The family has identified an East Brook Middle School teacher killed in Thursday’s school bus crash on Interstate 80 in Mount Olive.
Kevin Kennedy, husband of 51-year-old Jennifer Williamson-Kennedy, released the following statement last night:
“My beautiful bride and I have been in total love every day of our lives since the day our eyes met on May 5th, 1994. I am in shock, devastated and totally crushed by today's tragedy to both sides of the Williamson-Kennedy families, the community she taught and the thousands of students and their families she was very proud to serve."
Officials confirmed that a teacher and a female student from East Brook Middle School were among the fatalities in yesterday’s I-80 crash in Mount Olive.
According to authorities, shortly before 10:30 a.m. a school bus carrying students and teachers from East Brook Middle School in Paramus was headed to Waterloo Village when the bus crashed with a dump truck on I-80 West in Mount Olive Township.
The identity of the child killed has not been released.
The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
