2012 Tpr. Gregory K. Tesch


Trooper Gregory K. Tesch embodies public service. After retiring from the United States Marine Corps, he joined the Patrol in 2008. He is assigned to Troop A, Zone 7, Jackson County, where he enforces the law with compassion, fairness, and integrity. He routinely answers requests for assistance from the troop public information and education officers to provide programs.

Trooper Tesch spends much of his off-duty time serving his community. He is active in Boy Scouts of America as an assistant cubmaster and pack trainer for Pack 366 in Lee's Summit, Missouri. He also assisted with Thunderbird District's Cub Scout Day Camp in 2012. Trooper Tesch also serves as a community disaster volunteer with the America Red Cross. He has provided smoke detectors and fire safety information to indigent families in Kansas City. He volunteers with Literacy Kansas City, helping to advance literacy among adults. In 2012, he participated in the Polar Bear Plunge to benefit Special Olympics, and ran in the Groundhog 10K run to benefit the Children's Therapeutic Learning Center. Trooper Tesch participated in the Multiple Sclerosis "Walk For The Cure" in support of a fellow trooper. He also ran in the Mountain Grove Lions Club 5K Pride Run to benefit a family in need. He donates blood regularly and is a member of the American Legion, Veterans of Foreign Wars, National Rifle Association, and the Missouri State Troopers Association.

Trooper Tesch has the heart of a volunteer. He is a servant leader. The MASTERS Public Service Award was created to emphasize the importance of public service. The award honors a member whose actions strengthen the Patrol's motto of "Service and Protection." In 2012, that member was Trooper Gregory K. Tesch, Troop A.
