Support Master Deputy Conley Jumper's Family
On October 20, 2020, Master Deputy Conley Jumper with the Greenville County Sheriff’s Office was one of three deputies responding to a traffic stop that led to a physical confrontation between the deputies and a person stopped in the car. During the scuffle, the vehicle accelerated and collided with a tractor trailer. All three deputies and both people from the other vehicle were transported to the hospital where Master Deputy Jumper passed away. The other two deputies are expected to recover.
Master Deputy Jumper served as a law enforcement officer for 28 years and is remembered for his passion to serve. “Conley Jumper was a man of integrity and passion," shared Sheriff Lewis. "When I say passion, I mean the man was as dedicated to the job as they come. He was larger than life, both literally and figuratively. At over 6’4” he was a gentle giant who always wore a contagious smile. I say Master Deputy Jumper, but what the record should reflect from this day forward is Sergeant Conley Jumper. His uncanny leadership will be remembered by all. Sergeant Jumper served our agency and the men and women of Greenville County for 28 years. He spent his last years on the GCSO Interdiction team where he received numerous accolades, including multiple distinguished service awards and the prestigious Russ Sorrow Award. Jumper was an officer who embodied the true essence of a public servant. He had more certifications and instructed more classes than anyone can count and that’s because he always strived to be the best deputy he could be. He was a tireless worker and loving friend and he had a heart of gold. He will be missed dearly by everyone who had the pleasure of knowing him.” Master Deputy Jumper is survived by his wife, daughter, parents, and sister and in-laws.
