DVI Updates:

 

Staying Strong in the Face of Tragedy

 

We are deeply saddened by the senseless tragedy that occurred in our Downtown over the weekend. Our hearts are broken for those who lost loved ones and who were injured or affected by yesterday’s shooting. We offer our deepest sympathies.
We are grateful to the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office, Fire Department, elected officials, hospital workers and all first responders for their swift action in our city’s time of need.
Downtown Jacksonville is our home, and this incident is not indicative of the Downtown we know. Our Jacksonville community will heal together and make our city better together. Working together – with love and support – we can continue to help make Downtown Jacksonville a better place to live, work, visit and invest.
