Reflections for Officer Jason West

J,
Just was thinking about you today. I know Christmas is coming up and I know your family wishes you were here. All of us do. I look at your picture on my bulletin board everyday when I come in and everyday when I leave to remind me what all of us are all fighting for. I miss you bro. My prayers are with your family and always will be.

It is always sad when someone , is "Taken Away" , from Family and Friends at a Young Age , but especially so when they are just trying to protect the innocent.

No Parent expects to Bury "Their Child" , it is an Un-natural circumstance , in the Natural progression of Life.

Through Illness , is understandable , but still sad .

But Loss , through anothers Mal-adjusted lifestyle , is Unforgivable.

Jason, everyday I see a picture in my office of me, you, Kerr, Mav, and Mick on graduation day, and I can't help to think of the days we would spend upstairs at CHPD studying and mopping the floors. You know what I mean. You will not be forgotten. Always thinking of you. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.

Yes, I was at the Ohio State game. You would've already called me to rub in the loss. Well...Michigan lost too - so there! I miss you calling me and rubbing in the Buckeye losses. Thinking of you always.

This morning many are already gathering in your honor. Watch over us as we celebrate your life by doing one of the things you loved the most....riding motorcycles. There is no doubt you will be riding with all of us today in our hearts. We miss you and love you.

Jay,
I was going through my old things and came across my old concert tickets. I found the Metallica show stub we went to at Gund Areana in 2004. That was the last time we got to hang out before I moved. Its crazy its been 10 years since college, but we did have very good times at Tiffin. I will stop by and visit when I come back to Cleveland in September.

Jason. I know i haven't been on and written you in a while. I am sorry. I started working full time at an office. =]. Another officer was killed Sunday. And It just makes me think of you even more. Not a days goes by that i don't think of you and your family. Not one day. I have these dog tags my daddy bought me with your badge number and initials on them hanging in my car. Your family is still in my prayers. Jason, Please continue to watch over everyone still. They all miss you SO much more then anyone can image. I get teary eyed just typing this and I didn't know you. But i do know some of your family. They were so nice ! I can't wait to see them again !

xoxo Melissa.

I don't know if anyone from Jason's family still comes to visit this page since it is more than a year ago that he was lost. But to me, it happened only this evening. I was preparing for a Sunday School lesson when I happened upon a picture taken by Officer Jim Larkin and started reading his blogs.

I just read about the lose of Officer Jason West and wanted his family to know that even though I live far away (I lived in Houston, TX when Jason was shot and I live in Liberty, MO today), I am so grateful for the young men and women who stand daily between the "Scum of the earth" like the person who shot Jason and families like mine.

I am so sorry for your lose, yet so grateful for all that he gave. I pray that the Lord has comforted you and that you have found peace. And I hope you know that Jason lives on, not only in the memories of those who knew him, but even in those who will still come to know him, like me.

Most important, he lives on with our Father in Heaven and will be there to greet us all when we arrive home as well. May the Lord bless you and continue to strengthen you I pray, and may you feel the love and caring of those of us who care because Jason gave so much for us.

i turned in my car and was a little sad. i used to pick you up in that car, and it just felt like another tie to you. i know you'll still be riding with me in my new car...but i was still a bit emotional.
i miss you so much that it hurts.

Jason, A year ago yesterday was the day when everything happened. It was also Memorial day. I was thinking about you this whole weekend. I know this was hard for your family. And their in my heart and prayers. We miss you here. I wore the shirt with your name on the back in a badge to school today. =] Its my favorite shirt. I just wanted to let you know that i was thinking about you and your family.

Its been a year and this is the first time I could actually bring myself to type something in here. We went riding yesterday and for much of the ride my thoughts kept wandering back to all the times we used to ride together and how every time we passed under a bridge we would rev and crack our pipes. Brought a smile to my face and I tried to keep up the tradition as often as I could. It was a great day and a nice ride, wish you could have been there with us in person instead of just in spirit. We really miss you man. Please watch over us and keep us all safe.

J:
A year has passed and I just wanted to thank you for your service and example. My little daughter and I stopped by your grave today and it was obvious from the flags and flowers many did too. She remembers you Jay... She revealed to me while we were planting a flag that late at night when she cant sleep occasionally she talks to you. I was speechless for a moment and then smiled... I bet you love that and I know she does too. God bless you Jason and thank you for all the help then and now!

Law Enforcenment personnel spend so much time dealing with individuals who are not receiving adequate mental health treatment.

Worse - so many of us become victims to the senseless violence displayed by such individuals.

Officer West, May Your Soul Rest - In - Peace.

One year has passed and I'm sure everyone is hurting today. We are all thinking of you. I have said several prayers for you, your family, and CHPD brothers on this day. We all miss you and are thinking of you. Rest in peace brother. Look out for us as we continue the fight!

J,
It's been one year today since you were taken from us. Time passes quickly, but you will never be forgotten. I did not get a chance to make it down to the memorial this year, but you and your family are in my prayers often.
