Deputy Derek Geer Memorial Fund

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.
