Friends and family of 2014 Mendota High School graduate Jackie Martinez will gather the next two days to say goodbye.

Visitation is happening Thursday with a service Friday at Holy Cross Church in Mendota for Martinez who died Sunday morning after a hit and run near Bureau Junction. Bureau County Sheriff Jim Reed says they continue to follow leads into who hit Martinez and three other teens as they walked down a private lane. He says it’s not in their best interest to release some information they have collected to the public.

The 19-year-old worked at Monterrey Mushrooms. In high school, she played soccer for Mendota.

Service information for Jackie Martinez can be heard during Classic Hits 103.9 WLPO’s In Memoriam.
