Vail mourns recent losses, including young girl

Posted: Updated:

TUCSON – The community of Vail is mourning a series of losses this year.

Two Vail School District families lost homes in the Mulberry Fire.

Six district students died this school year. The most recent death was a 7th-grade student at Old Vail Middle School, Jayden Glomb.

On May 11 her body was found off May Ann Cleveland Way. The cause of death is under investigation, but police are calling it suspicious.

Thursday night the school district and faith leaders organized a vigil at Cienega High School.

A large group of Jayden’s classmates walked from Old Vail Middle School to the vigil.

Jasmin Grewe said school staff members have helped her deal with the loss of her friend.

“We always talked over Snapchat,” she said, “and she was always super-energetic. And she was always bouncing around and always had a smile on her face.”
