During the evening of May 1, Ptl. Schrempft and his partner, Ptl. Cornelius Blackshear, on Pitkin Avenue, Brooklyn. They ordered it to stop and Blackshear asked the operator for his license. As he fumbled for his wallet, Ptl. Schremft, suspecting the driver might take off, reached for the keys in the ignition. Just then the driver floored the gas pedal and sped off ? dragging Ptl. Schremfp with him.

The bluecoat held on for four and a half blocks and then slipped to his death beneath the wheels of the car. The car continued on crashing into a bus which veered into a station wagon. Blackshear took up the chase in a commandeered auto and when he arrived at the crash scene found a passenger had also died in the auto which dreagged Ptl. Schrempf to his death.

I was Gerry's Sgt.in TPF. He was a paratrooper before joining the Department and still looked like an poster athlete. He was always smiling and a good friend to all in the squad. He was very good with people and treated everyone with respect. Gerry was an only child and his Mom and Dad were stunned. Throughout the memorial events and thereafter they exhibited the courage and loyalty they gave their son. He was a great young officer. He joined the Army and the NYPD to serve and protect. Men like Gerry are with their Maker. We will see him again.

He liked to be called by his middle name "Jerry". We were appointed on 12/5/1961 & assigned to the same class. He wanted to be a cop like his dad who had served as a mounted cop with the NYPD. Jerry & I studied together & became very good friends. He went into TPF and I went to the 73rd Pct. The guy that was driving the car that killed Jerry was arrested in the 75th Pct and held at the 73rd that night. I got to see him the next morning when I went in for a 8 x 4 tour. The guy was so drunk he didn't even remember what he had done. He was sentenced to 25 years. Jerry, you've never been forgotten. See you soon buddy. Denny Muldoon #8739

My Sister was his fiance, I was given his barbells and used them to train for the NYPD test. I did 27 years and retired as a first Grade Detective. He inspired my career.

I never had the privilege of meeting him, he was taken before I was born. I have seen many pictures of him in my parent's photo albums and told many stories about him. He was the best man for my father, and I was named after him. May he rest in peace.

I'm not sure who in my family knew Jerry, probably my late father, but I was going through a box of holy cards, and in it was the card from Jerry's wake. I would be happy to send this to someone who would appreciate it if they would like to have it.
