I remember working with you like it was yesterday. You loved the Patrol. You served us all well and seemed to enjoy what ever moment in which you found yourself. Rest in peace brother.

As the fall approaches it reminds me of time gone by. I travel to south Texas for deer hunting and the monte reminds me of you. Many days you and I walked the brush cutting sign, working C15, or Port Laredo. Even as I work toward the downward slope of my career I try to hold myself to your level of motivation and joy in just being allowed to do the job. I hope I have made you proud and did all the things you would have done. Thank you for always being a friendly reminder of why I'm doing this job. See you soon Jason.

Today, as I ran my usual post work route to Union Station, I came upon the Police Week event preparations my thoughts drifted to you again. You were being honored today as you have every year since 2001.

I resigned my position as a BPA six months after your passing and it was a real struggle, in part because of the sacrifice that I knew you made; how do you walk away from such a responsibility? We talked many times about our plans beyond the patrol but no matter how tough a day was you never gave anything less than your best. No longer in uniform, I landed at HQ and have spent the years that followed trying to ensure that agents following in your footsteps have the better equipment and training to do their job. I have spoken of you many times in those years and you never fade from my memory. I read through the messages from years past and I see many names I recognize. You obviously had a lasting impact of so many of us, the least we can do to honor your service and friendship.

Rest in peace Jason.

April 04, 2014 has come and gone Police Week is fast approaching and I sit here reflecting about all the Agents I've worked with over the years, the memories, the good times, the bad. There are a lot of guys that I miss, but you are one that I think I miss the most. You inspired so many Agents, excepted every challenge and succeeded. I will forever remember you as one of my guys. You were a great young agent, but an even better member of the human race. Until we meet again my friend-watch over us and keep your brethren safe- FJB

Border Patrol Agent Jason Panides was remembered this year in Washington D.C. at Police Week 2013. His Border Patrol family will always remember his outstanding work ethic and Service to Country. I am glad to have worked with Jason at the Laredo North Station and wish he was still patrolling the border with his Border Patrol brothers. We celebrate his memory along with all fallen Border Patrol Agents and wish his family well. Jason was a superior agent and partner.

I cant believe that it has been 9 years since you left. I was just looking at some of these reflections left for you and your family over the past few years and it is great to see that people still take the time to remember and honor your life. You were a good friend and an excellent agent. You are still and always will be remembered.

It's been a long time since I had seen you when I got the bad news 9 years ago today. I remember the old days with the boy scouts and camping trips. Since then I have met a few guys you worked the line with in Laredo. And not supprisingly they had nothing but great things to say about you out west. Keeping the gun slinger dream alive knowing your keeping watch over me while I work. See you on the other side.

Jason, Happy Birthday. I'm in the field today, and as always I have you with me. I'm glad you are my Silent Partner. RIP Brother.

On the eighth anniversary of your death I wanted to thank you for your service and sacrifice and to say how sad it is to see you taken so young from your family and friends.

We don't take the time to thank our officers for the work they do until it is too late. We frequently forget the Border Patrol Agents and the thankless tasks THEY have out there keeping us safe from who knows what!!!

Bless you Jason,

I come to this site from time to time and am always glad to see people still care and remember. It seemed that with the passing days since you left you were being forgotten. I remember. I am at the academy now and have taken advantage of the new SILENT PARTNER program. I, too, now carry your card and make it a point to assure you are remembered with the newer sessions at the academy.

GOD bless you and Deborah.

The other day I was assigned a silent partner so that I will never be alone in the field. I am honored that you are the one who is going to be by my side through thick and thin. I was given a card with your photo and information about you to carry with me on duty. I have had the card with me both on and off duty since the day I got the card. I was looking at it today and was thinking about the sacrifice you made on 4/4/01 as well as all the long hours you put in pushing groups, and protecting America. I noticed today is your birthday and wanted to get on and let you know that you haven’t and never will be forgotten. I ask that you please keep an eye on your brothers and sisters who wear the badge and keep us out of harms way. Rest easy brother we have the watch.

I will never forget the last time I spoke with you in the parking lot, who would have thought that would be the last time. You were always the life of the party. God bless you and your family. You left such an impact on everyone you came in touch with. I think about you from time to time and think of what we all lost that day. Rest in peace buddy.
Your Friend,

As I look at the faces of the men and women here, I see the faces of my co-workers. I can imagine each of them shooting the bull and swapping war stories at choir practice as the meat sizzles on the grill. I see them laughing, pranking and teasing their fellow agents, as we often do when we relieve stress. I wish that each of them were still here to share the good times.

And I feel compelled to look at each of the faces here and remember…to remember that each of them made the ultimate sacrifice in service to their country and we should NEVER forget them or their service.

Too often the sacrifices of those who serve our country are overlooked or casually dismissed by the very public they served so selflessly. But WE should never forget them…each and every one of them. May they each rest in peace eternally in God’s loving embrace.

Hey Jason, we still miss ya!
