Fiocchi-Jensen, Pekin Insurance join forces to send veterans on Honor Flight

PRINCETON — Fiocchi-Jensen Funeral Home, Bureau County’s local Pekin Insurance pre-need agency in Princeton, is once again participating in the Tour of Honor campaign which honors American veterans for their sacrifice.

“We, in Bureau County, the heart of America, thank the men and women who made the sacrifice and commitment to fight for the freedom and safety of our country. By providing our families the option of a pre-paid funeral insurance program, we have helped provide a tribute to those who gave so much,” said Rich Fiocchi, director of the Fiocchi-Jensen Funeral Home.

For every life insurance application submitted, money was donated to the Honor Flight Network which transports veterans to Washington, D.C., to visit and reflect at their memorials. Due to our effort, combined with other participants, a total of $20,000 was contributed to this cause by Pekin Insurance.
