Stone and Pearl River counties.Joe Gazzo was not only important to all of us in federal law enforcement, he was monumental in bridging agency gaps all along the Mississippi Gulf Coast and beyond. The Gulfport DEA family feels honored to hold the hand of his son, Jason, while we stand in his father’s shadow. We will miss him terribly.Terry Davis, agent in charge of DEA operations based in GulfportVisitation will be Friday at Our Lady of Fatima Catholic Church. Visitation starts at 10. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at noon.A ‘true blue’ state trooperGazzo was part of a state trooper family in his personal life as well.His son, Jason, followed in his footsteps.

During his tenure, he faxed state troopers’ “field cards” to the media to provide details of crashes for news reports.Most people who worked in law enforcement anywhere in South Mississippi before he retired knew him or knew of him. And so did many who read news reports that identified him as the source of information or heard him speak on traffic safety.

Many times, he was the first on scene.Admired by those he mentoredGazzo finished patrol school in 1980 and retired in 2008 as a staff sergeant, said Capt. Johnny Poulos, the current director of the MHP's public affairs division.Poulos was named public affairs officer after Gazzo retired, and was later named to a statewide MHP position.“He was definitely one of my mentors and actually opened the door for me to get into public affairs,” Poulos said.“He was a character, one of a kind, and he was...
