A fundraiser was held Saturday, Feb. 29 at Jen’s Sweet Treats in Cudahy in honor of Darrin “Superman” Jones, the Milwaukee firefighter who passed away in his sleep on Feb. 1, just three months before he planned to retire. Jones’ passing was considered a line of duty death.
“They put their lives on the line every time they, you know, come to work, and Superman was no different,” said Jennifer Clark, owner of Jen’s Sweet Treats.
One-hundred percent of proceeds received on Saturday were donated to the wife and three children of the 52-year-old firefighter who served for 29 years.
Jones’ passing likely stemmed from health issues or chemicals Jones was exposed to while on the job.
