IN MEMORY: Jerry S. Parr, USSS (Ret.), 1930-2015

On Jan. 20, 1981, Ronald Reagan became President of the United States — America’s 40th. He almost died in an assassination attempt outside the Washington Hilton Hotel a little more than two months later, on March 30. It was the 69th day of his Presidency.

Today America is remembering the life of Jerry S. Parr, the U.S. Secret Service agent credited with saving the President’s life. Parr died yesterday. He was 85.
