Help fulfill a dying soldier’s last wish

A Joint Base Elmenforf-Richardson soldier named Jennifer was recently diagnosed with serious, inoperable stomach cancer.

The Army has moved her out of state to be close to family during her final hours.

Now, Anchorage’s House of Harley-Davidson is helping fulfill one of her last wishes.

On Saturday, September 27 at 1 p.m. House of Harley-Davidson will auction off Jennifer’s 1996 Harley Davidson 883 Sportster Hugger.

The starting bid is $2,500 and the money raised will be donated to Jennifer’s favorite charity, the Alaska SPCA.

“This is a way to continue on her memory and do something for her that will be a memorial to her,” said Dia Matteson, owner of House of Harley-Davidson.

The auction will be held at House of Harley-Davidson at 4334 Spenard Road in Anchorage.
