‘It’s been a tough week’: Community pays tribute to Waukesha parade victims on Thanksgiving

Dozens stopped at memorials on Thanksgiving Day to honor the victims of the Waukesha Christmas Parade tragedy

In a day to reflect on thanksgiving, in Waukesha, people use the time to honor those who have lost so much. “This is a family to me. It’s a wonderful community, beautiful city,” said Troy Sontag, who moved to Menomonee Falls after living in Waukesha for 20 years. “It’s a shame that something like this has happened to them.” “I just woke up with the urge to do something and come and pray a prayer, grab some flowers and leave them here for the memorial,” said Matthew Holton, who lives in Milwaukee but grew up in Waukesha. He drove to Veteran’s Park to show his respect on Thanksgiving. WISN 12 News saw dozens of people, old and young, place flowers and light candles at the memorial on Thursday and carve out time on this Thanksgiving to honor those they have never met but feel connected to. “Friday afternoon, Waukesha The South band came past our house and rehearsed their songs for the parade, “said Greg Schneider, a Waukesha resident who was at Veteran’s Park on Thursday. “After being out clapping for the kids and watching the video of the kids being hit from the back by an evil force, it’s been a tough week.” A new memorial now also rests on the baseball field in Dopp Park for 8-year-old Jackson Sparks, who marched in the parade with his team, the Waukesha Blazers on Sunday. Sparks died of his injuries this week. When asked how to move forward with the Thanksgiving holiday in the midst of all this grief, Schnieder said it helps to be around the people he loves. “Join together to raise $ 1.3 million, 63,000 people from 12 countries, I read in the newspaper today, and $ 900,000 on Jackson’s GoFundMe page, “Schneider said. “The vast majority of people in the world are amazing people, and that’s what we should be grateful for.” Schneider said his son is also a pediatric surgeon at Children’s Wisconsin and has been treating the children from the parade all week.
