Reflections for Corporal Jason Anthony Makowski

Thinking about you and the many stories I've heard about you over the years. I wish I would have had the opportunity to meet you, but I'm sure we will eventually meet. Until then, we're still fighting the good fight out here.

Think of this day often. Tragic loss of life, Jayson. My brother in blue.

I hope Jayson's family knows we think of him often and fondly.

I know Jayson knows.

All officers, please stay safe.

God's speed, warrior.

Rest In Peace…you’ll never be forgotten. I know I met you when I was very little; so I don’t remember you very well. However, I know how much you meant to my father. I never saw him cry until the day he lost you. You were one of his best friends. You were an amazing officer and guy.

Thinking about you tonight from far away in CO. I think about you and your family often, almost weekly, pleasant thoughts while driving alone with the radio off or when I see a scout car.

We will never forget you.

R.I.P My dear Friend. You ll never be forgotten. Thank you for everything,

It's sad that in the world there are some jobs which are never appreciated, nurses, teachers and Law enforcement. A sad picture where a law enforcement Officer not only nurses the worries of a society and teaches honor, integrity and selfless service to whomever under his / her wings is the most misunderstood, underpaid, Misappreciated of all. A job that is not a job but merely a Calling. while serving honorably, teaching honor, integrity, honesty, and true care as an angel in Blue uniform or even undercover, is not an easy task, and can only be truthfully appreciated by the Lord Himself.
Officer Jayson A. Makowski You are one of those Angles by the Lord's side now, you were and always will be remembered as a Great Friend, Great Police officer, and most of All A GREAT HUMAN. Thank you for great memories, laughters, friendship and being a great Teacher of Humanity.

Your Legacy shall and will live on.
Please give all my best prayers to all the Fallen Officers by the Almighty Lord's side.
May God Almighty Bless you, your Soul & those years, hours & minutes you lived by us on this earth, & May He Shower upon you His Grace, Mercy and everlasting Love.


Down below is written Your Rank & Name.
How can anyone even mention a Rank when overwhelmed by Angels of Peace, integrity, Honor, and selfless Service ?

Just a civilian

I am friends with Cam and I know it’s been a long time but i just hope everyone knows that he is strong and is an amazing friend. He told me many stories about His dad and he thinks the world of him. Even though he didn’t have his father in his life for a while he knows what he did and thinks of him as a hero. He is doing really well now and I hope everyone effected by this is doing okay and will continue to live on in his honor.

It's been a long time Jay but it doesn't seem that long ago that you, Tony and Rick would be at the house for a bit getting ready to workout as you often did. I always looked up to you guys growing up. I remember getting the call at work like it was yesterday. Today reminded me of you as I told your story to officers who had never met you. It's a constant reminder of why great men and women wear the uniform, because there are only a select few willing to run into danger rather than from it. We need more people like you Jay.

Mako, it was a pleasure to have worked with you and to have served beside you, especially being able to call you my friend. You made every day a little brighter, you made every police situation safer and you never hid from danger . Thank you for paying the ultimate sacrifice. You were not just a hero on that day, you were a hero every day. Your legacy lives on, and you will never be forgotten.....

Ran into someone that knew you too the other day and have thought of you ever since. We reflected on some of the funny things you used to say and do. Can't go into a starbucks without thinking of you. I hope that Cameron has healed and the rest of your family as well. I know they will never forget, as none of us will either. Still remember that night and where we all were....
Rest in Peace Jason. Bless your family.

Today is the ten year anniversary of your EOW, and we remembered you. Your police family had a wonderful memorial today at the station. Cameron and Carrie attend. Cameron has grown so big and he is a handsome young man. I never got to meet you but as a part of your police family I will never forget your sacrifice. RIP
