Boy Scouts of America Eagle Scout Project Marks 50th Anniversary of
New Jersey State Trooper On-Duty Death
Nicholas George, a Boy Scouts of America Eagle Scout candidate and junior at Ocean City High School, will reveal a memorial to fallen NJ State Trooper Marienus “Rennie” Segeren (#2414), marking the 50th anniversary of his passing while working on the Atlantic City Expressway.
The reveal will take place on Friday, May 28, 2021, at 10:00 a.m. at the NJ State Police Barracks, on Atlantic City Expressway, at the Frank S. Farley Service Plaza.
Nicholas chose this project as he has an interest in becoming involved in law enforcement as a future career. His father, Christopher George, is a South Jersey Transportation Authority employee and frequently speaks about the roadway and its history with his family. When Nicholas learned about this year being the 50th Anniversary of Trooper Segeren’s passing and the 100th Anniversary of the New Jersey State Police, his project seemed like a natural fit.
Trooper Segeren was survived by his wife, Lynne Marlow Segeren Freedman, three daughters and a son. He was 30 years old at the time of the accident. The family will be present for the memorial reveal on 5/28/2021.
This is the third Eagle Scout Project the Authority has cooperated on with the Boy Scouts of America.
