Lieutenant Michael Hoosock of the Onondaga County (NY) Sheriff’s Office and Officer Michael Jensen of the Syracuse (NY) Police Department, were shot and killed in the line of duty on the night of Sunday, April 14th, 2024.  

Lt. Hoosock was a beloved deputy, husband, father and a highly respected lifetime member (and past Deputy Chief) of the Moyer’s Corner Fire Department. He leaves behind his loving family, beautiful wife, Caitlin, and there three young children, ages 7, 5 & 3. 

Officer Jensen was a member of the Syracuse  Police Department since February of 2022 and had recently been awarded “Officer of the Month” in December of 2023. A Syracuse resident, Officer Jensen leaves behind his loving parents and sister. 

On behalf of the Hoosock Family, Jensen Family, Onondaga Sheriff’s Dept PBA and Syracuse Police Dept PBA, in conjunction with Law Enforcement Officers Weekend Inc., a nationally recognized nonprofit organization, an OFFICIAL online fundraiser on the FundTheFirst Platform has been created and approved by all involved parties. This is the only recognized official fundraiser for the families. 

One hundred percent of the proceeds will benefit each family. 

Both these men spent their lives helping their respected communities. Now it’s time we help them!

Our original fundraising goal of $500,000 has been reached, and we can’t thank all of you enough! However, this is just the beginning! Please, continue to donate to these two families as we know the financial burden will be immense. Many of you may not be able to show your condolences any other way, and monetary donations will help the families immensely as they now travel through life with their new reality. On behalf of the families, departments and unions, thank you for your support during this difficult time.
