Megan Jennifer Cramer was a poet, writer, attorney, social activist, and staff person at JJ’s Restaurant in Kansas City. She was killed earlier this week by the explosion and fire that was caused by a gas leak. Megan received her undergraduate and Law degrees from the University of Missouri at Kansas City. She spent many hours as a law student at the Center for the Study of Capital Punishment working weekly in a pro bono capacity while in law school, to assist prisoners on death row at the Potosi Federal Prison. She lived in Kansas City for 26 years, practiced law there and worked at JJ’s Italian Restaurant on the Plaza. Megan was the daughter of Carter and Genny Cramer of Springfield, Missouri. We extend our deepest sympathies to the family and everyone at JJ’s for their loss.
