Despite the immediate efforts of his fellow officers and firefighters, Packer could not be revived, and he was declared deceased at the scene.

The Santa Clara County Medical Examiner’s office has since determined that his cause of death was ‘fentanyl toxicity,’ indicating a fatal overdose of the potent synthetic opioid.

As law enforcement agencies delve into the circumstances surrounding Packer’s tragic demise, there are allegations that he may have engaged in partying with fellow officers the evening before his passing.

Milpitas police are actively investigating these claims while mourning the loss of one of their own.

Packer’s legacy extends beyond his career in law enforcement.

He gained fame for his remarkable performance as a running back during San Jose State University’s unforgettable triumph against the Arkansas Razorbacks in 2019.

The game-winning touchdown he scored will forever be etched in the memories of football enthusiasts.

Amidst the sorrow and unanswered questions, Packer’s family emphasizes that he had a staunch stance against illegal drugs, leaving them puzzled as to how he became a victim of fentanyl.

His passing serves as a stark reminder of the devastating impact that substance abuse can have, even on those who adamantly oppose such destructive behavior.

The loss of De’Jon Packer is mourned by his family, friends, colleagues, and the community at large.

As investigations continue, his untimely death stands as a tragic cautionary tale, shedding light on the pressing issue of drug abuse within society, according to ABC7.
