Newberry truly is in mourning over the loss of Mike Jago II.
I am not going to post the news stories or photos of the accident scene. You can do searches for various U.P. newspapers and TV stations that have photos. It isn’t that I think it is wrong to have those photos, but I just don’t want to put reminders here of how tragic this accident is. I have seen the photos and I don't want to see them again.
The snowmobiling community is really “pulling together” for Undersheriff Jago and his family loss. The community of Newberry is pulling together as well. When I know if there is a memorial fund to contribute to, I will let you know.
It was stated on the news last night that the two troppers will be “OK”. I put that in quotes because you have to know this is weighing heavy on their hearts and mind too. So, our thoughts and prayers are with them as well.
