SALT LAKE CITY – May 9, 2017 – The Utah 1033 Foundation awarded seven Utah students from across the state – all children of law enforcement officers – with $2,500 each in scholarships on May 3, 2017 at an event honoring both the individual students and Utah’s fallen law enforcement officers.

High school students from around the state applied for the 2016-2017 Leadership Award by submitting a one to two-page essay reflecting the importance of law enforcement in their lives. In the essay, students were also asked to answer the question, “How do the challenges facing law enforcement today impact how you would show your support for their work, and what actions could you take to encourage more support for law enforcement in your community?” The students were selected for their academic achievement, school service and community service.

Zions Bank hosted the annual presentation of the leadership award program by The Utah 1033 Foundation on May 3, 2017 at 10:00 a.m. at the Zions Bank Founders Room in Salt Lake City.

Each $2,500 scholarship awarded bore the name of one of the seven officers killed in the line of duty since the foundation’s creation in 2011: Ogden City Police Officer Jared Francom, Utah Highway Patrol Trooper Aaron Beesley, Draper City Police Sgt. Derek Johnson, Utah County Sheriff’s Sgt. Cory Wride, Unified Police Officer Doug Barney, West Valley Officer Cody Brotherson and Utah Highway Patrol Trooper Eric Ellsworth.

“This year’s recipients are a group of bright, talented and compassionate students,” said Tore Steen, co-founder of the Utah 1033 Foundation. “Each scholarship bears the name of an honorable law enforcement officer who lost their life in the service of their community. We have added two scholarships this year that honor Cody Brotherson and Eric Ellsworth. We are proud to acknowledge these officers and recognize seven inspiring students for their service in communities across Utah.

Committee members, through a blind screening process, selected the following six recipients:

Tyler Orr, recipient of the Jared Francom Leadership Award

Tyler attended Uintah High School where he tutored his fellow classmates in classes he had previously taken. He is currently serving an LDS Mission in Lyon, France where he has had the opportunity to help people in his community recover after a flood. Tyler is driven by opportunities where he can offer his service and exhibit charity. He is the son of fallen officer, Kevin Orr, who worked for Uintah County Sheriff Department before his passing while in the line of duty. In his essay, Tyler expresses his gratitude and understanding of law enforcement officers who work weekends, nights, holidays and overtime to protect their communities.

Connor Dale Brophy, recipient of the Aaron Beesley Leadership Award

Connor attends Davis High School and plans on attending dental school. He strongly believes in setting aside time for community service and has served many people through a variety of positions as a missionary for the LDS church and volunteer at the Humanitarian Center in Manti, Utah. Connor has a deep respect for law enforcement and has made it a habit to express his gratitude to every law enforcement officer he meets in the community. He hopes to inspire others to always recognize the service given by the brave men and women who keep the community safe.

Alyssa Buck, recipient of the Derek Johnson Leadership Award

Alyssa is a senior at Skyridge High School and plans to pursue a bachelor’s degree in piano performance. Through her community service, Alyssa has realized the importance of sharing her talents and putting others’ needs before her own. She has been highly involved in community service organizations including Humanitarian Experience For Youth, Big Brothers Big Sisters and National Honor Society. She also served as president multiple times for her church’s Young Women’s Organization. Alyssa believes law enforcement helps make communities run more smoothly and keeps them safe from harm.

Alexis Rossetti, recipient of the Cory Wride Leadership Award

Alexis is a junior honors student at Herriman High School and prominent member of her school’s National Honor Society. Through the society, she has obtained countless hours of community service and developed strong leadership skills. Alexis served as a peer tutor where she was responsible for teaching and monitoring the progress of a student. In her essay, Alexis asks for citizens to accept the consequences when a law is broken to honor the laws that have been established and show respect to the offices upholding those laws.

Kennidy Howard, recipient of the Doug Barney Leadership Award

Kennidy graduated last year from Ogden High School and is pursuing a bachelor’s degree. She has extensive experience in community service and has assisted in multiple events for Leavitt’s Mortuary and Aultorest Memorial Park. Kennidy also was involved in events for Layton City Parks and Recreation and Oasis Community Garden. Kennidy wishes to encourage communities to emphasize the positive stories about law enforcement, particularly on social media. She is the daughter of Michael Howard, Roy Police Department Patrol, and loves watching him participate in the “Shop with a Cop” program where fully-uniformed police officers take children shopping for items they need.

