Corrections Officer Joseph Parise of the Oak Park Heights Prison was killed in the line of duty on September 24.
The Minnesota 100 Club was pleased to present a $10,000 award to Officer Parise’s family. Officer Parise leaves a wife, young daughter, and a child to be born in March 2019.
This is our third award in 2018 and brings the total amount awarded since our inception in 1972 to $587,000.
We thank our members for making this award possible, and for joining us in supporting the Parise family. Our deepest sympathies to Officer Parise’s wife and daughter.
