Reflections for Police Officer Julie Rochelle Jacks

I don't live far from Chattanooga so even though I didn't know you I feel like I did. I think about what it will be like when I enter into my law enforcement job after the academy. I know I will be afraid at times, but I know you are in heaven right now watching over us at all times. I would never want to imagine the pain your family and friends are going through. I am so proud to watch you on COPS.

AS I TRAVEL PAST THE MEMORIAL FOR FALLEN EMERGENCY SERVICES PERSONEL IN CLEVELAND, I REFLECT ON BADGE 940 WHO PEOPLE IN CLEVELAND GREATLY MISS. I KNEW HER THROUGH FORMER CLEVELAND OFFICER AND NOW TBI AGENT MARNIE CORBITT., ONE OF JULIE'S BEST FRIENDS. HERO'S ARE NEVER FORGOTTEN. TO JULIE'S FAMILY CLEVELAND WILL ALWAYS SHARE YOUR LOSS.

Your life was taken on my birthday Julie. Because of that I will never forget you or the sacrifice you made. You lived as a warrior and you died as a warrior, you have my undying love and respect.

Rest easy now sister.

What a tragic loss of such a bright star in humanity. She began an early career in law enforcement by patrolling heaven with St. Michael.

We all share in the grief for the loss of our sister officer, for we are all a family of the badge.

Take heart in knowing that she died serving others, the highest form of selfless service. God bless her, her family, friends, colleagues and loved ones.

She is a true heroine.

Be safe.

Officer Jacks,

I was just watching COPS when I saw a name I recognized. I had only hoped that I was mistaken. Granted, I never had the honor to meet you, but from what I saw, you had a lot of passion for the job. I share that same enthusiasm and think of you and the countless others that are taken from us too soon. God bless you for all that you have done. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

PLEASE AS OFTEN AS YOU CAN CONTACT BECKY(JULIE'S MOM), JUST TO LET HER KNOW YOU STILL CARE.

One star can guide a ship at sea,
One word can frame the goal.
One vote can change a nation,
One sunbeam lights a room.

One candle wipes out darkness,
One laugh will conquer gloom.
One step must start each journey,
One word must start each prayer.

Julie, you did make a difference! Knowing you made the world a better place.

"Remember Me"
(song by Deanna Edwards)

Remember me whenever you see a sunrise,
Remember me whenever you see a star,
Remember me whenever you see a rainbow
Or woods in autumn colors from afar.

Remember me whenever you see the roses
Or seagulls sailing high in a sky of blue.
Remember me whenever you see waves
Shining in the sun.
And remember, I'll be remembering you!

Remember me whenever you see a teardrop,
Or meadows still wet with the morning dew.
Remember me whenever you feel love
Growing in your heart.
And remember, I'll be remembering you! ~


Not a day goes by that I don't think of you and miss you!

Jules, your birthday was Friday. You would have been 27 years old if you were still here with us. In my heart you will always be here. We had a celebration of your life with family and friends. We couldn't let your birthday pass without some kind of acknowledgement. It turned out to be a wonderful night. There were tears. There was laughter and joy. There was healing and peace. God blessed us all with many beautiful memories of your days here on earth. We miss you so much. I love you Jules.

I VISITED YOU ON YOUR BIRTHDAY FRIDAY MORNING. AS I WAS GETTING BACK IN MY CAR, WILLIE NELSON HAD JUST STARTED PLAYING ON US 101. WHEN THE SONG WAS FINISHED BEAR MAN SAID THAT YOUR MOTHER HAD REQUESTED THE SONG BECAUSE IT WOULD HAVE BEEN YOUR 27TH BIRTHDAY TODAY. I CRIED. I MISS YOU. IT GAVE ME A GOOD FEELING TO HEAR THE SONG AS I WAS LEAVING BECAUSE I STILL HAVE A HARD TIME WITH YOU BEING GONE! YOU'RE ALWAYS ON MY MIND! LOVE YA!

I have only worked in dispatch for three weeks now, but in that short time and thanks to the ride a long program I have met some very good men and women officers. One thing I heard from each of them was how great an officer Julie was. And with tears in my eyes, I deeply regret never getting to meet her. Everywhere I go in the Communications Center I see reminders and memorials for our angel of justice, Julie Jacks. And though I never met her, I know her spirt is with me every time a person shares a story of Julie to me. And the more stories I hear, the better aquianted I get with Officer Julie Jacks. Yes, you may be gone, but you are no where near forgotton. I swear, as I begin my career as a Chattanooga Dispacher, that I will do the best job I can to show that your death was not in vain. Keep our seats warm in Heaven, we will see you soon.

Police Officer Julie Jacks ~ thank you for the beautiful life you lived and for your attitude as you continued to build your dreams. You are greatly missed by all who knew and love you. Rest in peace!

It doesn't seem possible that it's been 8 months since Julie was killed. Sometimes it's still hard to believe that she's gone; her death has left such an empty place. I do believe that she lives on in our memories and that her spirit will live forever in our hearts. As our minister said at her funeral, she was a bright and shining star that burned out much too soon.....We can let a little of that stardust fall on us and hold onto and treasure the precious memories that she left behind.

Thank you so much for the wonderful reflections left here on this Memorial Page. Each memory is cherished and helps ease the pain. Just knowing that so many people care and have acknowledged her ultimate sacrafice is a great comfort.

May God Bless You All

We miss you still Julie. Merry Christmas

Julie,

The first time I met you I was doing a ride along with Bobby and I was so impressed by you. You and Bobby received a domestic call involving a drunk. We all arrived on the scene, you gave the drunk several chances to find a way home but he refused and became aggressive and argumentative. You and Bobby had to fight with him, once cuffed he refused to walk so you and Bobby carried him out of the house. Once outside he became even more aggressive kicking and refusing to get into the car. You picked him up with little assistance and put him in your car. I was so impressed with you. I realized that someone of stature could handle a man of the size anyone could do it. There were times in the academy and still times now I think I can't do something I think of that moment. You gave me so much inspiration and determination. I have your picture in my car so that I can see it everyday to remind myself of the kind of person you are and what a GREAT police officer you were. You are truly missed Julie by all of your brothers and sisters at the CPD and you will never be forgotten. God bless you, your family, Bobby and friends. THANK YOU.

"Yes I Can"

Can I do this job? Yes I can,
and just as good as any man.
I'll be there for you when you need me,
and roll around in the bar ditch if need be.
Night and day go by,
and it seems that their is not enough time to cry.
End of another shift and I lie in wake,
Hoping that I will make a difference on the next call I take.
God, what can I do to help end this sorrow?
Make an example of myself so that others will follow?
That is the answer that I have been looking for,
God, now please give me the strength to go through that door.
Hurry and don't fall behind,
We've got criminals in here to find.
Come on ROOK, we've got things to do,
By the way, I was Rookie of the Year too.
Can you do this job? Yes you Can.
And just as good as any man....

Another officer has fallen but not in vain. My deepest sympathy to the family, friends and co-workers of Officer Jacks. May you find strength in your heart and may the Lord comfort you during this time.
Rest in peace for your watch is over.

Hi Officer Jacks,

I was in the police academy when this happened. All law enforcement officers love you as a member of the family. With all the cadets from different areas we grieved and prayed for your family. You were an insperation to all of us. We trained hard and was proud of you for all the efforts that you gave in your battle to make the world a better place. I hope that I can be as brave as you were. Remember how special you are to have worn that badge and represented your department. You will go down proud and go up to Heaven safe from all the evil that is on this earth, which you where trying to control the day that God took you home.RIP
