Jay Leno surprises family of fallen Kentucky police officer

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Comedian Jay Leno surprised the family of a Richmond, Kentucky police officer who was killed in the line of duty.

Leno was attending a fundraiser.

Leno gave Officer Daniel Ellis' widow and her son an all-expenses-paid trip to Disney World. Katie Ellis called the gesture and the fundraiser "surreal."

Leno also contributed $10,000 to the three-year-old boy's college fund.

Officer Ellis died in November, two days after he was shot while searching an apartment for a robbery suspect.
