Bus Operator

Jory J. Bohanan, SMART-TD Local 1607, age 39, North Hollywood, Calif., died March 29, 2020. A member of the union since 2007, he had previously worked for L.A. Metro and had only worked a couple of months for MV Transportation, which contracts with Santa Clarita Transit. “My son, he was a great man. He had a big heart. He was a genuine, good person, and he was easy-going,” his father, Darryl Bohanan, told the Santa Clarita Signal. Jory is survived by his children and was engaged to be married. A GoFundMe had been set up to assist his family.
