The Southwest Toll Plaza was renamed the Deputy Constable Jennifer L. Chavis Memorial Building on Wednesday.
It was renamed in memory of Harris County Precinct 7 Deputy Constable Jennifer Chavis, who was killed in the line of duty in a car crash on April 2 when she was hit in her patrol vehicle by another car, driven by a suspected drunk driver.
Chavis is an Army veteran who leaves behind a husband and two children.
“Deputy Chavis was a tremendous deputy who loved serving the people of Harris County,” Precinct 4 Constable Mark Herman said. “However, her true joy came from her boys.
“Deputy Chavis, you will forever be missed and will never be forgotten.”
