Funeral for Harlem senior to be held Saturday


The funeral for a Harlem High School senior killed in a vehicle wreck earlier this week will be Saturday.


Jonathan Hartman’s funeral starts at noon at Kiokee Baptist Church, 2520 Ray Owens Road, Appling. Visitation is scheduled for 6-8 p.m. today at the church.

Hartman, a student-athlete at Harlem, died Tuesday after his Toyota 4Runner ran off Scotts Ferry Road, causing the 18-year-old to over-correct and flip the SUV several times before it hit a tree.

Hartman, the son of Kiokee Baptist Pastor Steve Hartman, was expected to graduate from high school May 19. Classmates and faculty honored Hartman on Wednesday by wearing blue and orange, the colors of his favorite college team, the University of Florida Gators.

Players and coaches on Harlem’s football, basketball and tennis teams will serve as honorary pallbearers. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Kiokee Baptist Church Benevolence Fund or the Chron’s and Colitis Foundation of America.
