It is with deep regret that I, Sheriff Stephen P.Benard inform you of the passing of Sergeant Jason Richard Allen.
Sgt. Allen fought a courageous battle with cancer that started in December 2013. Throughout that battle, Sgt Allen remained strong and fought with the bravery of a warrior.
He lost that battle at 2215 on October 18, 2014, but not before seeing as many family, friends and fellow law enforcement professionals as he possibly could.
