Fallen Officer Matthew Baxter

On Friday evening, August 18, 2017, Kissimmee Police Department officer, Matthew Baxter (27 years old), was shot and killed in the line of duty. He was an exceptional man. His love for his community and country spread into all areas of his life. Matthew was a loving husband, father, brother, and son. He was an active member of his community, dedicating his free time to volunteering with organizations such as Big Brothers and Big Sisters, Operation Chill, and YMCA’s Get Your Game On. He is survived by his wife Sadia, who is a detective, also with Kissimmee Police Department, and four daughters, ranging in age from 7 years to 7 months. Proceeds will go directly to his young widow.

My name is Jemlynn Tatlonghari and  I have been a friend of Sadia's family for over 16 years. I am managing the campaign on behalf of the family, but the funds will be handled directly by them.
