Community members and officers joined the family of fallen Berkeley County Deputy, Jacquin Moore during a “Hero workout” fundraiser at Extreme CrossFit in Martinsburg.
“We’re good friends on duty and off duty. We’re pretty close. He was close with pretty much everybody he worked with. He was a happy guy,” said John Cardello, Berkeley County Deputy Sheriff.
Deputy Moore died in an off-duty car accident two weeks ago. A four and a half year veteran of the department, he was assigned as the school resource officer at Spring Mills High School.
“He usually goes to all the basketball and football games with my dad and that’s how I see him a lot,” said Davointe Wilmer.
His mother Jacquelyn Moore said she’s overwhelmed with the support from the community and fellow law enforcement officials.
“It makes me feel good to know that so many people love him and care for him. I didn’t realize that he touched so many peoples lives,” she said.
Vest or no vest, the workout is physically tolling, a way to get everybody in shape and carry on Deputy Moore’s memory.
“It’s a 30 minute workout for how old he is, and it’s all body weight movements with running. We just wanted everybody to be able to have a chance to come out and join in and have support for the local law enforcement,” said Daniel McIntosh, Extreme CrossFit coach.
Funds raised from the “Hero workout” will go to the family’s funeral expenses. Deputy Moore is survived by his mother, daughter, two brothers, three sisters and a significant other.
