MADISON, Wis. — Milwaukee County officials say the man killed in a crash involving a sheriff’s squad car was a community advocate and Milwaukee Public Schools lobbyist.

The Milwaukee County Medical Examiner’s Office confirmed Monday 47-year-old Ceasar Stinson died in the collision in downtown Milwaukee Saturday morning.

The crash injured a passenger in Stinson’s vehicle and the deputy driving the squad car. The deputy is on administrative leave while the crash is investigated. Stinson was a legislative policy specialist and licensed lobbyist at MPS.

Friends and co-workers say he spent his life working with other community leaders to improve the lives of the city’s youth.
