Jacqueline Peaco

Widow of NYPD Hero Gary Lee Peaco

“My late husband, Gary Lee Peaco, died in line of duty in 1988. Before his death, he and I spoke often about the futures of our twin daughters. The main things he empathized were giving them a sense of consistency by establishing a home for them, and teaching them that the benefits of a good education would last a lifetime. With the help of the Benefits Fund, I believe that I have fulfilled his wishes. I bought a house, and we have lived here for over 30 years. My daughters are 36 now, and they have 9 degrees between them, including doctorates. We continue to be grateful to God and the Benefits Fund for your generosity.”
