THE STORY:

 

Thank you for getting involved and supporting the scholarship fund in memory of heroic, fallen Boston Police Officer, Dennis “ DJ” Simmonds who passed away in April of 2014. I am honored and excited to be part of “Simmonds Strong” team running the Boston Marathon in 2017. DJ’s death has been a terrible loss to his family and to our community. In his memory, this fund can continue his vision and commitment to the Boston community, to ending gang violence and promoting the safety of youth.

DJ was one of the Boston police officers in involved in the Watertown shootout with the Marathon bombers. DJ suffered a head injury from an explosive thrown at his feet. He took time off when he experienced extremely blurred vision and headaches. He returned to work a few months later appearing to be fully recovered, however, in April of 2014, just a year after the incident, he collapsed while training at the Boston Police Academy in Hyde Park and died.

DJ was a highly decorated police officer, having been awarded a Top Cop award in Washington DC, the Schroeder Brothers Memorial Medal as well as many commendations for his work with gangs.  

The Dennis "DJ" Simmonds '08 Memorial Scholarship Fund is awarded to upperclassmen students at Lasell College, DJ’s Alma Mater; Scholarship Fund recipients are students in good standing with a degree in Criminal Justice who are looking to pursue a career in law enforcement, following in DJ’s footsteps.

In honor of DJ and the future public service of Lasell graduates, please consider generously supporting my 2017 Boston Marathon Run and the DJ Simmonds ’08 Memorial Scholarship Fund. Thank you, Jim Egan
