A hero in life and death, fallen officer saved lives through organ donation- Denver Post
Derek Geer is a hero. The Navy veteran served to protect the people of Mesa County and died in the line of duty when a suspect shot him in February. He became a hero a second time by donating his organs. Four individuals now benefit from Geer’s posthumous gift. His heart, liver and kidneys all went to others in need. For those equally moved by this story, one way to honor Kate and Derek Geer is to become an organ and tissue donor.
