The NBC affiliate in Dallas-Fort Worth reported yesterday that no arrests have been made in the September hit-and-run that killed 25-year-old Andrew Jordan Santiago, a senior associate at PwC in Dallas.
Santiago was walking home at around 11:08 p.m. after he watched the Dallas Stars play in the Stanley Cup Final on Sept. 25.
Dallas police said a driver in a red Honda was traveling on Blackburn Street, crossing the service road to North Central Expressway.
Jordan was crossing Blackburn in a crosswalk when he was hit and thrown a short distance.
The driver, police said, got out, checked on the victim, but then got back inside and drove away.
What could have been a terrible accident has turned into a hit-and-run investigation, police said.
The 25-year-old died about a week later. Even in his death, Santiago helped others.
“He was indeed an organ donor,” his uncle said. “He was able to save six people the day after he passed.”
Dallas police confirmed they recovered the alleged suspect’s car the night of the incident and it is in police custody. However, the registered owner has retained an attorney.
According to Santiago’s LinkedIn profile, he is a graduate of the University of Arkansas and interned at PwC—both in the winter and summer—before joining the firm full-time in 2018 as an associate on the deals team. He also was in the process of completing his CPA exam.
Santiago’s parents and family are forming a charitable foundation in Jordan’s name and a GoFundMe page has been established to raise funds for that foundation. A fundraising goal of $25,000 has been set, and as of time of publication, $13,424 has been raised.

Last Sept. 6 was the two-year anniversary of the shooting death of former PwC Dallas associate Botham Jean, who was murdered in his apartment by Dallas police officer Amber Guyger.
Guyger was sentenced to 10 years in prison on Oct. 2, 2019.
