Although I never met you, you were a Blue Brother. This past week I had the honor of representing you, your sacrifice, and your families sacrifice. I wore a Band Of Honor in your honor and memory during the Law Enforcement United Bike Ride. Rest easy Brother and God Bless you and your family.

If anyone from Jeremy’s family reads this, please reach out to my PD and leave your number. I’d like to send you the Band Of Honor for you to have. I’m with the Lower Township Police in Cape May County, New Jersey. The number is 609-886-2711.
