State Capitol & Governor’s mansion honor Sgt. Tullier’s birthday

On Thursday night, May 26th, the Capitol and Governor’s Mansion were lit up in blue in honor of Sgt. Nick Tullier.

Tullier’s birthday is May 27th. He would have been 47.

Both the Capitol & Governor’s Mansion will be lit up again on Friday night in Nick’s honor.

Also celebrating Nick’s life is the TIRR Memorial Hermann in Houston, TX, where Nick spent several years. The hospital is holding a private celebration of life, which proves the impact Sgt. Tullier made on the doctors, nurses, physical therapists and the rest of the staff at the hospital. This is a private celebration limited to the Tullier family and hospital staff.

The Nick Tullier Foundation started in 2017. All donations and funds raised were used for Tullier’s needs. Now, the foundation will continue to carry on Tullier’s legacy by helping others in law enforcement.

To begin with though, the immediate goal is going to be getting Tullier’s parents James & Mary back into a home. Their home in Denham Springs flooded in 2016. Due to Sgt. Tullier’s injuries, his parents priority was their son and they too moved to Houston to provide his 24/7 care. They never did rebuild and when they returned to Baton Rouge, they rented a home that was handicap accessible and best suited for Tullier’s needs. So now, his parents do not have a home to return to in Livingston Parish.

All money raised initially will go to get James & Mary a home.

The foundation will also hold a fundraiser in the future to raise more funds. When details are finalized, we will share them.
