So hard to believe it has been 12 years. Jared left such a legacy but his own words describe it best. Miss you brother, not a day goes by.....
Jared S. Jensen - - - Police Academy Entrance Essay, 2002
The traits I feel I already possess to be an effective police officer include keen observation skills, good physical health and sound judgment. However, I think the most important traits I can bring to the Colorado Springs Police Department are my commitment and passion. I have the commitment to do the job as I have been trained to do and to continuously better myself as both a police officer and as a citizen of the community. I have the commitment to be unwavering in my promise to uphold the law, protect the rights and safety of others, and to defy all forms of corruption. Along with my commitment I have the passion to take all necessary and warranted risks to help others.
My father instilled in me the will to always go towards danger to defeat it rather than to simply seek out my own safety. I can recall in my childhood when he would rush to the aid of victims of a nearby car accident or when he would leap over the pews at church when a parishioner was suffering a heart attack. I even remember a time when he raced down an alley in Chicago to chase off two men who were beating an elderly man. I do not seek to face danger to emulate my father or to be a hero. I am willing to face danger simply because I was raised to do all I could to help others.
The promise to protect and serve is not something I will take lightly. I will be unmitigated in my devotion to my training. I will have the commitment to continue to seek out all the knowledge available, and thereby continuously improve my effectiveness as a police officer.

February 22, 2018 has been trying to say the least. The is always spinning, it seems to have ramped up the tumult, pain, outright hatred and violence. There is so much ...I know you know a peace beyond understanding...and would be doing your best to contribute to peace keeping here on earth if you could. I'm sure you have noticed the coming together, stepping up, support and heroism as is a sacred bond, a calling and mission shared by those who take the oath - and for those who walk with them...
I miss your smile - your laugh - your life here...humming along to "when I get where I'm goin"...

With love,

We were thinking about you tonight and remembering it was your birthday. Sending much love your way.

Starting to get ready for the 2018 Ride. Will be riding for you and your family again this year. Last year my good friend who is a chief of police was visiting the Springs. He attended (crashed the party is more accurate) the Peace Officers dinner. I sent him a message to look for your brother figuring there was a slight chance that they would run into each other. A Jersey guy half way on the other side of the country had little chance of running into Jeff. I got a photo about two hours later of my friend and Jeff sharing a beer. Small world. Glad they got to meet and let Jeff know the Jersey guys are thinking about you and your family.

Keep an eye on us as we ride to DC and watch over us so that we all finish the ride at the memorial.

Love you beyond words.

you never got to meet my kids.. They go to the elementary school next door to where the park is named after you. They can't believe their dad knew Jared Jensen. I tell them about you often and that you lived a life of sacrifice and honor. Working to make this world a better place. You are missed everyday and I can't wait to see you again.

Happened to come across this page and I have read 24 pages of comments so far. Cannot stop crying. So sorry for the loss that has so devastated all of you. At least Mr. Jensen is with him now. Prayers for the rest of you!
And lots of prayers for the protection of Jeff Jensen, still in the profession. God bless you all.

After so many years and so much energy spent, the finish line is in sight. Thank you for the strength and encouragement. I'm sorry it took so long the wait will not be in vain. My heart and prayers are with you and yours always.

Sending love,faith and eternal gratitude for what you have been and continue to be in my life. Could never have imagined this world...thankful how your light continues to shine, to bless amidst so much dark... because it has been so very dark at times. Guess that's when faith enters in and socks it to ya, huh? Your laugh,your jokes, your understanding and compassion continue on with so many who carry your torch... I am holding to a hope and promise ... always,

I ride again for you this year Jared. Your mom, Ken Jordan's sister and your old chief met me at the wall last year at the end of the ride. This year Natalie will ride for you again as well. We will meet at the wall and share stories. Keep watch over us as we make the trip from our start off points until we reach the Memorial.

I am Honored to ride for you and your family again this year.

I sit here, a blubbering mess remembering that horrible day. So many memories and so many more made. You were an amazing man and an amazing police officer. Your family has been an absolutely bright light in my life. I miss you and know you are watching over me as I work.
Thank You

Jared, It has been awhile since I last paid my respect to your memory, for that I apologize. I never forget those who help shape my life. The brief time we spent as sector partners in sand creek was a time I will never forget. I was faced with some life altering events. Those events showed me those who cared and those who judged from a far. You helped me with a simple ride home when you had no obligation to do so. That was enough for me to forever offer my thanks. I am doing very well now. I have become a federal investigator and took sole custody of my two boys. My oldest is in college and the youngest will soon follow. I know if you was still with us you would have accomplished great things. Rest easy and know you will always be apart of my thoughts.

Jared, just thinking about you and your family today. You and I shared a patrol car at the Stetson Hills division. I still remember how you always left it clean and refueled for me as I started my day shift. You liked your healthy energy bars, I remember an occasional wrapper lying around from time to time. I read Jeff's reflection on your 40th B-Day and was sad to hear about your dad's passing. His heart was broken when you were reborn into your new life. My heart went out to him and the rest of the Jensen family when I read his reflections. His profound statements had a significant impact on me and I'll never forget the way he pondered on the last time he saw you and your last phone conversation. He was a very wise man who inspired me to have a new appreciation for God's blessings. I was honored to have met Mr. Thomas Jensen as well as your sister. You and your dad are together now catching up on all the lost time that you should've shared here. I'm sure you answered all his questions about what happened on Feb 22, 2006. Your dad had a lot of "why" questions and now he has his answers. I'll always cherish the commemorative coin he gave me in your honor. Enjoy your dad and give yourselves a tight hug from me.
