The 106th Precinct Auxiliary Unit is deeply saddened by the passing of one of its own Lieutenant John Jefferson.
Jefferson was born Christmas Day 1943 and died on Halloween. He joined the 106th Precinct Auxiliary Unit in 1981, after serving 30 years — over 7,100 hours — as a volunteer with the NYPD, and serving and helping the community he loved.
“This Thanksgiving, we, the 106th Precinct Auxiliary Unit, give thanks for having the opportunity to have known such a wonderful and gentle man, who served with pride,” said officials. “Lieutenant John Jefferson, you are so missed, and will continue to be missed, forever in our hearts and memories, lovingly, your brothers and sisters in blue at the 106.”
