State Trooper Dies from Wasp Sting

August 23, 2007  | 

An Ohio State Highway Patrol trooper has died after being stung by a yellowjacket.

Trooper Jack P. Holland was conducting salvage inspections at the Seville CDL Facility in Medina County. After returning to his desk at approximately 1 p.m., he was stung by a yellowjacket. He had a severe reaction and was transported by Westfield EMS to the Lodi Emergency room at 1:13 p.m. where he was pronounced dead at approximately 2:30 p.m.

“This is a tragic loss for the Patrol Family. Our thoughts and prayers are with Trooper Holland’s family and friends,” said Colonel Richard H. Collins, Ohio State Highway Patrol superintendent.

Holland, a 19-year Patrol veteran, began his career in April 1987 as a member of the 116th Academy Class. He earned his commission in September of that year and was assigned to the Findlay Post. In October 1990 he transferred to the Sandusky Post and in September 1993 to the Elyria Post. He transferred to the Ashland Post in February 1999. He transferred to Massillon District Headquarters as a Salvage Inspector in September 2003, where in 2004 he earned the Trooper Recognition Award.

He is survived by his wife, Jennifer, and children, Sabrina, 14, Alexis, 10, and John, 8.
