(Cole was not able to be present during the 2016 Awards Ceremony held last month).
Cole was honored for his actions on October 13, 2016, when he bravely entered the ocean to rescue a swimmer in distress. “Jason’s actions were selfless and he demonstrated what it means to be a true citizen hero,” commented Duke. “Although this token of gratitude is not merely enough for the bravery Jason displayed that day, it is still my great pleasure to present him with this Citizen Service Award.”
