On the first anniversary of his death, a New Jersey police detective's widow wants to encourage others to become organ donors.

Jersey City detective Marc DiNardo, 37, was shot and killed while attempting to arrest robbery suspects.

His wife said his heart and two kidneys were donated to three people.

DiNardo was not a registered organ donor, but his wife Mary says it's what he would have wanted.

DiNardo is set to speak at the Legacy of Heroes event Wednesday in memory of her husband.
