We regret to pass on the untimely and sudden passing of Mayer (west of Minneapolis, MN) Fire Captain Jeffrey A. Vollmer, 40 years old. After returning home from a physical, “hands on” training exercise, Captain Vollmer suffered an apparent heart attack and despite efforts to revive him, he died in the Line of Duty early Tuesday morning.
