Earlier today, Kelsey Whipple shared her account of City Park Jazz's tribute to Celena Hollis, the Denver police officer murdered at the event the previous week. Westword's Nathan Federico also attended, and he tells the story in vivid, often emotional photos featuring the likes of Denver Police Chief Robert White, Mayor Michael Hancock, dozens of officers and Hollis's many loved ones. Check out the gallery below.
