Juandre Gilliam - Law Enforcement Fatality - Louisiana

Juandre Gilliam
Police Officer Juandre Gilliam, age 22, died in the line of duty on April 7, 2015, at a hospital in New Iberia, Louisiana.

Officer Gilliam was a member of the Jeanerette Police Department. He had two years of service. He had just graduated from the police academy a few weeks ago.

Jeanerette is a city in Iberia Parish with a population of just over 5,500.

At about 10:30 p.m., Juandre was attempting to conduct a motor vehicle stop when the driver fled from the scene. Juandre pursued the fleeing vehicle. His patrol car overturned on a nearby highway.

Juandre was extricated from the vehicle and was rushed to a hospital in New Iberia, where tragically he succumbed to his injuries.

The occupants of the fleeing vehicle, one adult and one juvenile, were arrested and

for Juandre and for those
who have lost him.
charges are pending.

The Jeanerette Police Department is in mourning over the death of their young brother. He was a good kid who had a future in law enforcement. He will be forever remembered.

Juandre's loved ones are devastated over his sudden and tragic death. He did his best. He will be forever mourned.

Juandre is survived by many loving comrades, friends and family members.

Thank you for your service to the community, Juandre.

Pray for all who die in the line of duty.

Pray for all who die young.  They barely had a chance to live.

Pray for all who die by misadventure. They are with us one moment and are gone before we can say goodbye.

Pray that Juandre is in heaven. Pray that he is at peace and is with God. Amen.
