“This horrific event and sudden loss is something that all of us in the county and the city are grappling with today. Anytime our community loses someone so young it’s tragedy, but knowing that this young man had dedicated his life and career to helping others with our department is a gut punch,” County Commissioner Director Louis Cappelli Jr. said. “We will be keeping the family in our prayers and doing whatever we can to help them through what can only be described as the most difficult period of time any parent can go through.”
