Kennewick Dairy Queen Raising Funds For Recently Deceased Cook

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash.- After a local man passes away from health complications brought on by lupus, his friends from where he worked are trying to help his family pay for funeral costs.

Jakob Campbell was a cook at the Dairy Queen in Kennewick off of 395. On Wednesday his coworkers will have two events to raise funds for his family. From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. they will be washing cars in their parking lot and taking donations. Then from 5-7 p.m. all of the money from food purchased at the restaurant will go towards the funeral costs.

"He was always the one person on the shift that would just make you laugh and giggle and he would always be telling jokes and making sure everybody was having a good time," said Hayley Dawson, Campbell's friend and coworker.

"Yeah he would do anything for anyone and he hardly ever got mad. If he was mad, there was a good reason he was mad," explained Charlie Giles, his friend and manager.

Campbell's friends say he was known for wearing his tie-dye shirt. His family will be selling shirts that they have made on Wednesday at the Dairy Queen.
