Today the House adopted HJR 25 to designate West Delmar Avenue in Godfrey as it travels between Pierce Lane and Valhalla Cemetery as “The Captain Jake Ringering Memorial Highway”.
According to Rep. Elik, “Captain Jake Ringering was a dedicated public servant. He impacted the lives of many who knew him as a friend, family member, and while serving in the line of duty. Countless individuals are alive today as a result of the sacrifice and courage of Captain Ringering. It is highly fitting for the General Assembly to honor Captain Jake Ringering with a memorial highway.”
