It has taken me a long time to find the strength to write this. I knew Jason before he came to Pine Bluff Police Department. When he was with EASI medics he was also a SWAT medic for Pine Bluff. This is how I met Jason. After Jason came to the department he joined SWAT. As any SWAT member knows, the comradery you build with your team members lasts forever. These people become like no other family member. Jason will always be remembered, missed and loved. My heart goes out to Jason's family for their loss. He was an awesome person to know. I miss you brother.
