J.L. Long staff member Raquel Flores-Lopez was hit and killed by a speeding car Tuesday that lost control at Hunnicut Road and Everglade Road in Buckner Terrace.

The vehicle hit Flores-Lopez while she was outside in her front yard.

She is survived by her husband and four children.

Flores-Lopez was a data controller at J.L. Long. The Long community started a fundraiser in her honor.

“Raquel’s laughter and presence will be greatly missed,” according to the fund. “We are forever grateful for her service to the J.L. Long / Woodrow families, staff and community.”

More than $6,000 has been collected toward the $7,5000 goal.
