A Message From The Mesa County Sheriff's Office

On February 8, while responding to a call regarding a suspicious male carrying a gun, Deputy Derek Geer, with the Mesa County Sheriff's Office, was shot numerous times and subsequently killed by the armed suspect. Deputy Geer was a beloved member of his agency, as well as a husband, son, Navy veteran, and father of two children. As the community is reeling from this horrific chain of events, the family seeks steady ground on which they can begin to process and heal from this unthinkable loss. Deputy Geer was a public servant to his core; he served in the United States Navy prior to his career in law enforcement, and has served in many capacities for the Mesa County Sheriff's Office since 2001.

In a time of trauma, the last thing any family wants to worry about is finances. Nothing can replace Derek in the lives of his loved ones; however, making sure that his family is cared for is a gift we can give to honor his sacrifice. We thank you, from the bottom of our hearts, in advance for your generosity. May your prayers and compassion be a reminder to the Geer family of the good in the world.

Message from Kate...
One month ago, my world was shaken down to the core. The kids and I are still putting the pieces back together even though it won't be the same picture as before. The only reason we are able to keep getting up each day and smile is because of the love from our friends, family, and the entire community. There is no way I could ever thank everyone enough for their donations, support, prayers, and time. The kids and I have felt it and have been completely awe struck. Thank you all so much. I love you all.

message from Kate...

On behalf of the Geer family, we would like to thank each and every one of you for the tremendous outpouring of love, prayers, and support. The community that we are lucky to be a part of has astonished us with the ongoing generosity and kindness shown to our family throughout our time of need, and it is so heartwarming that a simple "thank you" does not seem to be sufficient. Every single heartfelt gesture, whether big or small, has made an impact in our lives. It has been awe-inspiring and will never be forgotten. Derek loved his life and would want us all to be celebrating this day, so please celebrate each day you have with your family, friends, and the community you live in.

I'm an LEO at Colorado National Monument. One dark night about four years ago, I contacted a group of violators at Cold Shivers Point. When I called for backup, the dispatcher didn't have a chance to answer because Deputy Geer chimed right in, "I'm already enroute." I remember thinking to myself, "Wow, this guy's really on it!" Sure enough, after he arrived it became crystal clear that Deputy Geer was the kind of officer (and person) that we all aspire to be. I made a point to get his business card because he was so impressive and helpful and I knew that this was someone I didn't want to forget. And I won't
