I first met Tropper Jerry Davis when he was a patrolman with the Texas Tech University Police Department, Lubbock, TX. He was a dedicated professional who shared with me his ambition to go to work for Texas DPS. Those of us that knew Jerry knew that he would realize his goal. His memory lives on in the hearts and minds of those he touched. I am honored to have known him.
