The 41-year-old officer, a 14-year veteran of the Mentor Police Department, was killed in a hit-and-run crash early Sunday morning.

Officials say the officer was hit by a Jeep while helping with a traffic stop on the side of Route 2 at around 1 a.m.

At a press conference Monday, City Manager Kenneth Filipiak said Mazany leaves behind a son, Mathew Joseph; a brother, Michael J. Mazany; his father, Michael S. Mazany; and Lisa Mazany, to whom he was married for 12 years.

Mazany was born in Maple Heights, where his father served as a police officer for 34 years. He said his life-long ambition was to become a police officer.
