Oliver was hit and killed by a car on State Road 200 on Nov. 22, 2016, while chasing Francisco Portillo-Fuentes, a suspect fleeing from federal officers.

Since his death, Oliver's memory has been honored in a variety of ways.

His name was added to the National Law Enforcement Memorial Wall in Washington, D.C.

Months after his death, the organization A Quilt for Mother's Tears gave Oliver's mother a quilt. His daughter, Shelby, was presented with a $6,000 scholarship from Operation American Dream.

In 2017, on the first anniversary of his death, the Nassau County Sheriff's Office unveiled a memorial at the Gate gas station where the foot chase began.
