Reflections for Deputy U.S. Marshal John Brookman Perry

John 5:28, 29 - "Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out". I pray that everyone can find peace in knowing that we will see this officer as well as many others again in Paradise soon. Until then, please accept my condolences.

Hard to believe it's been five years. Today our hearts are heavy as all of us on the Task Force relive the memories of that horrific day. We honor your memory and sacrifice, and continue to fight the good fight. Rest easy John, we got it from here.

Five years - wow. John, you are still missed terribly by family and friends - so many, many friends. Thinking of you and all of those whose lives you touched.

John had a big heart. He opened his home to me when I was a college student without a home. While I was his wife's cousin, he could have said his house was too small for 4 kids AND a homeless undergrad student (it was). John was one of the funniest men I had ever met. He had a tough, thankless job, but like all things, he approached it with humility and humor. I miss him and I am blessed to have known him. I owe him much.

Recently viewed a past television episode of "Justified" that honored the memory of DUSM John Perry, I will never know the risk level endured or the courage it took to perform the job he did daily. I give my condolences to his loved ones and fellow DUSM, rest in peace and much respect to DUSM #3055.

You were always helpful when we talked and I think of you often when I'm working. You provide me with an example of how I wish to conduct myself in LE.

Words cannot express the sorrow. I feel a connection since we both have the same identical badge number of 3055.

I just want to celebrate what a great agent your fiance was, I do not know him, but my goal has always been to be a U.S. Marshal. Thank you for your service.

Three years ago we lost a good friend, father, brother, and son. The world lost a good man. Still remembered, missed, and honored. Thinking of you John Perry.

As I sit here today, ready to face the third holiday season without you, I can at least smile at the memory of the delight that you always had in all of the pie making that I did the day before Thanksgiving..and laugh at the memory of the multiple phone calls you did to make sure that I had your "orders" correct. There is still not a day that goes by that I don't think about you, that I don't miss you. Love you always, Pammy

I came here after I saw the "Brothers Keeper" episode of Justified which honored the memory of DUSM John Perry and another fallen DUSM.

As the holiday season moves forward and his absence makes your hearts ache again / still, I want to extend my condolences to the Perry family, to John's fiance Pam, and his fellow officers and friends.

The reflections here show a man whom would be a good friend and teacher to many. You have a great loss, he left left a great legacy.

With gratitude for his service and sacrifice,

You have Veterans of war, our military and you have Law Enforcement officers all fighting for the same things, our freedom and safety. Whether it is our military personnel fighting terrorism or our law enforcement fighting the drug dealers, the gangs, the murderers and thieves, we are all brothers and sisters. When one of our brothers or sisters has given the ultimate sacrifice, we must remember them and their families. They did not have to do this job, they chose to because of their love for this country.

Next time you see a law enforcement officer, a fireman or a military person, go up and thank them for protecting you and your loved ones. We are all affected by the lose of any of these brave people.

The loss of a father is a tragedy for his family. The loss of a law enforcement officer is a loss for the entire country. There are no words that can bring him back or ease the pain but realize that this touches the heart of someone who didn't know John, but still feels a loss.

Tomorrow over 50 people will set out on Illinois COPS Cycle Across Illinois. Jenny DeYong will be riding in your honor, carrying a memorial pin, a challange coin and your favorite photo of the two of us. Given your love of bike racing, I am so happy that you are being honored on this ride. Think of you every day and miss you so much. Love you, Pammy
