Reflections for Deputy Sheriff Jason Schwartz

Jason was in my life in many ways. He was my sister's soul mate and partner in life. He was my nephew's father that he will never know. He was the best friend of my husband who he did everything with. He was the uncle to my two kids who loved him so dearly and looked forward to seeing him and playing with him evey day. Last but not least Jason you were the brother-in-law and friend that I miss so much. There is not a day that goes by that I don't think of you. I miss watching your eagerness and love of being an officer, your tremendous bravery, your love for children including your own, your silly sense of humor, your quirky little smile, your tough side you showed to everyone, but most of all the gentle side we knew. Jason I will never forget you. You are my hero.

Correctional Officer Susan Noel
Colorado Department of Corrections

Deputy Jason Schwartz was my best friend and brother-in-law. He was one of the most generous people you could have ever met. His son was only about four weeks old when his father was killed. It is now my responsibilty and priviledge to tell Baby Jason what kind of a father he had for a short time. Jason was a hero in my eyes and his son will know that his father was killed doing what he loved to do. I out ranked Jason and still I learned things from him. He was an exceptional officer with very high officer safety tactics. Jason if your are out there..I want you to know that I have not given up on the mourning process. I miss you bro and I miss the great times that we had together. Those things will never leave my memory. There is a special spot in my heart for you and you will never be forgotten. I want you to know that your niece and nephew miss you more than anything...they bought you Christmas presents and are leaving them for Santa to take to you in Heaven. Hey me a spot close to you...someday I will be there and we can continue our great friendship where it was cut short.

Sheryl, Jason Jr. 202 and Susan and those in Jason's family that I have not met. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. We pledge to help Jason Jr. learn about the Hero and friend that his father was.

My family was deeply saddened for the loss of Jason, but also for the loss of happiness, innocence, and security that all of you have suffered.

We were all shocked at the further pain that You were made to suffer.

My family will always remember Jason and we will always be there for you. May God Bless all of you and guide you always.

Love 906 and Family (The Padgetts)

Family Of 906

Jason, I will remember you always. You will always be the best cop that I will ever work with. Your spirit is with all of us as we go out there.

Jason, I will miss our late night lifting sessions. No one will ever be as strong as you. No one will ever be able to take a dip of Copenhagen like you. Everything you did was 110%

Everytime I go to work I remember the best cop 305

Love You Man 906

Fly high brother! On behalf of my department, we'll see you there.

At times like these, it seems as if the world is falling apart at the seams. But good people will gather their strength, and continue working hard to make our world a better place. My heart goes out to Officer Schwartz' loved ones. May peace be with you at this very difficult time.

Tina Fetner

Jason was the brother of a dear friend of mine. I have no officers in my family, nor do I really know any personally, so I was unaware of the extent of officers murdered and/or killed in the line of duty...until Jason's murder.
He leaves behind a grieving mother, two older brothers, one younger sister, a wife, and a one-month old son, as well as several nieces and a nephew.
Jason's funeral was the most incredible outpouring of community support I have ever witnessed. Thousands of uniformed officers attended, as well as his family and hundreds of community members and perfect strangers. People lined the streets of town and saluted the hearse as it carried his ashes away to be buried. The police motorcade was MILES long.
Thank you to all the officers out there, and peace to those who have lost their lives in the line of duty. Peace to their loved ones...and peace to us all.


RIP, Jason... 9/24/75 to 9/28/01


All of us within the Chaves County Sheriff's Department wish to express our condolences and deepest sympathy in the death of Deputy Sheriff Jason Schwartz.

Whether it is in the line of duty or from other causes, the death of an officer, friend and loved one is not easy to accept. I hope that knowing that your department and the family of your officer will be remembered in our prayers will be of some comfort in the days to follow.

As a new father, I know that this past month was one of the most joyful of Deputy Schwartz' life. May he rest in peace. My thoughts and prayers are with his family, friends and the Fremont County Sherrif's Office.

The Vow
How could I hide you from hate? I would, though my arms break with trying. Life leans in at the window there With its bag of dark treasures Trying for your eyes So utterly open, so unaware. You will see men smile over blood And you will know there is hate. You may see bombs and butcheries And you will know there is horror. Against all this what I can do? Only vow that before you leave my arms You will know past ever doubting That there is love, too. May you always remember you are loved and your father is a HERO! May your mother know, she is MY Hero and you will both be in my prayers.

The Armstrong Family

I am so sorry that this happened to you. I know you were looking forward to the years you had with your wife and child. You are a hero, and you are now joining the heros that have gone before you, including my husband whose name was also Jason. I was pregnant with his son at the time of his accident. Jason still watches over me and our son Cody. I know that you are watching over your loved ones as I am writing this. My prayers are with your loved ones, because they are the ones who need them right now.

Emily Beal
Wife of IN Trooper Jason Beal

To Jason's wife: If you ever need someone to talk to there are many of us that have shared a similar pain. I say similar because none of us go through it the same. For me it was easier to talk to strangers than with my own family.

Emily Beal
Widow of Indiana State Trooper Jason Beal

Yet another Father shot down before his child even knows who he was; may those twins suffer in hell. These murderers should have been lynched... that would be justice. My heart goes out to the wife and child of Deputy Schwartz.


To the family and friends of Deputy Schwartz, our thoughts and prayers go out to you.

God Bless you

What a terrible time for the angel of death to swoop month after his child was born.

At least, Jason lived to see the magic and to know the absolute sheer joy of fatherhood. I am sure his wife is heartbroken, shattered and lost, and I keep her in my prayers.

God Bless.

This one really hurt to read. Why must this happen? I am a father and an officer. When I look at that picture, I CRY!


May your soul find peace.

Officer John T. Coughran
Fruita Police Department

My heart goes out to your wife and 1 month-old. I know they must be devastated. I hope you find some comfort knowing that i, and every other future law-enforcement individual will do our jobs, and keep the peace, in memory of you. We know what a great job you did, so we will continue the job for you. God bless you Deputy Schwartz

Explorer Justin Betts

Dear Mrs. Schwartz,

I am so terribly sorry for your loss. I, too, am a police widow, and like you I was left with small children. My son was 17 months old and I was three months pregnant with twins at the time my husband was killed 8-8-00. I just wanted you to know that you are in my thoughts and prayers, and assure you that your child will know his/her father through you. By telling your child stories everyday, you will "create" a memory for your child. Our husbands are no longer with here, but their memory and spirit will live on forever through us.

Thank you for your sacrifice, Deputy Schwartz. There is no way to understand what your family is going through, but I will be praying for them and for justice to be served. To his family and friends, please stay strong and trust in God. "Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called the children of God." Matthew 5:9

I will NOT forget my fallen Brothers... of EMS, Law Enforcement, and other fields of public safety. They will be greatly missed. My thoughts are with the family and co-workers of Deputy Schwartz. GOD SPEED!!!
