Reflections for Deputy Sheriff Hagop Jake Kuredjian

Thank you for your service Sir. Your heroic actions will never be forgotten. I am truly inspired by your courage and willingness to serve your community. Moving towards danger in order to protect the lives of innocent people is remarkable. You served your department with pride and honor Sir. You risked your life so others can be safe. I will always pray for you and your family. Thank you for providing 17 years of outstanding service to your community. You are a true hero Sir and an amazing representation of law enforcement as a whole.

I will never forget about your heroic actions Sir. You will always be loved by your community and by your law enforcement family. Rest in peace Sir.

Almost 18 years ago and your sacrifice has not been forgotten. One can only imagine the amount of bravery and resolve you showed on that fateful day when you simply went to go do your job and back up your partners...you serve as an example not only to me, but to law enforcement as a whole. Always keeping in mind what you lost, who lost you, and what will never happen without you serves as motivation to uphold your legacy of service.

It provides some solace that you were able to live out one of your passions as a motor officer for the station and use your seventeen years on the department to make an impact not only on those you personally interacted with, but those like me who did not have the honor of working alongside you but can read your story and be inspired. We will take it from here sir...Rest in Peace.

Jake: It’s been a long time since you were taken from us; you left way too soon. We were in Academy Class 222 together, and were assigned to Wayside. I attended your memorial service with deep sadness. RIP brother.

Hey Jake- Lee and Cam and I think of you often - always with laughter, the Beach Team was more fun because you were on it - La Salsa tacos for breakfast before we hit the beach, and the In-N-Out truck at the station during the fires -

Can't ride in the Bu without thinking of you, your smile and hugs. Miss you my LASD brother - always -but especially today.

Yesterday a Deputy from Sacramento joined your team up there - Robert French - he was taken the same way you were - welcome him... and Keep Watch over us.

Jake had a smile I'll never forget. He was dedicated to deliver the best service to the citizens he served and to his fellow deputies. As a motorcycle rider I was proud to see Jake mounted squarely on his bike. Jake was that kind of guy you will always remember. God bless you Jake.

I worked with Jake at Wayside. He was a great guy and good friend. I was jealous because he always got to work the Rosa Parade. he is truly missed.

I remember that awful day and will never forget. I was one of the many involved that day, and saw the worst. Jake was a great person, and was a deputy I worked with for years. He always had a smile, and had a genuine love for the people he worked with, and the community he served. It is hard to believe 14 years have gone by.

I was a friend of Jake, we worked the same station. We went on motorcycle rides together on our Harley's. He was always full of life and loved people. I miss Jake and often remember the good times.
