The thoughts and prayers of UT community members are with UT Police Officer Jeni Gerber, whose daughter, Kaitlin, was shot and killed March 24.

A fund in Kaitlin’s name has been established to support the family at The University of Toledo Federal Credit Union. Those with credit union accounts can call and transfer money to the fund by phone. Those without accounts can bring cash to one of the credit union’s three branches and ask that the amount be added to the fund.

The credit union branches are located at 5248 Hill Ave. in Toledo, Mulford Library Room 013E on Health Science Campus, and Student Union Room 3019 on Main Campus. Phone numbers and hours of operation are available at

UT Police Chief Jeff Newton said the department has been quick to rally behind Jeni, an officer at UT since 2000, and her family.

“Jeni is a strong community police officer, and I have seen how she loves working with students and putting together educational programs,” Newton said. “This is a heartbreaking moment, and we are all here to support her.”
