The true measure of a person
is not found in the
might of their arm,
their wealth
or their power –
it is found in the strength
of their character.

There is no greater testimony to
ones character, than ones
willingness to sacrifice all,
in the noble quest of
providing protection to all
whom they serve.

Rest in Peace brother and watch over us. We will protect and serve from here on in your honor.

I fight not for glory or fame, for they are momentary. I fight for those who can't. I fight for Justice. I fight for the oppressed and the down trodden. And if I should lose my life for these just causes, then I have no regrets, For I serve to protect the innocent. It matters not where or when, for evil knows no boundaries. Be it fire, flood, or the threat of tyranny, I will not flee. Justice is my weapon. Faith is my shield. Hope is my armor. Cry not at my passing, for it was my Honor to fight for you. Shed not tears of sorrow, But tears of joy, for now, I stand with God.

By Jon F. Hooper

I met Officer De La Fuente via a ride-along I did with him in November 2019. He was a very nice and professional man, and part of my reasoning for picking my career path was because of him. I am now in the Army NG and seek a law enforcement career afterwards, similar to how he was in the Army first and became a police officer later. He bought me a water on the ride along from the then 7-11 by Belmont Car Wash, and we talked about good Mexican food in Fresno. We spent the time trying to find out how to keep his keyboard lit in his car but couldn't figure it out. I ran into him again December 2019 at the AutoZone on Kings Canyon Blvd while he was working and he recognized me. I am grateful to have known him and even though we only met twice, he had a huge career impact on me.
