May God shed his grace on Dave and his family. Rest in Peace, my brother.

PO Doug Eatherton
St. Louis City Police

Cowards die and they are gone, Heros go to Heaven and are remembered forever. To kill someone over a DUI is insane and they will get lawyers to try to explain their actions......To the family and friends, we all cry tears of sadness at such a senseless crime, he will remain in your hearts and memories....Deputy Jones, thank you, he surely would have killed someone innocently driving home from work...Rest in Peace...
KY Peace Officer

Patrol Officer #1222
Haltom City PD

At the beginning of every shift I supervise, myself and the other officers on shift dedicate the shift to the memory of a fallen officer. Tonight, January 27, 2003 we dedicated the shift to the memory of Deputy David Jones who died while we were working yesterday. Although we did not know or work with Deputy Jones, when one law enforcement officer falls, we all stumble for a while, but we will carry on.

Deputy Jones' sacrifice will never be forgotten.

Sgt. Paul Bissonnette
Royal Canadian Mounted Police - Surrey, BC

You gave the ultimate sacrifice. You may be gone, but you will NEVER be forgotten. We are all family in this job, sometimes we are the only family each other has. In pace requiescat, Rest in peace! Keep a watch on the rest of us as we go on shift each day.

"When you were born, you cried and the world rejoiced. Live your life in such a way that when you die, the world will cry and you will rejoice." (American Indian Prayer)

Officer Kimberly Moses

Sometimes we can do everything right on a traffic stop and still things can go south. Know that your chosen profession was one that not many can do. In the end, we will always have eachother. God bless you Deputy Jones....

Deputy Holthaus
Kootenai County Sheriff's Dept & Fort Lewis Military Police


Confrontation in an alley. The Centurion does not yield.
But this time the good guy loses;
there is blood upon the shield.
And the mournful sounds of bagpipes
play out across the land,
drowned out by the sobs of a lonely young wife
and a child too young to understand.
While the killer pleads his case in court,
the thin blue line is one man short.
And we're one step closer to society's fall;
another cops's name is engraved on the wall.
Another state funeral, with an army in blue,
and we know it could've been me and it
could've been you.

We all look ahead to what the future has in store,
front line troopers in a country that's at war.
At war with itself and at war with its cops and we're out
there every day 'cause the battle never stops.
It's not the way it is on TV shows or like
we learned in school; no cool music in the background,
no playing by the "rules".

We're disillusioned warriors,
but for right we'll always strive.
We just pray that at the end of our stress-filled day
we'll get back home alive.
You stand out on the corner
ignoring the insults and the stares,
close to the point of believing that no one really cares,
when a six year-old boy walks over after watching
you for awhile, reaching out to shake your hand,
on his face a friendly smile. To him you are a hero,
a protector of our land, and he wants
to learn about you,
as a cop and a man.
And when he asks you why your badge is covered
by a black elastic band,
tell him about our Brother--
A cop who made a stand.

Peace be with you!

"Blessed are the peacekeepers..........."
May God keep Deputy Jones in his loving arms and keep his family safe during this heartbreaking time. Thanks, my brother for your sacrafice. You will not be forgotten.

Sgt. Al Whitney
Yuma County Arizona Sheriff's Office

God be with the family of this fallen BROTHER as well has his extended "family" within the department. Heaven has another angel looking out for our law enforcement.

M Claytor, Dispatcher
Albemarle Co/Charlottesville VA

Rest easy hero your watch is here is sadly over. May God give your wife and children as well as your fellow officers the strength necessary to get through such a sad and tragic time. Your kids will always remember you as a warrior and a hero in blue as we will, your fellow Police Officers here in New York state.

A brother in blue


God Bless you may you rest in peace.
Your now a Guardian angel. God needed more help and he picked a True hero!

Firefighter Jack Patterson
Norfolk Fire rescue

My Heart go out to the family and friends of Deputy David Jones. Rest my brother your tour is over.
