My name is Jennifer Grant-Blount and I am the President of the Northern Nevada Chapter of Concerns of Police Survivors. I am the proud daughter of Deputy David Grant, Tuolumne County Sheriff’s Department. On May 31, 2004, my Dad was responding Code 3 to a plane crash when a local utility vehicle refused to yield the right of way and hit my Dad’s patrol vehicle. He succumbed to his injuries an hour later at a local hospital. After my father’s passing I have spent the past few years singing at the California Peace Officer’s Memorial as well as the National Peace Officer’s Memorial in Washington D.C. Music was a gift that my father introduced to me and I love to give back in any way I can. In all honesty, it hasn’t been easy, I have my struggles still to this day. My father’s death has affected every aspect of my life and I will never be the same. He was my Superman, my best friend, my everything. I am a busy mother of two children, Cruz and Isabel and finishing up my degree in Criminal Justice with an emphasis in Law Enforcement. My husband, Adam is a law enforcement officer who currently is working motors. I am an on air radio personality for 106.9 MORE FM and Ten Country @ 97.3 in Reno, Nevada. I am always extremely busy, but I work best that way. I love to spend time with my family whether it’s riding motorcycles, camping, BBQing or planning a big holiday! Being a part of the C.O.P.S. Organization has truly been a God send. It took me almost 12 years to speak to anyone about my loss and its impact. I have met so many amazing people through C.O.P.S. and though it was for tragic reasons, I am comforted knowing that we are all here to help each other through life. I have a true joy helping others when they are in need and being a part of C.O.P.S. not only allows me to do just that, but also to keep my father’s memory alive and helps me cope with my loss. Our organization is new, but we are fierce in our desire to help other survivors. I look forward to meeting everyone involved with C.O.P.S., it is an honor to be a part of it with you.
I am the surviving spouse of Sgt. George D. Sullivan, University of Nevada Police Department, EOW 1-13-1998. George and I have 4 children together, all of whom are grown and doing well. I have one precious grandson now, and I am blessed to spend much of my time with him and the rest of my family. Now retired from 33 years as a registered nurse, I spend my summers golfing, camping, and boating. In the cooler months, I sew blankets, pajamas and other things as an outreach to many of the children of our community who struggle because of choices their parents have made.
I proudly served with Officer Keith Hashimoto, Officer John Bohach, and Officer Mike Schofield whom all paid the ultimate sacrifice and died in the line of duty while working at the Reno Police Department. Their sacrifices and the sacrifices of others from our local law enforcement community are why I’m volunteering for NNCOPS. I attended the FBI National Academy in 2008 and had the privilege of participating in a retreat for children who lost a parent in a line of duty the previous year. I was one of the most rewarding days of my career and I’ll always cherish the memories I have interacting with those kids.
I retired from RPD after a 26-year career and I have taught criminal justice classes to aspiring police officers at Truckee Meadows Community College for the past 6 years. I am married to my wonderful wife of 27 years and we have raised three grown boys. I recently started my own business and I also enjoy spending time volunteering with various organizations throughout the community. I enjoy anything outdoors including cycling, hiking and riding a motorcycle.
