1. Jesse Heikkila, a 7-year-old from Brockton, Mass., lost his battle with brain cancer last week. Jesse loved superheroes and wanted to fight bad guys, so naturally he wanted to be a cop when he grew up.
2. Local police officer Dawn Savery had been following Jesse’s battle with cancer on Facebook and decided to make sure that Jesse got the send off he wanted. Jesse’s mother, Suzanne, was given a citation making her son an honorary officer.
5. Officer Savery made sure Jesse’s funeral was well-attended, putting out a call to police officers from all of Massachusetts and abroad. They sent Jesse’s family cloth patches representing police departments from places as far away as Hawaii.
