Kindergartner Chooses School’s Security Officer For ‘Dress As Your Favorite Person Day’

We all had looked up to someone while growing up.You had probably idolized a fictional character, a superhero, or just an ordinary person who immensely amazed you because of what they do as a profession.For a young boy named Easton Blocker, it was the person who protects them as they learn at school.

It’s none other than Jefferey Cross, their school’s security officer.At such a young age, the then kindergartner showed nothing but admiration for what Officer Cross does as a professional.In fact, back in 2020 during the school’s “Dress As Your Favorite Person Day”, Easton made it obvious to the entire school.


On that very day, he came in all dressed up as a school security officer.

He tried to exactly match Officer Cross’ uniform – yellow shirt, black pants, and black shoes.

The little school security officer was very proud in letting the entire school and Officer Cross know that he is his favorite person.


His mom, Lauryn, told Good Morning America, “He’s infatuated with Officer Cross. He will tell you, ‘That’s my best friend!’”

Easton’s mother saw and felt how her son truly admires Officer Cross.

To support her son at the upcoming event, she went out of her way and bought her son’s costume.

She even put “Junior Security” on the back of the yellow shirt using vinyl letters.

“For someone who my son looks up to so much I’m going to say, ‘Hey, this is how much he adores you,’” Lauryn added.

Officer Cross was deeply touched.
He is also a parent, a father of one, and for him, learning about all that was absolutely shocking.


“Most of the scholars are expected to dress as their teachers or fellow classmates. Easton, ever since the first day of school, he comes up and hugs me. He’s adorable. He has a very fun, high-spirited personality,” he told GMA.

Let’s admit it, a kid’s innocence is one of the purest acts of kindness that we will witness in this cruel world.

Instead of admiring supernatural powers that are often seen on TV and in movies, Easton here is simply admiring how Office Cross is keeping them safe at school.

It made him love his job even more.

After realizing that his duty greatly influenced a little boy like Easton, Officer Cross told THV11, “It makes me appreciate my job more.”

Who wouldn’t? If you see that your job does a lot of impact on someone, let alone a child, you will definitely love your profession more.

We are sure, that whenever Officer Cross gets tired, this wonderful experience will energize him to continue and push further.Jacksonville North Pulaski School District also shared the beautiful moment on their official Facebook account.

“Junior Security” Easton and Officer Cross’ story simply shows that anyone can be a hero to someone.
