Born on June 15, 1929, in Bayonne, New Jersey, Morris Frank Glover was the second child and second son of Albert, Sr., and Grace (Morris) Glover. He attended Bayonne Public Schools, graduating from Bayonne High School at 16 years of age.

Morris accepted Christ as his savior when he was 12 years old, and was baptized by Rev. C.H.S. Watkins at Friendship Baptist Church. He remained a faithful and devoted member of the church throughout his life.

After high school, Morris, known as “Moe” to many who knew him, worked at locally before being hired by the American Can Company, a manufacturing company, located in Jersey City where he would eventually rise to a supervisory position. He was joined in marriage to Helen Glover, née Johnson, whom he had taken to her senior prom, on Sunday, June 28, 1953. Rev. Watkins performed the ceremony at Friendship Baptist Church. Morris and Helen were blessed with three children – Barry Edmund, Lisa Dawn and Scott Vincent Glover.

Following his retirement from American Can after 32 years of service, Morris went to work for Statewide Savings Bank in Jersey City for eight years until he was forced to retire due to illness.

Friendship remained the cornerstone of Morris and his family’s life, where he was a faithful member. His three children were dedicated as babies and baptized at the church. He was a member of the church’s Junior Choir when younger, and sang with the Male Chorus and Senior Choir when he was an adult. He served as a church trustee for more than 25 years and as chairman of the board of trustees for a number of years.

Captain Cornell Avery Scott (affectionately known as 'Sonny' by his family and 'Scotty' by his friends) was born on August 16, 1935 in Jersey City, NJ to the late Samuel C. and Susan Pearson Scott. Scotty was the youngest of three sons born to this union.

Scotty graduated from Henry Snyder High School and attended John Jay College of Criminal Justice. After standing in for a blind date arranged by his mother for his brother HB who failed to show, he met the woman who would become his wife, Cynthia. They married in 1957 and enjoyed a wonderful, loving life together.

In 1965, Scotty joined the Jersey City Police Department (JCPD) and was a patrolman assigned to the 4th Precinct (later referred to as the West District). In 1967, Scotty was selected for the Officer Friendly Program, a model program to acquaint children with law enforcement officials as part of a community relations campaign, and began visiting the Jersey City District Schools speaking to students about 'safety and stranger danger'. In 1971, Scotty was promoted to Sergeant on Patrol and two years later, was assigned to the Internal Affairs Unit, a body of staff responsible for investigating the conduct of other officers.

In 1976, Scotty was promoted to Lieutenant and became the first Black Commander of the JCPD Internal Affairs Unit. Twelve years later, he was promoted to the rank of Captain and in 1990, he was asked to command the West District. He was the first Black Commander of the West District and under his command, the District received many commendations from the Mayor and the community. He served in the role until his retirement from the Department in 2000.

Following his retirement, he was called upon by the Jersey City Administration to assist in the 9/11 Recovery efforts. Scotty was a founding member of the Charlie Mays Scholarship Foundation and in 2015, he was inducted into the Trailblazers Pioneers of Jersey City. Scotty loved flying, boating, photography, music, his family and was an extensive world traveler, exploring dozens of countries with his wife by his side.
