Jason Kuti Obituary, Death – We are all utterly devastated by the news that our friend and fellow officer, Jason Kuti, who was affectionately known as Kuti, passed away in a manner that was sudden and unexpected, and we will miss him dearly. Before leaving his position as a police officer with the Richmond Police Department 19 years ago, Kuti served with the department. During his tenure with the Rochester Police Department, he served his country as a member of the United States Army and was stationed in Iraq. After completing his time on active duty in the armed forces, Kuti immediately went to work for the Third Precinct as a Master Patrol Officer.
After that, he and Officer Matt McHugh, who was both a close friend of his and his partner on the force, went on to found the HOPE Unit together. As a member of the HOPE Unit, it was his responsibility to offer assistance to people who were living on the streets and connect them with the appropriate resources. In this capacity, he was responsible for providing assistance. Kuti was a motivated individual who aspired to make a difference in the world. He was a devoted husband, father, friend, and police officer. He passed away. He was also driven by the desire to make a difference in the world around him and in his community.
Kuti was a model of honesty and compassion in every facet of his life, and he was committed to offering assistance to the people in his immediate environment. Kuti was always willing to step up and lend a helping hand, whether it was putting together furniture for a friend, delivering meals to the homeless, or stepping up to fulfill a work assignment. Kuti placed spending time with his family, which consisted of his wife of 15 years and their two children, as the highest priority that he could have in his spare time. He had a wide range of interests, and some of his favorites were golf, cooking, and working on various projects around the house. During this difficult time, we are doing what we can to assist Kuti’s family by holding a fundraiser and collecting donations. Click to visit Kuti’s GoFundMe page.
