Detroit, MI (PRWEB) September 24, 2013
On Saturday, September 14th, during the motorcycle event, “Bikes on the Bricks” held in Flint, Michigan, Rodney Jones, 49, a Detroit Police Officer of 28 years, collapsed during a rider skills competition.
“On behalf of the motorcycle community, I extend condolences to Rodney Jones’ family,” says Motorcycle Accident Lawyer Jason Waechter. “It is truly a loss for city of Detroit and motorcyclists everywhere."
The Detroit News reported on September 15th, Officer Mike Pacteles who worked with Jones said “I looked up to Rodney; he was a true leader and always had an answer. He was never afraid to say what was on his mind. (The unit) will never be the same.”
According to MLive on September 15th, while practicing for a police training seminar around 4 p.m., Jones suddenly stopped his motorcycle and fell to the ground. Genesee County paramedics were on the scene immediately and started treatment. He was transported to Hurley Medical Center where he died of an apparent medical condition.
In the same article, his wife Mone Jones said “He was a great, humble, caring police officer and guy,” who attended the tribute alongside son Kalon. “He loved everyone, he was a helper. He would want anyone to call him for help.
Officers gathered for Sunday’s events in Flint wore black bands across their badges, in honor of Jones’s passing. Mone said “He loved the guys, his fellow officers, but Jones served for another purpose as well. He loved just trying to make a difference in the community, in law enforcement,” she said. “He believed in doing the right thing.”
Funeral arrangements were held over the weekend and on Monday, September 23rd.
