I didn't know Julie personally, but if Brian(Waldo) cry's over her, then I will cry over her. How could a lady as nice, and sweet, and smart, and athletic, and awesome as July Jacks be taken away? God, take Julies soul, and bless her. I will forever pray for Bobby and the Jacks family. God bless #940.

Officer Jacks:
We all in Chattanooga will remember your last act of service to this city. I know you are in a better place. Our family will be praying for all your loved-ones that were left behind.

God Bless You


Chattanooga

When i come to the end of the day,
and the sun has set for me.
I have no rites in a gloom filled room,
why cry for a soul set free?
Miss me a little but not to long,
and not with your head bowed low.
Remember the love we once shared,
Miss me, but let me go.
For this is a journey we all must take,
and each must go alone.
It's all part of the masters plan,
a step on the road to home.
When you are lonely and sick at heart,
go to friends we know.
And bury your sorrows in doing good deeds,
Miss me, but let me go.

Rest is peace Officer Jacks, you are now one of God's Beautiful Angels.

Chattanooga, please accept our deepest condolences on your loss of Officer Jacks. By every account, you have lost one of your brightest and most promising young Officers. It is little comfort at this moment, but remember: "IN VALOR THERE IS HOPE". May God bless her and all of you. MSB

This has left the community as a whole stunned,I never had the pleasure to meet Julie,my heart felt sorrow goes out to her family,today like so many I stayed glued to the TV and watched the service,many stood in the rain on the side of the streets to show thier support.
Then I was shocked to find out that one of the nicest guys I've
ever met was her fiance,Officer Bobby Moses,my deepest condolences go out to you.

I have 2 friends living in the Chattanooga area and have just learned of the loss of Officer Jacks. No words can take away the pain of the loss of this fine lady.
To her family and fiancee, may God hold you close and give you peace. Take solace in the fact that Julie was doing the job that she loved.
To her family at the Chattanooga PD, may you all continue to fight the good fight and carry on with the memory of Julie as your standard. It's never easy to deal with things at a time like this, but I'm sure Julie would want you to remember her and the funny experiences I'm sure you all shared.
All of you will be in my prayers.
Gods Speed ...Julie..your sacrifice will not be forgotten.

To the family, friends, and fellow officers

I wish to express my deepest sympathy to you. I can honestly tell you that I share in your grief having just lost a dear friend and police officer in December of this past year when she was hit by a vehicle while working a traffic accident. She was one of my best friends and it still hurts to know that she is gone and no longer will I hear her voice on the radio. The one thing I have learned from this is that I must go on and that this is what she would have wanted because of her love for the job I need to continue doing mine. I hope that you will continue on and carry her memory with you, she may not be here in body but she is with you in spirit and I'm more than positive that she would want you all to carry on and give your all as she did on this tragic day. She obviously prided herself in giving her all having made Rookie of the Year for 2001. It's officers like her that make me proud to do my job! God bless Officer Julie Jacks and all who knew her.

Deepest Sympathy,

Little Sister,

You came after I had moved on. I never had the honor of knowing you in this life, but I know many of the good men and women that I served with thought very highly of you. There is no greater honor than to have the love and respect of your brothers and sisters at arms. I will see you the next time around. Until then...watch over us...we still need you.

As we lay another brave warrior to rest It brings back the sad and painful memories of the day we walked the same path. There are no words to be said that can ease the pain. Even as you find the years starting to come and go your heart will always be a safe haven for the memories can never be taken from you and the love will never die. We miss our soldier in blue as much today as ever before but we know he had a job to do and gave it all for all of us. To all who walks this path God be with you. .........

God Bless you for the service you gave. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Rest easy sister.

I KNEW JULIE FOR THE SIX YEARS WE ATTENDED OOLTEWAH MIDDLE AND HIGH SCHOOL TOGETHER. IT HAS BEEN OVER A YEAR SINCE I RAN INTO HER AND CHATTED BRIEFLY WITH HER. SHE HAD NOT CHANGED A BIT. SHE WAS THE SAME FRIENDLY, CARING, AND HONEST PERSON I KNEW 8 YEARS AGO. TO THE OTHER 3 AMIGOS---YOU HAVE LOST SOMEONE VERY SPECIAL, BUT ALWAYS REMEMBER THAT YOU WERE BLESSED BY HER IN YOUR LIVES FOR 20 YEARS. SOME PEOPLE GO THEIR ENTIRE LIVES WITHOUT EVER HAVING A FRIEND LIKE HER. SHE WILL TRULY BE MISSED, AND WILL ALWAYS BE REMEMBERED. CONDOLENCES TO HER FAMILY AND FRIENDS.

"A Part of America Died"
Somebody killed a policeman today,
and a part of America died.
A piece of our country she swore to protect,
will be buried with her at her side.
The suspect that shot her will stand up in court,
with counsel demanding his rights.
While a young soon to be husband must work,
and spend many long, lonely nights.
The beat that she walked was a battle field too,
just as if she'd gone off to war.
Though the flag of our nation won't fly at half mast,
to her name they will add a gold star.
Yes, somebody killed a policeman today,
It was in your hometown and mine.
While we slept in comfort behind our locked doors,
a cop put her life on the line.
Now her ghost walks a beat on a dark city street,
and she stands at each new rookie's side.
She answered the call, of herself gave her all,
And A Part Of America Died.

May family and friends comfort one another in a tragedy such as this. And may we all be stronger. We need more heros like Ms Jacks. She was an asset to our community and city. This incident has touched us deeply as a community. And we mourn the passing of such a wonderful person.

Another hero snatched from us in the prime of life, it seems so sensless, I know Billy (JCSO EOW 11-13-01) greeted her at the gates of heaven and is giving her all the necessary particulars, being the detail person he was. I come to this site every day, and pray that no other names will be added, and at the same time knowing that as long as evil exists, there will be new names... To her family, friends and fellow officers, may God hold your hearts in His loving hands while you begin the healing process, she is patrolling streets of gold with God's finest, Rest in Peace Julie, you will never be forgotten...

My heart just ached when I read of the senseless death of this young police officer. The first thought that ran through my mind is the heartache and pain that Officer Jack's parents are feeling at this very moment. It is a pain caused by grief and there is no medication that can be prescribed by human doctors for healing. My prayers are with them, her sisters, and her fiance. I am so sorry they are having to go through this.

The Chattanooga Police Department has lost one of the best. Officer Jacks was one of those officers that you looked forward to seeing her come through the doors to the Property/Evidence section. It was a pleasure to have known her and worked with her. She will always be missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with Officer Jacks, her fiancee, Officer Bobby Moses, her family and friends, and all of her Brothers and Sisters in blue that worked with her on the streets of Chattanooga. Julie will never be forgotten.
