Outside of the Cumberland County Department of Public Safety, fallen EMT Jonathian Myers was honored and remembered for what he loved most.
For more than 10 years, he was a valued member of the East Pennsboro EMS. There were brief breaks from time to time, but family member Dan Hackenberger says he always came back.
"He just enjoyed it so much. It was what he liked to do, and what he wanted to do for his life and the community. He enjoyed helping people. That's what got him into being in EMS. He enjoyed helping anyone," Hackenberger said.
Last fall, while doing the very job he loved, Jonathian was exposed to a patient with COVID-19.
"Even though he was double-masked and he had a shield on, and the whole works, it took him over," Hackenberger said.
