Senior Airman Katrina M. Jackson, patrolman with the 673d Security Forces Squadron, was pronounced dead Feb. 15.

The 22 year-old native of Universal City, Texas, died from injuries sustained from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound while on JBER.

The exact circumstances surrounding her death are being investigated by the Air Force Office of Special Investigations.

Jackson joined the Air Force in Sept. 2010. She attended basic and technical training at Lackland Air Force Base, San Antonio, Texas, and arrived at JBER in May 2011. Jackson’s awards include Meritorious Unit Award, Air Force Outstanding Unit Award and Air Force Good Conduct Medal.

A memorial service was scheduled last week in Chapel 1 on JBER-Elmendorf.
