Legislation to name a post office after slain San Diego Police Officer Jonathan “J.D.” De Guzman is on its way to President Obama for signature.
The bill championed by Rep. Susan Davis passed the Senate on Friday and is expected to be signed by the President.
“The memory of Officer Jonathan De Guzman will live on,” said Davis.“Generations will know the sacrifice he made and that he dedicated his life to protecting and serving the San Diego community he loved. This is a tribute to him and all our law enforcement officers who make the safety of San Diegans their top priority.”
Once signed by the President, the post office on Kuhn Drive in Chula Vista, where De Guzman lived, will be designated as the “Jonathan ‘J.D.’ De Guzman Post Office Building.”
A 16-year veteran, De Guzman was shot multiple times on July 28 during a routine police stop. He is survived by his wife and two children.
