A flag laying ceremony and memorial service will be held for Los Angeles County firefighter Jon Flagler, who died from injuries he suffered while battling a single-story house fire in Rancho Palos Verdes on January 6.

Flagler was 47 years old. He is survived by his wife, Jenny, and two sons.

The 21-year firefighting veteran served 19 years with the Vernon Fire Department before transitioning to the County of Los Angeles Fire Department in October 2020.

Flagler was a San Clemente resident with ties to Canyon Lake. His wife was born and raised in Canyon Lake, the place where her parents, Cindy and Dwight Johnson, still reside.

“Jenny and Jon made an absolutely beautiful couple and created such a beautiful life and family together,” Jenny’s cousin, Leah Anderson, said. “Jon had a smile that would light up the room. He was such a hands-on dad and a loving and devoted husband to my beautiful cousin. He left a hole in our hearts, but he will never be forgotten. The world is going to be a different place without him in it.”

A private flag laying ceremony will be held on Thursday, January 20, at 10 a.m. at Los Angeles County Fire Department Station 13, 3375 Fruitland Ave., Vernon.

A public memorial service will be held on Friday, January 21, at 10 a.m. at Cottonwood Church, 4505, Katella Ave., Los Alamitos. The memorial service will be streamed live on the department’s Facebook page, www.facebook.com/LACoFD, for those who cannot attend.
