Fargo Force Hockey Game Honors Legacy of Officer Jason Moszer
FARGO—The Fargo Force honored Moszer Friday and the game was a sell out.
Scheels Arena has always held a special place in the hearts of the Moszer family because of their love of hockey and the Fargo Force.
That's exactly why, Jason's Father, Dave knew Friday night's game was the perfect place to honor his son.
At first it may have seem like another regular season hockey game, blue filled the stadium, but it was for more than just the Fargo Force.
"It's been hard coming out here without him, last year, when this happened. They were supposed to come to the game with us that weekend," said Jason's father.
In Section 109 family and friends gathered for fallen Officer Jason Moszer, a year after his death.
"But he's going to be here tonight," said Jason's father.
The Moszer family handed out 1,500 blue light sticks for the crowd when the lights went down.
'It's pretty amazing when they have all the blue lights out and around the arena," said Jason's father.
To introduce the team Jason's niece Ally skated out with the Force's Flag.
A crowded stadium for the man who made the ultimate sacrifice.
"He loved doing what he was doing," said Shawn Gamradt, who worked with Jason.
The Fargo Police honor guard, presented the colors.
While the time since his death hasn't been easy his memory and legacy is still in the hearts and minds of his family and friends.
"That's why it's been so hard because he was really close to a lot of us," said Gamradt. "You never know when you would need someone to have had your back, and I knew he would have had ours."
For their fallen brother in blue.
Free Will Donations were being accepted to raise money for the North Dakota Fraternal Order of Police Auxiliary to go to Washington DC in May for National Police Week in honor of Moszer.
