As announced at the Folsom City Council meeting, Code Enforcement Officer Jeff John passed away Tuesday morning.
John was featured on the front page of the Folsom Telegraph in July 2011 on a story about the duties of city code enforcement officers.
"He was a friend of the family and that was shocking news indeed," City Councilman Andy Morin said.
"I've known him a very, very long time and we're going to miss him. This community lost a great individual," said Councilman Steve Miklos.
City Manager Evert Palmer said, "The Folsom city family lost a member of its own."
John's death is under investigation by the El Dorado County Coroner, the county in which he resided. No details have been released.
