’s sacrifice will never be forgotten.”
On behalf of the family, Chief Young thanks everyone who has shown their love and support. He is now asking for the public – including members of the media – to respect their desire for privacy while they grieve for their loved one.
