I am writing a book about my personal experiences in my 36 years of law enforcement, thoughts, feelings, memories, good times and bad. Of course, part of my story includes those men and women who I have had the privilege to work with and know over those many years. So how can I not express my love and respect for this wonderful young man, and friend.
Jack was one of the kindest, soft-spoken individuals I have ever known, with a great sense of humor and that smile of his that couldn't help but make you love him and feel connected to him. I didn't work long with Jack and our career paths took us to different parts of this huge county we served, but I never forgot the person he was and how much I enjoyed talking to him, seeing that smile, hearing his unique voice. I was crushed by the news of his murder - how can such good beautiful human beings be taken from us, too soon. I often think of Jack, and smile because of brief friendship, and I will always miss him. God bless his family, friends, and all of our brothers and sisters in law enforcement who with exemplary character and decency, make the best effort to do right by those we serve, exposing themselves to danger and risking their lives willingly for that purpose, and most especially on behalf of each other. Rest peacefully, my friend Jack.
