Birth: Aug. 15, 1973
Cadillac
Wexford County
Michigan, USA
Death: Aug. 9, 2002
Arizona, USA

Kris was a young man of amazing accomplishments. Raised in the small town of Cadillac, Michigan, Kris became an Eagle Scout, a National Honor Society Student, and graduated from Cadillac High School as Valedictorian in 1991. Kris was a member of the cross-country and track teams at Cadillac High School where he won numerous awards at the local and state level, then went on to run for the University of Michigan cross-country team.

Kris was aiming for a future with the National Park Service, and in 1995, he accepted a Student Conservation Association position at Great Smoky Mountains National Park tracking wild boar and bears. He served as a US Park Ranger at Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore and Canyonlands National Park before arriving at Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument in 2000. He was elected president of his class at the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center where he graduated in June of 2002 at the top of his class and was awarded the National Park Service Director's Award for outstanding achievement. He always took great pride in his daily work providing for visitors' needs and protecting our Nation's heritage.

In the wake of 9/11, Kris protected his country by intercepting thousands of pounds of illegal drugs, many weapons, and hundreds of illegal lawbreakers from foreign countries, and by guarding a 31-mile stretch of our nation's southern boundary.

Kris Eggle was shot and killed in the line of duty at Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument on August 9, 2002, while pursuing members of a drug cartel hit squad who fled into the United States after committing a string of murders in Mexico.

He was 28 years old.
