Teaneck Police Officer had served the force with valor and honor, making notable arrests and winning the respect of residents and fellow officers, over a 17-year career that ended tragically when his cruiser smashed into a utility pole near headquarters, killing him, before dawn today.

Teaneck P.O. John Abraham

Police said Abraham — an India native who grew up in Teaneck, was graduated from Teaneck High School, and is survived by a wife and an autistic son — helped save a man who was choking on dinner in a local restaurant just hours before the 2 a.m. crash.

Abraham, recently of Ringwood, died a few hours later at nearby Holy Name Hospital.


Visiting hours are from 7 to 9 p.m. Thursday and from 2 to 4 and 7 to 9 p.m. Friday at the Volk-Leber Funeral Home , 789 Teaneck Road, Teaneck. A funeral service is scheduled for 11 a.m. Saturday at Grace Lutheran Church, 1200 River Road, Teaneck.

Donations to support Abraham’s son can be sent to:
The Jacob Abraham Fund, c/o Teaneck P.B.A. Local 215, P.O. Box 12, Teaneck, NJ, 07666.
