Family and friends hold Celebration of Life for longtime anchor David Davis

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – Saturday, the KUSI family honored the life of longtime anchor, reporter, and fixture of the weekend broadcast, David Davis.

David passed away earlier this month after a motorcycle accident near Dallas, Texas. He was returning home from a cross country road trip.

He is survived by his two children and his wife Staci Ortiz-Davis, who has appeared alongside David many times here at KUSI News.

David Davis joined the KUSI News team in January 2003, he retired just a few months ago.

He graduated from the University of Tennessee at Knoxville with a degree in Communications, and was a huge Tennessee Volunteer fan.  Davis anchored in four states across America.

He received many awards for his work, including spot news coverage of the Jeffrey Dahmer capture, and week-long 9/11 reports from New York.

We pass along our condolences to the Davis family and all those he touched here in San Diego.

If you would like to make a donation in David’s honor we ask that you choose one of the following: St. Jude’s Children Hospital where his little brother Bruce was treated for leukemia before he passed away; or Bichon Fur Kids Rescue where David & Staci found & adopted their beloved El Niño. Please make your donation in David Davis’ name.
