Pavers For Jeff Kuss Memorial Available

Orders are open and due by Feb. 16 for pavers for the Capt. Jeff Kuss Memorial in Smyrna.

SMYRNA, TN — Work continues on Smyrna’s memorial to Capt. Jeff Kuss, the Blue Angels pilot who died in a crash during a rehearsal flight before a performance in 2016.

Smyrna is now taking orders for pavers that will surround and help fund the million-dollar memorial, which includes an F/A-18 Hornet.

“There’s still time to purchase a memorial paver, but if you want your paver to be included at the Opening Ceremony Ribbon Cutting, our contractors need your order by Friday, February 16th. The paver samples shown below are the 4″ x 8″, and the 12″ x 12″. 4 x 8 are $100 each. 12 x 12 are $1000 each. 8″ x 8″ are available for $500 each,” the town said in a press release.

Sponsorships for planters and benches are also being accepted by phone at 615-267-5004.

Kuss, a native of Durango, Colo., joined the Blue Angels in 2014. A Marine pilot, he had done tours in Afghanistan before joining the Blue Angels. The Navy ruled the crash was caused by pilot error.
