Sanje Unkow Obituary

Sanje Unkow, 27, December 23, 2023. Beloved husband of Vanessa (nee Carrion), devoted father of Ace, Alias and Alora, loving son of Ulumje and Kermen (nee Tzevekova).  Also survived by brothers Tashi and Alexander.  Sanje loved to spend time with his family and friends, go down to the shore and ride his Harley. His fellow officers remember him as smart, funny and always dependable. He had the ability to bring a sense of levity to even the worse situations. Sanje was a skilled mechanic before switching career paths into law enforcement. He was known to help out officers in his squad whenever they needed repair work done on their personal vehicles.
