Services Held For Jerry Brown Jr. Of The Cowboys

David Kohl-USA TODAY Sports

The memorial service for Dallas Cowboys practice squad member Jerry Brown Jr. was held on Tuesday.

Jerry Brown, Jr, a player with a short tenure but an enormous impact on the Dallas Cowboys was memorialized in a private ceremony on Tuesday. Josh Brent, who was driving the car he was fatally injured in, and who has been charged in his death, was there at the personal invitation of Brown's family.

Quarterback Tony Romo, owner Jerry Jones and other players, executives and staff members arrived at the service on a sunny but chilly afternoon at Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship in Dallas. Brent arrived earlier than most in a van with several other people and hugged an unidentified woman before walking into the building.

The cover of the program for the service was in itself a moving tribute to Brown.

The team made a presentation to Brown's mother, Stacey Jackson, who continues to display remarkable grace during her mourning.

The Cowboys presented Jackson with the game ball of the Cowboys' emotional 20-19 win over the Bengals on Sunday, along with a customary hard-hat award that they give out after victories to the players of the game.

Jackson courageously spoke to the team and encouraged the players and coaches to keep supporting Brent, who faces intoxication manslaughter charges.

There is likely to be more coming on the accident as authorities look into things.

Comedian Shawn Wayans was at the club last Friday night, and a club promoter tweeted that a dozen unnamed Cowboys players were there ordering numerous bottles of a popular champagne.

The Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission is investigating the accident, and the club Brent and Brown left from before the accident, Privae Dallas, could face charges if it is proven they continued to sell alcohol to intoxicated patrons.
