Anne Marie Jackson

Deputy Anne Jackson was shot and killed after responding to a disturbance at a residence in the small town of Alger. When dispatchers were unable to reach her, another deputy was sent to the location and found her body, along with a second shooting victim.

A suspect was located and led responding officers on a pursuit down I-5 in which he wounded a Washington State Patrol trooper and fatally shot another motorist. He was apprehended at the Skagit County Sheriff's Office by members of the Washington State Patrol, Mount Vernon Police Department, and the Skagit County Sheriff's Office.

The ensuing investigation revealed that the suspect had also murdered three other people on two properties near the location where Deputy Jackson was shot.

On September 17, 2009, the suspect pled guilty to six counts of murder and was sentenced to life in prison or a mental institution. His sentence begins in the state mental institution. When he is deemed to be competent and no longer dangerous he will be transferred to the state penitentiary.

Deputy Jackson had served with the Skagit County Sheriff's Office for 6 years. She is survived by her parents.

In early 2005, I was trying to become a police officer while working as the manager of Cruisin’ Coffee in Mount Vernon, WA. One of my regular customers was Skagit County Animal Control Officer Anne Jackson. I quickly found out that she shared my ambition to become a police officer and was somewhat shocked when I met her again at the WSCJTC Academy - she in class 579 and I in class 580. We shared a friendship until Anne was taken from us on September 2, 2008. Since that day, I have worn a wristband that commemorates her life…Anne was an incredible person and someone I miss.
