Jason Robert Raynor

Police Officer Jason Raynor succumbed to a gunshot wound sustained on June 23rd, 2021, while he was investigating a suspicious vehicle.

He noticed the vehicle parked near an apartment building in the 100 block of Kingston Avenue at about 8:50 p.m. The occupant of the vehicle exited it and then suddenly pushed Officer Raynor. During the ensuing struggle, the subject shot Officer Raynor in the head.

The man fled to Atlanta, Georgia, where he was arrested three days later. He was extradited to Florida and charged with first-degree murder of a law enforcement officer. In September 2023, the man was convicted of manslaughter, and in October 2023, he was sentenced to 30 years.

Officer Raynor had served with the Daytona Beach Police Department for two years and had previously served with the Port Orange Police Department for three years. He is survived by his mother, father, and sister.

Just stopping by to say hello. I remember being on perimeter that night. You will never be forgotten and I will always remember the brief encounter we had working one evening with the small talk. Many prayers to your family and co-workers still.
