The Cook County Sheriff’s Office gives the final farewell to Sheriff’s Police Officer and Training Academy Instructor Jason Gallero.
Where: Divine Providence Catholic Church (2550 Mayfair Ave, Westchester)
When: Wednesday, September 21, 10a.m.
Officer Gallero passed away Thursday, September 15, after collapsing during a colors run, a 5K race that welcomes new recruits to the police force and salutes law enforcement who, like Gallero, died in the line of duty.
A 22-year veteran of the Cook County Sheriff’s Office, Officer Gallero began his career in the Department of Corrections in 1994 before joining the Sheriff’s Police Department in 2002.
He was a loving father to his daughter and a respected instructor to recruits of the Cook County Sheriff’s Office and other law enforcement agencies across Cook County.
He touched many lives and will be truly missed.
