(FeaturedNews.com) – A fallen Utah police officer’s son was brought into kindergarten on his first day of school not only with his mother but also with a group of “fill-in ‘Dads’” from the South Salt Lake Police Department.
The young boy, Jackson Romrell, was pictured walking into the school holding hands with his mother when a pack of officers from the police force and Police Chief Jack Carruth walked into the school building behind him, filling in for his father who had passed and was thus unable to join.
His father, David Romrell, a South Salt Lake Police Officer, died in November 2018. At the time, the little boy had been only four months old. Romrell had been killed while on duty after being hit by a vehicle being used by a suspect who was leaving a reported burglary. On the Police force’s website, it is noted that Romrell had devoted his adult life to the service of his country and that he had a lasting impact on his community.
Prior to joining the South Salt Lake Police Department, Romrell had served a number of tours with the Marine Corps. A day before his son’s first day in school, the South Salt Lake Police Department had held the Utah Fallen Officer Motorcycle Ride in honor of all of the fallen soldiers including Romrell.
Jackson and his mother had also attended the motorcycle ride to honor the officers. Jackson even had a toy motorcycle during the Ride in honor of his father.
