Honoring the sacrifice of those who gave everything to protect us. That’s one Naples woman’s mission.

Rosemary Zore is behind upcoming events that support families of officers killed in the line of duty.

That includes the loved ones of community servants like Fort Myers Police Officer Adam-Jobbers Miller and Miccosukee Police Officer Steven Greco.

Zore is the founder of Fallen Officers, The Robert L. Zore Foundation, and backing the blue is personal for her, “I just really wanted to do something to try and bring the community and the police officers back together and also honor the ones that we have lost.”

She says that knowing someone is out there wanting to help a family carry on the memory of a lost son daughter, husband, wife does make a difference.

“The whole reason why I started this foundation is to honor my father, Robert L. Zore,” She recalled. “He was killed in the line of duty when I was 7 years old, on december 25, 1983 it was on Christmas day.”

Now her father’s name is attached to events like ‘The Blue Bowl’, a flag football tournament she started in Estero, and is taking across the nation.

In May a Blue Bowl will be held in Fort Worth, Texas.

Mike Randall, vice president of Fallen Officers said, “I’ve seen her struggle and since she started this foundation it’s a way to connect again with her father and I’m very proud of her because she’s working very hard.”

And a blues concert will be held in March at Cambier Park in Naples.

Zore says events also back the blue by financially supporting active law enforcement, “If you’re a police officer and you get hurt on the job and you’re out of work … or if your child gets sick or your wife … we’ll help as much as we can.”

A ‘Boats and Barbecue‘ event in Naples this Sunday will support the widow of Miccosukee Police Officer Steven Greco.
