A vigil was held at the Sunken Gardens Wednesday night to honor Jessie McCain, nearly 100 people showed up.

The 21–year–old was killed in a motorcycle accident over the weekend.

A funeral service for  McCain is being held in Lincoln, Friday morning (11), at Christ Place, 1111 Old Cheney Rd.

Then, family plans to bury her in Louisiana, next to McCain's late mother.

To help with costs, the family of Tyler Wilson, Jessie’s boyfriend, who was badly injured in the accident, has set up a page on Go Fund Me: http://www.gofundme.com/bx8vmw

The fund is for funeral and medical costs.

Jessie was a passenger on the motorcycle.

Tyler, who was driving, is still hospitalized, but is expected to pull through.
