    Well known Sheriff in very serious condition

    Jefferson Parish Sheriff Harry Lee was hospitalized Sunday and is in very serious condition, JP Deputy Chief Newell Normand announced during an afternoon news conference.

    Lee was reportedly having breathing problems and was rushed to Ochsner Medical Center Sunday morning.

    Normand said Lee's family is at his side and he is heavily sedated.

    Harry Lee had returned to the metro area, but was scheduled to return to M.D. Anderson Cancer Center – where he has been receiving treatment – on October 8 to discuss the next course of action regarding his treatment.

    Doctors in the Houston area have been on the hunt for possible bone marrow donors for him, after finding out his brothers and sisters were not suitable donors.

    Lee had said, however, doctors found 28 possible matches.

    Lee first announced he had leukemia back in April. He went into remission in June, but announced in August it had returned.

    Lee has received treatment for his cancer at both the Stanford Cancer Center and M.D. Anderson Cancer Center.

    For those not familiar with Sheriff Lee, he has been Sheriff of Jefferson Parish (LA) since 1979. That's 28 years, gang.

    Prayers sent up.

    28 years is unheard of for a Sheriff. He must be a good one.
    The opinions of my posts are the sole responsibilty of my employer due to the fact that they have totally and completely warped my mind.

    Get well in a hurry Lee. Your people and those that wish we worked for you want you to get back to doing what you do best.
    Being the best is not what always counts. What counts is always trying your best.

    Remember who you are, and where you came from. That way you never get a big head.


    May those that lost their lives in 9-11 RIP, for the things you did not many could do. You left so many behind so that you could save so few. For now we stand strong as one, and will not look back till the fight is done. (me)

    Harry Lee is type of Sheriff that people eighter love or hate.

    I've met him, he's 100% old school, exactly what you would expect from a strong southern sheriff. Great man.

    Get well soon, Sheriff!

    The title "Sheriff" or "Chief" tends to poison a persons mind. It's great to see someone like this person. I wish for a speedy recovery.

    Here is the Bio of Sheriff Lee.



    Harry Lee was born in the back room of a Chinese laundry in downtown New Orleans. He lived in a single room with his mother, father, two older sisters, two younger sisters and a younger brother.
    The Lee family got out of the laundry business during World War II and opened a restaurant and bar. Typical of Chinese families, Harry's father required all the children to work and while attending grammar school, he was required to take a bus and work after school and all day Saturdays and Sundays. This tradition of hard work is the basis for Harry Lee's success.
    While in grade school, he was elected president of his class and president of the student body. In high school, he was the only person in the forty-year-history of Francis T. Nicholls to serve both as Senior Class President and Student Body President. When he graduated from high school, he received the American Legion Award as the outstanding male graduate.
    Harry Lee received a Bachelor of Science degree in Geology from Louisiana State University. He was inducted into the Geology & Mining Society, an honor society for geology students, lettered in tennis and was designated an outstanding ROTC Cadet.
    After receiving his degree from LSU, Harry entered the Air Force and, as a Junior Officer in the Strategic Air Command was rated in the top two percent of Junior Officers in the entire Air Force.
    Returning home from the service, Harry's family opened the famous House of Lee Restaurant in the year 1959. Because of his leadership abilities, Harry was elected president of the New Orleans Chapter of the Louisiana Restaurant Association in 1964. His fellow restaurateurs credit his leadership for the peaceful integration of restaurants in New Orleans after the enactment of the Civil Rights Act in 1964.
    When his younger brother finished college, Harry told his father he would like to obtain a law degree. His father said, as long as he did his share of the work, what he did on his own time was "ok" with him. Working 72 hours a week managing the family restaurant, Harry received a Law degree, was elected President of the Loyola Student Bar Association and was inducted into the Blue Key National Honor Fraternity.
    After just a few years of law practice, Harry was the first United States Magistrate to be sworn in for the Eastern District of Louisiana in 1971. His leadership abilities were again recognized and he was elected President of the National Council of United States Magistrates in 1973.
    When Harry Lee visited the People's Republic of China as a member of the Boggs/Ford Delegation in 1972, it was determined he was the first American of Chinese Ancestry to be officially invited to the people's Republic of China since 1959. Harry Lee recognizing the need for a strong military service, joined the National Guard in 1961 as a 1Lt and retired in 1987 as the Assistant Adjutant General for Air with the rank of Brigadier General (La). Harry Lee presently serves as the Commander of the Louisiana State Guard with the rank of Major General (La).
    After resigning from the office of United States Magistrate, Harry was appointed as Parish Attorney for the Parish of Jefferson, State of Louisiana, and in 1979 was elected Sheriff of Jefferson Parish. Harry was re-elected in 1983, 1987, 1991, 1995,1999, and again in 2003.
