About Jonathan & Jenna Grassbaugh

CPT Jonathan D. Grassbaugh, an Army Armor Officer serving with the 82nd Airborne Division, was killed in Zaganiyah, Iraq on April 7, 2007 by a roadside bomb while on his second deployment to Iraq in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom. His personal motto was non sibi, which means “not for oneself.” He believed with all of his heart grassbaugh-twoin selfless service and in reaching out to help those less fortunate.

His legacy will carry on in perpetuity thanks to his wife, CPT Jenna C. Grassbaugh, 2014 alumna of Moritz College of Law and founder of the Captain Jonathan D. Grassbaugh Veterans Project.
