Chiefs Kicker Harrison Butker Sends Jersey to Family of Shooting Victim

Kansas City Chiefs kicker Harrison Butker has sent a white No. 7 jersey to the family of Lisa Lopez-Galvan, a victim of the recent Kansas City parade shooting. Lopez-Galvan, a devoted fan of Butker, was tragically killed during the incident while wearing his jersey. Following a social media post by a relative seeking a white Butker jersey for Lopez-Galvan’s funeral, the kicker personally ensured that the family received one.

A representative for Butker confirmed that the jersey reached Lopez-Galvan’s family, expressing the kicker’s heartfelt condolences. Butker, along with his wife Isabelle, expressed their deep sorrow over the senseless act of violence that claimed Lopez-Galvan’s life. He emphasized the need for justice to be served and offered prayers for the healing of the family and the repose of Lisa’s soul.

The request for the jersey was initially made by Lopez-Galvan’s husband, who wanted his wife to be laid to rest wearing her favorite player’s jersey. A photo of Lopez-Galvan proudly wearing the jersey at the parade was later shared by a family member on social media.

The tragic incident has prompted an outpouring of support for Lopez-Galvan’s family. A GoFundMe campaign was set up to assist them, with a goal of $75,000. However, the campaign has far surpassed expectations, raising over $378,000 as of Wednesday morning. Notably, singer Taylor Swift, who is dating Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce, donated $100,000 to the cause. Kelce himself donated $100,000 to support two young sisters who were injured in the shooting.
