Eric Joseph Joering, age 39, was tragically taken from us on Saturday, February 10, 2018 while responding to help others. He was a 1997 graduate of Westerville South High School and attended the Columbus State College Police Program. From there, he was hired by the City of Westerville, Division of Police. During the 16 years that Eric was employed by Westerville, he was a patrol officer, worked in the Detective Bureau, and then became a K-9 Officer partnered with Sam. Eric loved working with Sam but the most important job to him was being a husband and a father. His daughters were his everything and they thought the sun rose and set with him. He was truly loved by all and will be missed tremendously. Eric is survived by his wife, Jami, and his daughters, Eva (12), Elena (11), and Ella (6); parents Jim and Lillian Joering; brother Michael (Jen), nephew Joseph, niece Ravella; sister-in-law Angi (Mike), nephews Nick, Matt, TJ, and Chris; his police family, and many friends.
