WILLOUGHBY, Ohio — Two law enforcement agencies are mourning the loss of an officer who was killed in a cruiser crash Friday night.

Patrolman Jason Gresko served as a part-time officer for Willoughby police and a full-time officer for the Cleveland Clinic Police Department, according to Fox 8

He was responding to assist a Willoughby officer when his patrol car and a truck collided, sending the cruiser into a tree.

“It’s rare that a police officer gets to serve two communities, and that’s exactly what Officer Jason Gresko did,” Cleveland Clinic Chief David Easthon said at a press conference.

A memorial with flowers and flags has been erected along Harmony Lane, where the crash occurred.

Willoughby Chief Jack Beckwith said Gresko "loved what he did."
