WILLOUGHBY, Ohio -- Visitation for Officer Jason Gresko was held Wednesday at the Monreal Funeral Home in Eastlake. 

Gresko was on his way to assist a fellow officer Friday night when he clipped a truck and spun into a tree along Harmony Lane in Willoughby. No one was cited for wrong-doing.

Gresko leaves behind a wife and young daughter. He was a part-time officer with Willoughby, and a full-time with the Cleveland Clinic Police Department. Hundreds of fellow officers and friends have been paying their respects to the 32-year-old patrolman since the crash.

The funeral will be Thursday at 10 a.m.

On Friday, Willoughby South and Eastlake North's football teams will wear #63 on their helmets during their game to honor Officer Jason Gresko.
