TWIN FALLS, Idaho (KLIX) Deputies from the Twin Falls County Sheriff's office are asking for the public's assistance to help one of their own recently diagnosed with cancer.

Twin Falls County Sheriff's Office

The sheriff's office posted to it's Facebook page a plea for community support of Deputy Jody Jeske who will undergo aggressive radiation and chemotherapy. Jeske was diagnosed with cancer in his throat, tongue and lymph nodes. According to the post's information, the cost of a high deductible and lost time at work will result in high costs for the Jeske family.

That is why the deputies and county employees have stepped in to help with the cost and are asking the public to help too. An account at D.L. Evans Bank has been set up at all branches in Twin Falls.  For more information on donating or helping with the event please call or email: Daron Brown 208-736-4019/ dbrown@co.twin-falls.id.us
