JHS NEWS

Dear Jefferson High School Community,

This has been an unimaginably hard day for us all as we process the tragic accident that took the life of Hunter Muse last night. We are shocked and saddened at his passing, and are sending our love and support to Dylan Mills as he begins the recovery process.
Thank you to the friends, alumni, employees, and students at Jefferson High School who have been there in this time of loss. And a special thank you to our partners in law enforcement for everything they do. This is the worst news a school or parent can receive, but we will remember Hunter for the amazing young man that he was, and continue to support Dylan in his healing.
