The Family of Fallen Police Officer Michael Chesna
On Sunday Morning, July 15th, Officer Michael Chesna of the Weymouth Police Department was shot and killed in the line of duty after responding to an incident behind South Shore Hospital. Officer Chesna, a graduate of Northeastern University, was just about to celebrate his six year anniversary on the force on Monday the 16th. Officer Chesna is a Veteran of the U.S. Army and served several tours in Afghanistan and Iraq. He leaves behind his loving wife and his beautiful daughter and son, ages nine and four.
We held an on-air fundraiser for the Chesna Family during the WAAF Hill-Man Morning Show on Monday, July 16th and pledged to match all donations made up to $5,000. In total we were able to donate $203,007 to the Chesna Family.
