Sheriff Jess Sarber :
It is so sad that the names of John Dillinger and Baby Face Nelson are so known. It is your name Sheriff Jess Sarber that should be known. You are a hero and a man to be looked up to. May you rest in peace and thank you and your family for the ultimate sacrifice. WE are a better people today because you walked among us yesterday.

The Honorable Sheriff Jess L. Sarber was an uncle of my mother, Audrey Alice Kohler Hahn of Wapakoneta, Ohio. She remembered him as a wonder family man, as well as a marvelous law enforcement officer. God bless Sheriff Sarber and his family.
