Foundation to pay off mortgage on Sergeant DeMonte’s house – NBC Connecticut

The Foundation of the tower tunnel announced that they would pay off the mortgage of Sgt. Dustin DeMonte’s home after he died in the line of duty in Bristol.

DeMonte was a 10-year veteran of the force. He is the father of two young children and a third is on the way.

The foundation said it would immediately mortgage DeMonte’s home. The Tunnel to Towers Fallen First Responders Home Program pays the mortgages of families of first responders who are killed in the line of duty and leave behind young children.

Bristol community members remember how Sgt. Dustin DeMonte marked their lives.

The Bristol Police Chief said that at just 35, DeMonte had already received recognition and awards, including Officer of the Year. He received a commendation for saving life in 2019 and he was a school resource officer at Greene Hills and West Bristol Schools.

“These cowardly acts of violence targeting our first responders must stop. Instead of preparing to celebrate the birth of their third child, the DeMonte family now faces a future without her husband and father. Two children will grow up with only memories, while their youngest brother was robbed of the opportunity to be held by their father,” said Frank Siller, President and CEO of Tunnel to Towers.
