New Hampshire State Police Staff Sergeant Jesse Sherrill
New Hampshire State Police Staff Sgt. Jesse Sherrill was killed during the overnight hours after a crash involving a police cruiser and a tractor-trailer on Interstate 95 near Exit 3 northbound, according to state officials. He was 44 years old.
“Staff Sgt. Sherill was known as a trooper’s trooper, a consummate dedicated professional, and a true family man,” Noyes said.
Gov. Chris Sununu added, “He was an individual who nobly answered the call to service, and he was steadfast and devoted to the safety and well-being of all of his fellow Granite Staters.”
“Staff Sergeant Sherrill was an incredible member of the law enforcement community and, more importantly, a loving husband, father, son and brother,” Attorney General John M. Formella said in a statement.
