Answering the Call

Another day has come and gone and the thin
blue line has become a bit thinner.
Another sister has been lost in the line of duty
because of some crazed sinner.

The calls were dispatched one by one just like
they were on any other day.
This Officer responded with courage, guts and honor
as she went along her way.

Not knowing what lay in wait or whom she was about to meet.
Just answering the call of someone in need at Vine Avenue and Kilmer Street.

The call was answered just like all the others and her response was exactly the same.
“I’m en-route to answer the call.” There never
was anyone to blame.

Each call was completed with pride, joy and honor.
These traits exuded her soul.
This was her last call as her life was senselessly taken.
Her family is now left with a tremendous whole.

The law enforcement family must pick up the pieces
and continue to answer every call.
Not knowing when the next one shall suffer the same
and incur the very same fall.

You’ve finished the race well. You’ve given it all.
You’ve done your very best and answered your last call.

Now your assignment and beat in heaven has
changed just a bit.
So spread out those arms while your new
angel wings are fit.

Hold your head high and spread those wings wide
We know you’re protecting and standing right by our side.

You were called home and you’ve been assigned a
new beat from your heavenly Father God.
Protecting those in uniform left behind in green, brown,
and blue, as we continue to fight the battle each day
that we trod.

You will never be forgotton Julie, It brakes my heart to visit the site and see another fallen sister leave us her wondering why. You are a true hero to all of us that wear the uniform. Your passing will never be in vain, you only strengthen our resolve.

Julie stopped a vehicle for me a week before her death. I will never forget her enthusiasm for being a cop. This was a job that she loved and it showed.
Police officers are like troops in an army who march off to battle every day. They fight a never ending battle and do so with pride and courage. Julie, you performed your duties as a true warrior and did so with pride and courage. Rest easy sister.

OFFICER JACKS WAS A MEMBER OF A SPECIAL FAMILY. A FAMILY OF POLICE OFFICERS, E.M.S.AND FIRE SERVICE PERSONNEL. SHE WILL BE GREATLY MISSED BY THOSE OF US IN HER FAMILY WHO ARE LEFT BEHIND BY HER TRAGIC LOSS. AS A FORMER POLICE OFFICER AND MEMBER OF BOTH EMS AND FIRE SERVICE. I SEND MY SINCEREST SYMPHATHY TO THE FAMILY AND HER DEPARTMENT. MAY GOD WATCH OVER, AND BE WITH THEM IN THEIR TIME OF NEED.

When I come to this page, it very little, I found a officer who only worked in Law Enforcement, for only 2 years. I have been in the NYPD for 15 years, its the best!! All the officers are the best!! Looks like in your picture, you are holding an award, looks like you worked hard for it!! RIP!!

I work at a hospital in Chattanooga and I saw Officer Jacks several times and she was always very nice and very courteous. My heart is broken for her and her family. I wish I could have known her better. She is hero to us all and I cannot say thank you enough to her for giving up her life to protect us. She was my age and it is very hard to see a young life taken this way. God had a plan for her and her work now is in Heaven. Thank you Julie.

We smile when we think of you and all the things you’ve done

We laugh at all the joy you’ve brought and all the battles won.

We are proud of your accomplishments and the uniform you wore

To comfort the scared, to protect the weak, for this we love you more.

You gave your life in sacrifice in the pursuit to brighten our darkest days.

You held the line against evil, and for this we shall give you praise.

We hurt because we miss you, we hurt be cause we care

Though you may not be by this way again we hope to meet you there.

So fill the heavens with song and praise and save for me a dance,

There are those who cry because they knew you… I cry because I was never offered the chance.


God bless,

I was deeply saddened to hear of the loss of Officer Julie Jacks. I have watched her on Cops and thought that she was quite an officer. Her family is in my prayers. It is such a tragic loss. My husband is an officer and I worry for his safety daily. Being an officer is the most selfless job. Thank you Officer Jacks for your hard work and dedication. May you rest in peace in Heaven.

Officer Julie Jacks you were one of the bravest people that i have ever met. You always had a smile and a nice word for everyone. You were firm but also gentle and everyone that you met, you have touched their hearts in one way or another. You have the love and respect of the whole Chattanooga community. You risked your life everyday to protect our community and we appreciate that, your death was not in vain, and you will be sadly missed and greatly loved always and never forgotten. there is not a day that will go by, that my heart will not hurt from your death. We all will feel the pain from this for the rest of our lives, but we must try and go on and make you as proud of us as we are of you. We can not put into words what you meant to all of us here in Chattanooga. My prayers go ot to the family and friends of Julie, and also to the Chattanooga Police Department and the whole Chattanooga commnity. Officer Julie Jack, rest in peace and may God Bless you!

Julie, you were a great friend and an exceptional officer. Your inward and outward beauty and kindness will forever be missed. We spent so much time growing up together and learning about life together. I will miss you more than words can ever express. The world lost a great officer on monday, but I lost a much greater friend. I Love You.

My husband worked with Julie Jacks. He and I both thought alot of her. I always admired Julie.
My husband and I are expecting our first child. Julie was over joyed at this news. I hope our little girl is like Julie, strong and compassionateat the same time.
We love and miss you, Julie.

Susie Moseley
wife of Chattanooga Police Officer

Words can't express the way I feel right now. Everytime I hear a police car,and fire truck I say a little prayer because they are the one we call for help in a time of trouble. She may be gone here on earth, but her memory still remain in our hearts. We may not understand why she had to be the one to go. The Lord said her job was done. He needed another angel so she was the one offer.
My hearts go out to the family& friends of Ms.Jacks. She did a good job. Your work I gladly thank-you for. We just don't know how blessed we are.

REST IN PEACE "WARRIOR JACKS"

"...weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning." Psalm 30:5

It is so sad to yet again hear of a Police Officer killed in the line of duty so that others may be safe. Though I never met officer Jacks, after reading the accounts of what happened and after hearing what an extraordianry person she is, I feel like I have known her for a lifetime. I can not begin to imagine the pain and sorrow that her family and her co-workers are feeling right now, but they are all constantly in my thoughts and prayers. Officer Jacks is a true inspiration to all of us who yet remain to fight the good fight. My heart is truly saddened at this tragic and sensless death. May God shine his perpetual light upon you Julie, and you may rest in eternal peace. We will never forget you!

God Bless you and your family in this most difficult time. Until we meet in a better place.............
