SAYING GOODBYE TO OUR COWORKER AND FRIEND
DEPUTY CORRECTIONAL OFFICER
It is with extreme grief and sadness that we say goodbye to our friend and coworker, Deputy Correctional Officer Mike Olino. Mike was on duty at the Adult Detention Facility, Wednesday night, December 16th, when he began having back pains. Those around him noticed his discomfort and offered assistance. As they recognized his symptoms began to worsen, the fire department was requested. Joliet Fire Department transported Mike to St. Joseph’s Hospital in Joliet. Deputy Correctional Officer Olino was pronounced deceased shortly after his arrival. Mike Olino was 47 years old.
Mike began his career at the Will County Adult Detention Facility on December 29, 2003, three years after serving in the U.S. Marine Corps where he received many awards.
Throughout Mike’s career at the ADF, he became very knowledgeable about the day-to-day operations of the facility. He was a senior officer on day shift and was always willing to help his co-workers. He was highly respected and had a gift of making those around him find humor to get through tough days. He was a proud member of the Emergency Response Team and his commitment to the ADF and his peers was evident to all that knew him.
Deputy Correctional Officer Mike Olino will be remembered by his co-workers, not only as a great guy and friend, but also as being a true family man. Not a day would go by without him speaking about his loving wife, his daughter, his son, or his extended family. He lived his life for them.
The news of Mike’s sudden death has shaken the entire Will County Sheriff’s Office staff. Rest in Peace Mike. You will never be forgotten.
We extend our deepest sorrow to Mike’s wife, two teenage children, and to his family and friends.
Funeral arrangements are pending.
