Saying Good-bye To Jess Gilman - Again
It was with great sadness that I learned today that my friend, Officer Jess Gilman, a stalwart within the Costa Mesa Police Department for decades and a legendary School Resource Officer, has found it necessary to depart Costa Mesa - again.
Some will recall that Jess retired a little over a year ago. I wrote about it HERE. Then, he found a way to come back on a part-time basis a few months later and I wrote about that HERE.
During the summer the decision was made to cancel the Costa Mesa School Resource Officer program, but Jess returned for this semester on a temporary basis.
HIS LAST DAY
Today is his final day and this time it looks like he's gone for good. His new business interests - which now will be providing School Resource Officers to every school in Beverly Hills - demand more of his time.
VAYA CON DIOS, AMIGO...
