To all the members of the Nevada State Firefighter Association, it is with a heavy heart I inform you that we have lost a true American hero today. Past President Sgt. Ben Jenkins was gunned down in the line of duty this morning during an attempt to assist a motorist. Some of you may have known him as a volunteer firefighter, director, president and Past President of our board, but he was also a state trooper with the Nevada Highway Patrol, as well as a veteran of our armed forces, he was a true public servant.
Ben was involved in the great outdoors and enjoyed helping handicapped individuals by taking them on hunting trips among other activities. He really loved and was passionate about his hunting, fishing, boating, camping and
spending time with friends and friends.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to his wife, children, grandchildren & family during this unimaginable time.
You will be in our thoughts and part of our story forever Ben.
Rest In Peace my friend
Nevada State Firefighters Association
