Tulare Sheriff's Department Reacts To Passing Of Deputy Jeremy Meyst

Posted:

 

The Tulare County Sheriff's department is feeling the loss of one of its own tonight after a Deputy died on the job.

31-year-old Jeremy Meyst was driving an inmate transportation van when it crashed northeast of Exeter, early Tuesday morning.

The accident happened along Road 204, south of highway 198, near the Friant-Kern canal bridge.

The crash killed Meyst and injured two inmates who were also in the van.

"Not only has the law enforcement family lost one of their own but the community has lost a servant to the community," said Sheriff Mike Boudreaux of Tulare County.

Meyst was headed to the Bob Wiley facility in Visalia from the Porterville substation.

Officials believe the van drifted off the road and hit a cement guard rail.

Police say they performed CPR on Meyst, but could not save him.

"We realize that death is a part of what we do in this job but when it is one of your own, it hits you closer to home," said Boudreaux.

Sheriff Boudreaux also took to his Facebook to say "Deputy Meyst had many friends within the... department who were visibly upset and taken back by the shock of his passing. He has two small children and a family who will miss him dearly."

Governor Jerry Brown released his condolences following the fallen Deputy's death saying "Deputy Meyst made the ultimate sacrifice to protect Tulare County and its residents. Anne and I extend our deepest condolences to his family, friends and colleagues during this painful time."
