Botham Jean’s parents to be featured in PSA during Super Bowl


‘What has happened to Botham should not happen to another family,” Allison Jean said in a newly released video from the NFL.

The Jean family is featured in two-minute public service announcement scheduled to air during the Super Bowl.

“The world has lost a great man,” Allison Jean said. “He was destined for greatness.”

According to The Dallas Morning News, the family’s attorney, Lee Merritt, said, “It’s important for them, for people to understand that although he was killed, his legacy lives on.”

In an article about the video, Merritt goes on to say, “He continues to influence the world. … The impact that he made on people in his 26 years continues to have ripple effects today.”

Botham Jean, a graduate of Harding University in Searcy, Ark., was fatally shot in his own apartment in September 2018 by off-duty Dallas police officer Amber Guyger. The later-fired officer was convicted of murder last fall and sentenced to 10 years in prison.
