Legislator Steven J.
Flotteron recognized a fellow Lynbrook High School Alum, Nassau County Police
Commissioner Patrick Ryder, at the 5th Annual Jake Koenigsdorf
Foundation “Purple & Black Event held on Sunday, April 15th at
the Mansion at Timber Point in Great River. Pictured with Legislator Flotteron
are Commissioner Ryder and Executive Director of The Jake Koenigsdorf
Foundation Kathy Koenigsdorf.
The Foundation was
founded in 2013 in honor of Koenigsdorf’s son, Jake, who died of a drug
overdose, to raise awareness and funds to help other addicts who are willing to
do whatever it takes to get clean but don’t have the financial means to find a
solution on their own.
“It was a privilege to
honor Commissioner Ryder at such an event for his life’s commitment in the
narcotics division where he has spent decades working with fellow officers to
rid the community of drug related crimes,” stated Legislator Flotteron.
