Deputy Terry Tyler Benefit


Law Officials in Jasper County gather at The Sports Park of South West Missouri, for a game of softball to help support one of their own.

Family, friends and coworkers join together for Deputy Terry Tyler, who was recently diagnosed with stage two pancreatic cancer. Twelve teams participated and paid $200 a team to help their friend. The fundraiser also included a Silent Auction.

Proceeds of the event go towards paying Tyler's medical bills.

Tyler's oldest daughter Ashlynn says she is overwhelmed and grateful for all the support.

"That means a whole lot, that all these people care about him and care about how we get through this together. It's good to see." Says Tyler.

"He's not just a fellow coworker to me he's... during the tornado he lived across the alley to me he was the first guy trying to dig me out of my house, so to me it was not only something I could do for him, but it was a way of repaying what he did for me" says event organizer and friend Chris Carriger.

The Chicago branch of the Fraternal Order of Police also sent Tyler a gift. A Chicago Bears Jersey, his favorite team.