Aspen Elizabeth Wimmer, recipient of the Cody Brotherson Leadership Award

Aspen is a senior at Stansbury High School and the daughter of Cammie and Sheriff Paul Wimmer of Tooele County. She received the Doug Barney Leadership Award last year and was grateful to receive another this year. She is active in her church young women group, a member of the National Honors Society and the Governor’s Honors Academy and a member of the drill team. She was awarded the Mayor’s Youth Award for her high school in 2015. In her essay, Aspen calls for the public to stand up for the law enforcement community, and be more proactive in sharing the “good news” stories.

Kamryn Eslinger, recipient of the Eric Ellsworth Leadership Award

Kamryn graduated in 2013 first in his class at Lone Peak High School and is currently a sophomore at Utah State University. Last year, Kamryn received the Aaron Beesley Leadership Award and is happy to be included again. While serving an LDS mission in Russia, Kamryn served as an assistant to the mission president, and had responsibilities for the guidance and wellbeing of about 100 missionaries. In Kamryn’s essay, he shares a poignant thought on humanizing police officers. He pleads for citizens to understand that law enforcement is made up of people with families waiting for them to come home every day.

Throughout October and November, several members of Summit County Sheriff’s Office and Park City Police Department showed their support of The Utah 1033 Foundation by growing out their beards to raise more than $3,600 for the organization. The foundation is dedicated to providing immediate financial support to the families of Utah’s fallen law enforcement officers and presenting college scholarships to the children of active Utah officers.

Nearly sixty officers from Summit County Sheriff’s Office entered the end-of-year beard-growing contest in October by paying for a $33 Beard Permit. At the end of the growing season, photos were taken of the final beard growth and employees had the opportunity to choose the best and worst beards by voting with dollars. Those proceeds were added to the final donation to The Utah 1033 Foundation.

“This is the third year of our annual beard growing contest,” said Lt. Andrew Wright of Summit County Sheriff’s Office. “Each year we sell more and more Beard Permits at the beginning of the growing season. Deputies enjoy the freedom of growing some great, and not-so-great beards or mustaches, all while donating to, what we consider, the most important cause of all, The Utah 1033 Foundation.”

Edward Esber, a Sheriff’s Advisory Board member and his wife, Margaret Esber responded to the friendly contest by matching Summit County Sheriff’s Office $1,854  donation increasing it to $3,708. Park City Police Department continues to grow their beards for the Utah 1033 Foundation and anticipates a donation in January.

“We love our law enforcement family,” said Tore Steen, founder of The Utah 1033 Foundation. “They work day-in and day-out to protect and serve our communities. Thank you to Edward and Margaret Esber as well as to all of our law enforcement community for your tremendous love, support and service to us and the place we all call home.”

The Utah 1033 Foundation Responds to a Community Tragedy and a Utah Law Enforcement Officer’s Death  

Foundation donates $25,000 to Officer Cody Brotherson’s family

SALT LAKE CITY – November 7, 2016 – Amidst Sunday morning’s tragic event, The Utah 1033 Foundation responded by providing immediate financial support to the mourning family. The non-profit’s founder, Tore Steen, hand delivered the $25,000 check to the Brotherson family this afternoon, accompanied by West Valley City Police Chief Lee Russo; West Valley City Deputy Police Chief Steve Sandquist; and Park City Police Chief and Utah 1033 Foundation board member Wade Carpenter.

The group met the family privately in their home on Monday, November 7, to show support and sympathy as well as provide the family with $25,000.

“It is never easy to walk into those doors and face these family members,” said Tore Steen. “We do our best to come with open hearts and support them during this emotional moment, but it is still a challenging time. We hope that our contribution can provide some relief during this hardship.”

The $25,000 was donated to officer Brotherson’s mother for immediate financial support in order to assist with any incurring costs that they may face.

“Cody Brotherson died a hero and now his family is left to mourn and face the devastating outcomes,” said Steen. “Now is the time to rally around this wonderful family and honor this local hero.”

