TUCSON- A celebration of life was held Tuesday night for a Pima Community College football player who was killed last week in a car accident.
The driver, Jordan Waddell, was killed and a University of Arizona player was seriously injured in a two-vehicle crash on the West Side on Sept. 28. It happened near Greasewood and Anklam Roads.
Tuesday night, school officials, friends and family gathered at the Pima Community College West Campus for a celebration of life.
PCC head football coach, Jim Monaco, announced there will be a $1,000 scholarship in Waddell’s name.
“I can tell you, we are less of a community with him not in it, and to tell you truthfully, he was loved here,” said Monaco.
His friend, Breyonn Shaw, said she will miss Waddell’s smile.
“He was just, you know, so happy he always wanted to make someone smile. Whenever you were with him you always had a smile, you were always joking,” said Shaw. “He was just a loving person. You just had a good vibe when you were around him. You felt safe.”
