Legacy of JR Stewart
Ray “JR” Stewart tragically passed away at age 61 on November 27, 2017. The retired policeman was riding his motorcycle when he was fatally hit by a stolen vehicle fleeing the police during a high speed chase. Mr. Stewart was loved and respected within his community and served as a Las Cruces police officer for 35 years. He was an involved member of various police, veteran and church organizations where he regularly volunteered his time to serve his community. He is survived by his wife, daughter, grandchildren, siblings and in-laws, mother, nephews and nieces, godchildren, extended family and many dear friends.
Mr. Stewart was known as a “friend of all”. According to a 2017 statement from the Las Cruces Police Department published in the Las Cruces Soleil News, “JR was probably the most loved and respected officer our community has known. He served his country and his community with honor and devoted much of his time to organizations close to his heart. Shortly after his death, his friends and family came together to create a foundation to honor and continue his good work and continue the efforts of the causes dear to him.
Second annual golf tournament
On Friday September 10, 2021, the Foundation will hold the 2nd annual golf tournament To Sonoma Ranch Golf Course in Las Cruces, New Mexico. Registrations are open for the morning and afternoon departure times. The day will include fun, friends, food and prizes. Corporate sponsorships are also available. Funds raised will be directed to the Foundation’s efforts to support causes close to Mr. Stewart’s heart, including Shop with 141 (which addresses poor police funding in the area by taking law enforcement children purchase supplies for back to school, holidays, etc.), NMSU scholarships for law enforcement children, and a sponsorship program for sending young officers to Washington, DC to attend National Law Enforcement Memorial Week services. The funds will also support the JR Stewart “Buckle up” campaign, a car seat initiative supported by the organization.
Mr. Stewart was an advocate for law enforcement and their families. The continued and growing need for community law enforcement support makes this a timely and effective opportunity for individuals and businesses. Those who would like to support the fund without attending the tournament are invited to donate online.
Mr. Allen served with Mr. Stewart when the two were both active police officers and considered Mr. Stewart a good friend. Mr. Allen will be at the next golf tournament and would love to see you there. he shared, âI can’t wait to see old friends again and I am grateful to FFAM360 for helping to support this cause. It’s personal to me, but beyond that, it’s important to play an active role in supporting our communities and the officers who work to keep them safe. We hope others will join us and make a difference.
