Remembering Corrections Officer Joseph B. Gomm, Stillwater State Prison

Corrections Officer Joseph Gomm looks into his camera.

On behalf of Meuser Law Office, P.A., we extend sincere condolences to the family, friends, and colleagues of Stillwater state prison corrections officer Joseph B. Gomm. Officer Gomm, 45, was killed by an inmate who is serving a 29-year sentence for second-degree murder, marking the first such death in Minnesota of an on-duty corrections officer.

The day before the assault, Officer Gomm celebrated 16 years on the job and is being remembered by family and co-workers for his kind soul and dedication.

Meuser Law Office, P.A. has represented hundreds of corrections officers, firefighters, state troopers, police officers, and paramedics and understand the dangers they face each day they put on their uniform. We respect the risks they take performing their daily duties to keep our communities safe and take this time to simply say thank you.

We keep his family, friends, and fellow officers in our prayers.
