About Jerry Dove: The roadway where this 5K race is to occur, is named in honor of late Special Agent (SA) Jerry Dove, a native West Virginian. Prior to his FBI Career, he was attached to the West Virginia State Police as an Attorney Advisor while employed by the West Virginia Office of the Attorney General. While assigned to the FBI's Miami Division, SA Dove was killed in the line of duty in a shoot out with two serial bank robbers in the infamous "Miami Firefight" on April 11, 1986. Also killed was SA Ben Grogan. SA Dove has been honored for his heroic actions at numerous memorial services in Miami, District of Columbia, and Clarkburg.

The FBI Jerry Dove Memorial 5K is dedicated to the memory of SA Dove and to all Law Enforcement Officers, Firefighters, Military Personnel, and others who have been killed while serving in the line of duty.
