For those who want to help out:

The American Jewish Committee has set up a memorial fund to help the family of Officer Stephen T. Jones, who was killed on Wednesday at the US Holocaust Memorial Museum. According to the article linked to below, there will be a website for donations soon, but for those who wish to donate immediately, checks made out to the American Jewish Committee, with "Holocaust Museum Memorial Fund" in the memo line, should be sent to:

American Jewish Committee, Washington Chapter

According to the report, one hundred percent of the contribution will go to the Johns family.

Johns left behind an eleven-year-old son.
