In honour of Constable Northrup
July 6, 2021
As many of you are now aware, Constable Jeffrey Northrup of the Toronto Police Service was tragically and senselessly killed in the line of duty late last week. Constable Northrup was not just a member of the OMERS pension plan, he was a member of the OMERS family. We are all mourning his loss and our thoughts and prayers are with his wife and three children, as well as his many colleagues in the Toronto Police Service.
Constable Northrup's death is a stark reminder of the heroic lives many of our plan members lead, working on the front lines to ensure the safety of our communities. In our way, we are able to help. Our Pension Services team will be working with his family to ensure that his survivor benefits are realized.
At OMERS, we have taken to reflect on these events and the gratitude we owe our members, and their peers globally for their selfless service to our communities.
