Deputy Sheriff Mason Moore was shot and killed while chasing a vehicle after an attempted traffic stop on May 16, 2017.
During the pursuit the occupants opened fire, severely wounding him and causing his vehicle to crash. The suspects then made a U-turn and returned to the patrol car where they fired over two dozen rounds into it killing Deputy Moore.
Deputy Moore had served with the Broadwater County Sheriff’s Office for three years and had served in law enforcement for a total of 15 years.
He is survived by his wife Jodi, twin sons, and a daughter.
The Tunnel to Towers Foundation paid off the family’s mortgage in July 2021 in honor of Independence Day.
“Having our home paid off is a blessing, providing a roof over our heads is the biggest gift. We are grateful for the community of people that have helped us and continue to bless us.
This is what keeps us going. I feel it is important for us to fight back and support each other in life and we are very grateful for the Tunnels to Towers family. They show what love is and we are honored to be included in the Anniversary celebration of this great Foundation,” said Jodi Moore.
