Welcome Sergeant Jerry HaddockBrother Jerry Haddock of Lodge 86 has been a participant in Jacksonville Guns N' Hoses for the past 4 years and was in Jacksonville yesterday training for his 5th fight. Just minutes after completing his workout Jerry had a massive heart attack. A fellow fighter and police officer immediately began CPR until Rescue 20 arrived and transported Jerry to UF Health. I contacted brother Shawn Dunlap and brother Nelson Cruz and the proper notifications with family were made. Jerry's bride (Tangia) was transported to Jacksonville by a co-worker and she has been with Jerry.Jerry is in critical condition on a ventilator in ICU. We were advised yesterday that the next 24-48 hours would give us some idea about Jerry's future but as of this morning Jerry's condition has not changed. I visited with Tangia this morning and she is holding up as well as could be expected and she has two of her female co-workers here for support.The FOP Foundation will take care of any needs she has while in Jacksonville. We arranged housing and I have given her money for food. I advised her that while she is at the hotel she can charge any meals to her room and we will handle it.The outpouring of support from around the country has been very uplifting for Tangia and we will continue to support her in any way we can. Please keep Jerry's 3 teenage daughters in your thoughts and prayers. If there is any change in Jerry's condition I will immediately notify President Jenkins.Our local FOP Chaplain has spent time with Tangia and has made it clear he is a phone call away.Fraternally,David L. StevensFlorida National Trustee OFFICER NEEDS ASSISTANCE!
Officer Jason A. Smith has been a Corrections Officer at Orange County Corrections Department since August 2001. In April 2017 he was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma, an incurable cancer that affects the bones. Due to treatments of chemo and two crushed vertebrates in his lower back, he is unable to work and is currently on an unpaid leave of absence. Before the diagnosis he was the main provider for his family. He already has medical bills exceeding over $50,000, with more to come.
His doctors have a treatment plan for him, but he has a long road to recovery. Beginning in 2018 Jason will have to travel regularly to Shands Cancer Hospital in Gainesville for advanced chemo treatments, which will add travel costs in addition to his medical expenses.
Officer Smith was without insurance for several months, but thankfully he is on his wife's insurance now which helps.
A gofundme.com account has been set up by his wife to help cover some of the mounting medical bills. You can find the account by searching for his wife’s name, Angela Smith-Smith or by CLICKING HERE.
Anything you can donate would be appreciated and please share.
Jason and Angela would like to thank you in advance.
