DANSVILLE – The artwork of the airman who passed away in Jordan on Tuesday has adorned the wall of the school office since she was a student there.
Alexandria Gleason-Jordan’s mixed-media piece ‘Chuck’s’ has been on display in the school’s main office since 2009, her senior year. She had aspired to become an art teacher after concluding her military career.
“In Dansville we honor all service members in life and in death,” posted Dansville Central Schools. “Alex took the military oath and pledged her life to defend us and the USA. We feel her loss acutely because Alex was such a bright light and she is one of our own. We are here to support her family and friends now and always. Alex will remain in our hearts, our prayers and our collective consciousness in perpetuity.”
Dansville Central Schools posted their condolences for the family of airman Alexandria Gleason-Morrow to their Facebook page. Gleason-Morrow was killed in a non-combat operation on the line of duty in Jordan.
Alex is remembered by classmates as ‘super-positive, loved by all and a person who would help anyone.’ She was highly regarded by teachers who recall Alex as a bright, creative and friendly student who had tremendous potential to pursue any interest and career.
She was a high achiever who loved art and who established strong relationships with her teachers and classmates.
A new flag flies in front of the school at half staff ‘in honor of Alex and her indelible spirit.’
