Washington • Jennie Taylor, the widow of fallen Utah soldier Brent Taylor, the former North Ogden mayor, will be a guest at President Donald Trump’s State of the Union address on Tuesday.

Rep. Rob Bishop, R-Utah, announced Thursday that Jennie Taylor would attend the president's annual address to Congress. She'll sit in the gallery of the House as an honored guest.

Brent Taylor, a major in the Utah National Guard, was killed in Afghanistan by a rogue Afghan soldier in November. He had taken a year leave as mayor of North Ogden for his second tour in Afghanistan and had previously served two tours in Iraq.

Trump is scheduled to give his State of the Union on Tuesday night after it was rescheduled due to the 35-day government shutdown.
