One day after delivering his State of the Union address, President Barack Obama will visit Omaha and meet with several Nebraskans.

The president is expected to deliver remarks at the University of Nebraska Omaha's Baxter Arena Tuesday afternoon.

During his visit in Omaha, he'll privately meet with a few Nebraskans.

Kristin Fearnow, the attorney who represents the husband of fallen Omaha Police Officer Kerrie Orozco, Hector Orozco, says he and his three children will get to meet the president.

"He feels like this is just another great opportunity for him and he's just very honored by it and very humbled to have this chance," said Fearnow.
