With a son on the way and no one left to carry on his grandfather’s name, Los Alamos Police Sgt. Jason Wardlow is officially changing his name to Jason Wardlow Herrera this month.
Wardlow, 30, is an only child. His mother Pennie Herrera Wardlow expressed how much it means to her and the rest of the family that her son wants to perpetuate the family name.
“My mom and dad, sister and grandmother were killed in a car accident in April of 1958 between Espanola and Santa Fe when I was 8-and-a-half-years-old,” she said.
“We were taken from our home in Taos and weren’t able to come home until Jason was 6-years-old. “My dad’s sister, Aunt Angelina was always reminded of her brother through Jason. She said Jason not only looked like my dad but was mischievous and close to family like her brother. She felt like she was watching her brother grow up all over again.”
It makes one wonder about reincarnation, Pennie said.
“My brothers both had girls and the Herrera name stops with them, but since Jason is so much like dad, we, the family are thrilled to have Jason carry over the name and give it to his and Emily’s son,” she said.
