Senator Burr Releases Statement on Legislation to Commemorate Officer Jason Crisp

WASHINGTON, D.C.— Today, U.S. Senator Richard Burr (R-NC) released the following statement after legislation to commemorate U.S. Forest Service Officer Jason Crisp cleared the Senate last evening. Officer Crisp and his K-9 partner, Maros, lost their lives in the line of duty earlier this year. H.R. 4360, introduced by Representative Mark Meadows (R-NC), would name a facility of the United States Forest Service in the Grandfather Ranger District after Officer Crisp -- the "Jason Crisp Forest Service Building".

"I am pleased the Senate passed H.R. 4360 so that we may honor a brave young man who died in service to the state of North Carolina," said Senator Burr. "Officer Crisp's service and sacrifice will not be forgotten and will be remembered with deep gratitude. My thoughts and prayers are with Officer Crisp and his family."
