As the wife of one of Jason's fellow officers, I can happily say that the memory of Jason and the words he left behind are still remembered strongly in our home and hearts. What a huge loss for all those who worked with him and knew him. It is at least of some comfort to know that Jason is up in heaven enjoying the warm, fresh air helping to watch over and guide those he left behind still protecting and serving.
