🔴 Jamie Widrig was a passenger on a UTV that overturned

🔴 She had married her boyfriend of nine years on New Year's Day

🔴 Widrig served for over 20 years in the U.S. Air Force

TABERNACLE — A woman who had just gotten married on New Year’s Day died in a crash involving a utility terrain vehicle early Sunday morning.

Jamie Widrig, 45, was a rear-seat passenger on a Polaris Ranger that hit a tree along Buttersworths Bogs Road and overturned around 1:45 a.m. when the driver lost control. Two other passengers and the driver were taken by medical helicopter to a hospital.

Her husband, Tim Widrig, was driving another UTV and went back to check on his wife when her group didn't return, the organizer of a GoFundMe page told the Cherry Hill Courier Post.

One of Tim's business partners at Eastbound Auto in Southampton said the couple had gotten married on New Year's Day after a nine-year relationship.

"I let Tim know on Monday that I had started this fundraiser to help him with funeral expenses and he was very thankful as your generosity helps alleviate the stress of paying for a funeral while trying to grieve," Karen Foster wrote on the GoFundMe page.

Widrig celebrated her 21st anniversary with the Air Force in 2021 and reenlisted in 2023, according to a TikTok video.

A memorial service is scheduled for Monday at 10 a.m. and a funeral at 1 p.m. at the Bradley & Stow Funeral Home in Medford.
