A 28-year-old Boston police officer, who was wounded during the Watertown shootout with Boston Marathon bombing suspects and set to receive the department’s highest honor for his bravery, has died, according to police.
I’m not going to pretend we were super close friends or anything (I don’t think I’ve talked to him since HS 10 years ago), but I remember DJ from high school and he was always a nice guy to me. And this news makes me so very sad. I don’t know I’m getting more emotional with my wedding coming up, with getting a little older, or just that this week has already been all kinds of crazy and I woke up super tired, but I was really affected when I read this news.
DJ, you’ll be missed. Thanks for representing Randolph (and our class of 2004) so well.
