Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Mar. 29, 1957, USA
Death: Apr. 13, 1995
Jackson County
North Carolina, USA

Deputy Ashe suffered a fatal heart attack following a high speed pursuit that went through narrow, steep mountain roads in three different counties. The officers were chasing a driver who was a member of a local militia movement that refused to register their vehicles or obtain license plates.

The chase started when a deputy attempted to stop the driver for not having a license plate. Deputy Ashe was found in his patrol car at approximately 12:15 am after breaking off from the chase. The suspect was released from jail in 2002 after serving only five years.

Deputy Ashe had been in law enforcement for 17 years.

A section of US Highway 441, in Jackson County, was named the Deputy Gene Ashe Highway in his honor.
