The One Hundred Club of San Mateo County

Add Space Available - 2017 Installation Dinner Program!

Fellow 100 Club Members:

Thank you for your continued support of the 100 Club of San Mateo County which was created in 1972 to help support the families and the loved ones of Law Enforcement Officers killed in the line of duty in San Mateo County.

Our Annual Installation of Officers Dinner Banquet is taking place on Thursday evening, November 2, 2017, and I hope all of you will be able to attend and support this years incoming Officers, Members of the Board of Directors and the naming of our second annual Founders Awardee. Similar to past years, the 100 Club of San Mateo County is accepting either business or congratulatory ads in our Dinner Program. This Program will be placed at every table at our Annual Dinner and each person attending the dinner will be able to take a souvenier program home. This continues to be a great way to advertise your business, show your support for our organization, support the Founder's Awardee and (or) to congratulate the new officers and board members being inducted for the upcoming year.

Advertisement in our Annual Dinner Program is a newer concept adopted by our Board to elevate the level of our Installation Dinner as we've done over the years.  We wish to create a tradition of supporting volunteer leaders in the 100 Club of San Mateo County, and this is a perfect way to do just that!

Hayward Sergeant Killed in the Line of Duty

 

 

The 100 Club of San Mateo County has learned with great sadness of the death of veteran Hayward Police Sergeant Scott Lunger on the morning of July 22, 2015.  Sergeant Lunger, a 15 year veteran of the Hayward Police Department had been recently promoted to the rank of sergeant.  He was shot and killed at about 3:15 a.m., during a traffic stop of an erratic driver.

The 100 Club of San Mateo County wishes to express our condolences and deepest sympathy to the family and friends of Sergeant Lunger, along with the entire Hayward Police Department and the Law Enforcement profession for this loss.

Thousands Attend Memorial for Fallen Officer Michael Johnson

On April 2, 2015 dozens of members of the 100 Club of San Mateo County joined thousands of mourners who attended the memorial service for Fallen San Jose Police Officer Michael Johnson.  Those in attendance included local and state elected officials and dignitaries along with thousands of police officers from throughout the region, state and the nation.  The memorial was held at the SAP Center in San Jose, and the attendees filled the arena. 

The many speakers at the memorial included California Attorney General Kamala Harris, Bishop Patrick McGrath, and San Jose Police Chief Larry Esquivel who spoke about the sacrifice that Officer Michael Johnson made on March 24, 2015, along with the sacrifices made by our law enforcement officials on a daily basis.  Chief Esquivel, stating that this was "the hardest thing I have ever had to do," recounted being approached by a weeping woman days after the killing of Officer Johnson, who told him that Officer Johnson had recently helped her save her son from going down the "wrong path in life".  She described how her son had begun acting out and missing school and how she was concerned he was making bad decisions.  Officer Johnson had a long conversation with her son and she told Chief Esquivel that her son had turned himself around.  The Chief pointed to this example of Officer Johnson's connection with the community.

Menlo Park Police Officer David Solis, who is a former San Jose Police Officer and academy classmate of Johnson, spoke eloquently about the bond that had been forged with his entire academy class, especially after the killing of fellow classmate, Officer Jeffrey Fontana, shortly after they had graduated the police academy in 2001.  Solis spoke about the fact that this changed Officer Johnson and his entire academy class, and urged everyone in attendance to "change the way they live," and that this would be the greatest way to honor the sacrifice of Officer Michael Johnson.  Officer Solis, many times speaking through tears, led everyone in the arena in a thunderous standing ovation for Officer Johnson, "not for the way he died, but for the way he lived."

After the memorial service, hundreds of police motorcycles led the funeral procession from the SAP Center to a private burial, passing hundreds of officers and other mourners who lined the streets of San Jose to pay their last respects. 

Officer Michael Johnson, known as "Mike" by all of his family and friends was born on December 4, 1976.  In 2001, Michael Johnson joined the San Jose Police Academy and graduated on June 15, 2001.  During his time with the San Jose Police Department, Officer Johnson worked as a Patrol Officer, Court Liaison, and Prescription Drug Fraud Specialist.  At the time of his death, Officer Johnson had recently been promoted to Field Training Officer and assigned to the Covert Response Unit.

Officer Johnson was an avid shooter and had participated with his father in shooting competitions at the US Police and Fire Games.

Officer Johnson and his wife, Nicole ("Nikki"), were married in a civil ceremony on August 3, 2013.  They were planning a formal wedding ceremony and reception for August 29, 2015 in Santa Cruz.

Officer Johnson is survived by his wife Nikki, his parents Daniel Johnson and Katherine Decker, his step-parents Dann Decker and Penny Johnson, his grandmother Frances Guillemen, his sister Jamie Radack, his brother-in-law Steve Radack, his niece Ami Radack, his nephew Eli Radack, and his mother and father-in-law Gina and Jameson Stiehr.
