Leave a Reflection

Reflections for Police Officer Julie Rochelle Jacks

You crossed my mind today so I returned here for "a visit", and was somewhat shocked at being reminded it has been 20 years! I know for your family and friends who have counted the days since, it has been every bit of 20 years, however it was still somewhat of a shock for me to come here and see that date again. But then I remembered all of the law enforcement training classes I have instructed where I told of you and your story and I had to concede it must have been 20 years. I know only of you through these "reflections", and having the opportunity some years ago at a conference to hear from some of your instructors of how good an officer you were. I've also done some additional research of your incident. Combined, I hope I was able to accurately convey to my recruits both the content of your character and the circumstances of May 6, 2002.

Thinking of you this evening inspired my curiosity to do a "youtube" search, for which I found several postings regarding you, the most insightful being entitled: "Officer Julie Jacks #940". If anyone reading this "reflection" has not seen it, I urge them to do so. It illustrates so many things that people fortunate enough to have known you, have written here about you.

I hope you know the ripple effect your life created. The "reflections" people continue to post here after 20 years is one example. Just from my training classes alone, the recruits who know of you and have had their careers enhanced by you is another, which can probably be multiplied by various academies multiplied by various states. I hope your family and friends also know how influential you have been and continue to be for all of us that never got to meet you.

Again, thank you for your service and to your family and friends, thanks for sharing Julie with our profession. We are the better for her.

Julie's friend wrote this, it describes Jules perfectly... "In a blink, our lives were permanently changed. You were always the brave one, headstrong, showed no fear. You were always kind, gentle, and cared so much for others. You were always up for an adventure, never let anything get in your way, and just enjoyed life. I miss your quirks and even your attitude, sometimes. Most of all, we just miss you. Love you Jules."
