Kansas City to honor civil process server killed in line of duty with ceremony and flags at half-staff on March 11


Kansas City, Missouri – Kansas City will see flags flying at half-staff and a special ceremony held in honor of a civil process server who was killed while serving an eviction notice in Independence, Missouri, on February 29. Drexel Mack, a devoted public servant, will be remembered in a ceremony taking place on the steps of the downtown courthouse.

Jackson Co. Executive Frank White Jr. announced that on Monday, March 11, between 10:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m., county operations will adjust to allow staff and residents to pay their respects to Drexel Mack. During this period, the county departments will offer limited services, and residents have been advised to avoid conducting business at the downtown courthouse located at 415 E. 12th St. This adjustment is made to enable county associates to attend the memorial ceremony slated to start at 11 a.m. on the courthouse steps.

Frank White Jr. stated, “Adjusting our staffing schedule at this time allows county associates the chance to attend the ceremony and pay their respects to Mr. Mack, his family, friends, and colleagues.” He highlighted Mack’s lifelong commitment to public service, a value he shared with his fellow county workers. White emphasized the collective mourning within the county workforce and the community’s desire to offer support to those grieving.

To further honor Mack’s memory, Frank White Jr. used the authority granted by the Home Rule Charter of Jackson County and ordered flags to be lowered to half-staff at all governmental offices and police stations throughout Kansas City for the day. Additionally, Governor Mike Parson is expected to order flags to be flown at half-staff on Saturday, March 16, the day of Mack’s interment, as a final mark of respect for his service and sacrifice.
