Jeffry Todd Edelson

Sergeant Jeffry Edelson was killed in an automobile accident while on patrol near Liberty, New York.

While en route to a criminal mischief complaint, he made a U-turn on SR-55 to possibly conduct a traffic stop. As he attempted to catch up with the possible violator, his passenger side wheels left the roadway and struck the gravel shoulder. His patrol car went out of control, crossed the roadway, and struck a tree.

Earlier in the month, Sergeant Edelson had passed the Sergeant's exam. He was posthumously promoted.

Sergeant Edelson had served with the New York State Police for 6 years, and was assigned to Troop F.

He is survived by his parents and a sister.

Jeff,

I miss the good times, all that time ago, which you were a part of. I miss the camaraderie. That era was different. Time stops for none of us and it sometimes goes too fast. It’s a different world now. Many times I wish I could turn it back, but we all know that’s just reminiscence.

I hope you are resting at peace with the Lord Almighty. I hope your family is doing well.

I miss you, God bless you and may perpetual light shine upon you.

Your Comrade,
Tony
