Leave a Reflection

Reflections for Police Officer Jessica Ann Nagle-Wilson

Officer Nagle-Wilson,

Today, on the 21st anniversary of your passing, I came across your memorial page. I was intrigued to see the large volume of reflections left for you over the years (30 pages). You were certainly much loved and cherished in life, and much missed in death. I'm saddened to read that your life came to an abrupt end due to the cowardly act of another. I will pray for your husband, your family, friends, loved ones and colleagues. Rest in Peace

Greater love has no one than this, that a person will lay down their life for their friends. - John 15:13

My heart is breaking…20 years and 4 days since I have seen you alive. We had lunch at Apple Annie’s. I can’t remember where I ate last week but I can remember 20 years ago. In fact I can remember the day you left us as if it was yesterday. Time does not take that away. The pain and loss is controlled but days like today make it very hard to hold it together. We will be celebrating your life on Sunday so I better get my <redacted> together.

You are loved, you are missed, you are remembered

Love and miss you forever

Officer Nagle-Wilson,
On today, the 20th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for the citizens of Hazel Park. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest deepest sympathy.

It’s been 20 years since I cleared that neighbor trouble call with you and we said, “See you on the next one.” I wish I would have known then what the next one would be, so I could of taken that call instead of you.
I played that Kenny Chesney song today, like I do on this day every year; “the only thing that gives me hope is I know I’ll see you again someday.”
Hope you’re watching Three’s Company and having a cold beer.

You know

Jessica I can't believe it's been 20 years. It seems like just yesterday that we all were working at Ferris together. I still remember that day on the drive home after working mids and hearing what had happened to you. As I walked out of the department this year for the last time I thought of you and wished you could've enjoyed your life as it was supposed to be.
Many dogs are thankful that your tradition was continued through my career. I'll never forget.

Where did the time go? I can’t comprehend that it’s been 19 years since you were taken from us. I know we say it often but I can remember it as if it was yesterday. We get signs that you are still with us which helps us get through the rough times. We will say a toast you tomorrow night.

You are so deeply loved and missed.

Love and miss you forever

I can't believe nearly 2 decades have passed since you left this world. In all the changes it often feels like you're right here alongside us all, laughing, comforting and guiding us when needed. You're sorely missed and thought of often...

Happy Heavenly Birthday!

Today you would have turned 45 years old. It’s so hard to believe at it’s going to be 19 years since you left us. I went to the cemetery to plant flowers and couldn’t help but think that’s it’s not right that this is how we have to celebrate your birthday. You should be here with us

Love and miss you

A bird came to my window this morning and for some reason I thought of Jessica and discovered this page. We were friends at OU before she left to become an officer. I was so proud to hear what she had accomplished. I think about her all the time. Much love to all her friends and family.

It is with great respect to Police Officer Jessica Ann Nagle-Wilson, her family, her friends, and the Hazel Park PD, that I will run the 2020 National Police week virtual 5K Run in her honor. I'll run carrying the thin blue line flag in Chesterfield, Michigan to help spread awareness that we are better people, we have safer communities, we have better lives because of the service and sacrifice of LEO's like Jessica. RIP 233
Thank you,

I’m so Sorry !!! I was living on East. Pearl street when you lost your life. I remember you patrolling are streets. I was around 19 yrs old when the day came. I’m praying for your family, it’s so stupid that you could lose your life over a dog call!!! Senseless act.. We should have had a hanging in hazel park to the lowlife who took your beautiful Soul.. God bless you and your Beautiful.. To your Family, I’m so sorry and I know it will never get better. But you will be with her again.. God bless

I do not know you. In fact, I was just in the 3rd grade when you gave your life for your community. I am now a police officer myself. I was recently listening to an audio book by Lt. Col. Dave Grossman called "On Combat". He spoke of your heroic actions on that day in 2002. I am grateful he shared your story in his book so as your sacrifice and actions will be honored. You are a true hero and warrior. You are an inspiration and I will be certain to remember your name and share your story. God bless your family and loved ones.

It’s been awhile since I’ve posted but a day doesn’t go by that I don’t miss you. I don’t think that will ever change. It’s hard to believe it will be 16 years. It still seems like it was yesterday. Father Bob is having Mass and then a Memorial at the Station in the 5th. I have to say, the auxiliary has been so good to us. We are fortunate that way.

Continue to watch over Dad while he is still healing.

Love and miss you always,

well jess, I am almost done with my master's in clinical mental health counseling. I know it's a different path from my original dream. but, I still think you are proud of me. I look for you all the time, in places, faces, and everything pure and true to my heart. I loved you so. You would like my 4 year old Anna Maria. She is sassy, just like you were my dear.

God bless you, Jessica. The Lord called upon you so quickly. His need for your help must have been due to an even greater mission of peace that awaited you.
