Reflections for Police Officer Rueben Isaac Jones

Hi Rueben,
Sorry its taken so long to reflect, I still can't believe that you are gone, I remember your smile and always asking about Bruce and his injury, and how he was getting along. you were definitely a class act, and someone unforgetable, I know that you are patrolling the streets of heaven and smiling down on us. Please watch over all of us.

Even though I never personally met Officer Jones, I do remember him year after year during Police Memorial at Tropical Park in Miami, Fl., he was always there with his motorcycle and all the other officers paying tribute to the others who have been killed in line of duty(my husband Officer Emilio Miyares, is one of them), and for the last 7 years we also pay tribute to Officer Jones.

Officer Jones, thank you for always been there at the Memorials, now we are there to Honor you.

God Bless you

A grateful citizen.

I attended a Motorcycle Instructors course with Rueben. He was really a nice person. It was an honor to know Rueben. Rest in peace brother.

My first encounter with Rueben was as a student in a Basic Motor Officer Inservice Training hosted by MDPD. Ruben always took the time to insure that the correct technique was conveyed, encouraging the students. After graduating and earning my wings, I often saw Ruben at various details and functions in which multi agency Motor Officers were involved in.

You can always spot Ruben in the detail, especially during one of our many stops, saying hi to the other agency Motor Officers and thanking them for participating. I know he's up there in Heaven keeping two wheels up and smiling!

Rueben was my friend for 16 years when I was an officer with MDPD. He was a special person and I always looked forward to his smile and soothing voice when I saw him. Thank you Rueben, I will always remember you.

For those of you who didn't have the privilege of meeting Officer Rueben I. Jones, I wish that you had! Rueben always had a kind word and a smile for those that he encountered. He loved children and focused the majority of his enforcement efforts in School Zones. After Rueben's untimely death a moving memorial service was conducted involving school children and teachers. I know that Rueben, who always dressed to the nines, is "decked out" in his heavenly home. I don't mean to sound cliche but Rueben will be missed but not forgotten.
