The Peterson Officer Scorpo lost his life to Covid-19

Digital Desk , Globenewswire : The Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation announced it will be providing financial support to the family of fallen Paterson, NJ police officer Francesco ‘Frank’ Scorpo . Officer Scorpo is the Paterson officer to lose his life due to complications from COVID-19. He passed away two weeks ago on April 12, Easter Sunday.

The Peterson Police Cop Francesco ‘Frank’ Scorpo leaves behind his wife, Kristina, a nurse, and their two young sons, 4-year-old Francesco Jr. and 6-month-old Santino.  The Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation will pay the mortgage on the Scorpo’s home until the COVID-19 Heroes Fund is depleted. 

My husband, Frank, will be remembered for his two loves in life: his family and his career as a police officer. Frank aspired to be a police officer from a young age, and we were thrilled when he was accepted to the Bergen County Police Academy. His dreams and hard work were finally realized when he graduated and joined the Paterson Police Department in 2015. Frank was dedicated to serving the Paterson community, and looked forward to work each day. He truly loved his job as a police officer, and was motivated by his work to protect and serve others. I’m incredibly grateful to The Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation for their generosity, which will enable me to raise my children in the home Frank and I shared. I would like to thank the Foundation for honoring my husband’s service, and for helping me to keep his memory in our home

The Scorpo family is a family dedicated to public service. Officer Scorpo served his New Jersey community for five years as a police officer. His wife Kristina is a nurse, and has faced this horrible virus head-on through patient care. Both of them went to work bravely each day, knowing they were putting their own lives at risk in order to help others. My hope is that, in lifting this financial burden off of Kristina’s shoulders, she can grieve and focus on her two young boys with greater peace of mind .

The Tunnel to Towers Foundation established the COVID-19 Heroes Fund in response to the growing pandemic with an initial pledge of $3 million and has subsequently grown it to $4.5 million–and counting–to support America’s heroes. 

To address the overwhelming need, the Foundation has set a goal to raise $10 million in support of our nation’s frontline heroes.