Since the Foundation’s inception, it has assisted five families of fallen officers including the families of Ogden City Police Officer Jared Francom, Utah Highway Patrol Trooper Aaron Beesley, Draper City Police Sgt. Derek Johnson, Utah County Sheriff’s Sgt. Cory Wride and Unified Police Officer Doug Barney.

Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.  – Martin Luther King Jr. 

Last week’s Dallas shooting was the deadliest single incident for U.S. law enforcement since September 11th’s terror attacks. Twelve Dallas Police officers were shot in the tragic attack, five of whom were killed. There have been more than 50 law enforcement officer deaths in 2016 one of whom was Officer Doug Barney of Utah.   

Today, we stand with Dallas, and with our local law enforcement and the sacrifices they make to keep us safe.  The Utah 1033 Foundation was established in 2011 with the purpose of honoring Utah’s fallen officers by providing immediate financial support to their families. We invite the community to show Dallas their support by rallying around Utah’s law enforcement officers and honoring Utah’s fallen.

Your support today goes directly to our Fallen Officer’s Fund, where it will be available to support the families of Utah’s fallen in the coming months and years.   

“Now more than ever our officers need community support. The community support shown to my family had a positive impact on us and will never be forgotten. The Utah 1033 Foundation was among those who showed support by helping us bear the heavy weight of the financial responsibilities left behind.” – Shante Johnson, Utah 1033 Advisory Board member

High school students from around the state applied for the 2015-2016 Leadership Award by submitting a one to two-page essay reflecting the importance of law enforcement in their lives. In the essay, students were also asked to answer the question, “How do the challenges facing law enforcement today impact how you would show your support for their work, and what actions could you take to encourage more support for law enforcement in your community?” The students were selected for their academic achievement, school and community service.

 

Zions Bank hosted the annual presentation of the Leadership Scholarship award program by The Utah 1033 Foundation on May 03, 2016 at 12:00 p.m. at Zions Bank Corporate Office in Salt Lake City.

 

Each $2,500 scholarship awarded today bore the name of one of the five officers killed in the line of duty since the foundation’s creation in 2011: Ogden City Police Officer Jared Francom, Utah Highway Patrol Trooper Aaron Beesley, Draper City Police Sgt. Derek Johnson, Utah County Sheriff’s Sgt. Cory Wride and Unified Police Officer Doug Barney.

 

“We are honored to provide these scholarships to such inspiring youth,” said Tore Steen, co-founder of the Utah 1033 Foundation. “These scholarships hold the names of truly honorable men who lost their lives in the service of their communities. This year we added an additional scholarship that will hold the name of Officer Doug Barney. We are proud to recognize these five students for their service in their own communities.”

The Utah 1033 Foundation Announces New $25,000

Family Education Trust Fund

Trust fund to benefit families of fallen law enforcement officers

SALT LAKE CITY – March 24, 2016 – Tore Steen, founder and chairman of The Utah 1033 Foundation, announced the Foundation’s new Family Education Trust Fund at the Police Chief’s Annual Conference in St. George, Utah yesterday. The newly announced Family Education Trust Fund will assist the dependents of fallen officers with the cost of post-secondary education.

“Since the Foundation’s inception in 2011, we have been able to help five families during their times of extreme tragedy.” said Steen. “Today, we’re honored to announce our Family Education Trust Fund and expand our aid for the families of our fallen heroes.”

While the State of Utah allows these dependents to attend state colleges tuition-free, the Foundation recognizes that the costs of attending other institutions may be burdensome for many families. When an officer is killed in the line of duty, in addition to the $25,000 as immediate support, the Utah 1033 Foundation will set aside $25,000 to help the surviving family with the costs of higher education.

This trust fund will also work retroactively providing educational support to the five previous families whom The Utah 1033 Foundation has helped including the families of officers Jared Francom, Aaron Beesley, Derek Johnson, Cory Wride and Doug Barney.

“We hope to make an impact for these families,” said Steen. “They suffered a terrible loss and we cannot take that away, but we are hoping to help relieve some of this pressure and stress in this difficult time.”

The Foundation is currently seeking donors interested in supporting this new program. For more information on how you can help The Utah 1033 Foundation and its newly formed Family Education Trust Fund, visit http://www.utah1033.org.tore - Trust fund announcement
