Jasper was my great grandfather and one of many in a legacy of law enforcement. Like my grandfather, Jasper Gargis Jr, I was the first female in my family to continue the family business. I was never able to meet him, but because of him my pap inspired me to follow in their footsteps. It was he who gave me the morals, principles and respect for the badge and ultimately instilled in me the integrity to police with compassion, fairness, and be above reproach in my duties. I feel as though I knew him well thru Pap and thus able to model myself after a man who was the epitome f everything the police should be. Sadly my Pap also passed away before my Academy graduation, but I am certain that they have been my silent partners throughout my career.
