Happy Birthday Jason! Your Heights friends celebrated you tonight, I know you were with us. I wish I could have celebrated with you. The get-togethers just aren't the same without you. I dream of the day when i can hear your voice and see you and hold you. I still look at my phone thinking that if I stare long enough there will be a text from you. I miss you Jason. I love you....happy birthday.

Jay As I sit here today, I think about you and how much you are missed. I knew I wouldn't be able to get here on sunday so I had to visit today. Don't worry, I will see you sunday too, though. With your birthday in a few days, I had to finally leave a message. I will always remember you teasing me about how much older than me you were. (26 days!!)So as your birthday approaches, I send my love to you on your day. I wish you were here to celebrate. Our family misses you and we pray for you and to you every night. My your day in heaven be filled with as much love that is down here given to you. God Bless you my friend and Happy Birthday.

Thank you for protecting us. You chose to confront this situation with total disregard for your own safety making the ultimate sacrifice. Your courage will live on with others. God bless this blue angel, and family, his friends, and fellow officers. RIP.

Jason, your death haunts us all, I am reminded, dailey of the tragic events that evening, the sickening feeling that overwhelmed us all. Yet, we pulled ourselves up, to continue that very moment, our word of honor to our oath we took. Not to let your death be in vain. My appologies to your family. They certainly did not deserve the cold shoulder they have since come to receive from some. Your dreams live on through us, for they will come true. And for those who have forgotten, it is a tragic shame. For another loss of a brother, you use it as fame.

Jason,
I come back to this page frequently to pay my respects to your brothers and sisters in blue.Time and time again I am blown away by how many new messages your friends and family have left for you.When I read them I cry not only because we lost you but because I know that people appreciate all that you have done for us.I hope the happy memories ease the pain of your family and friends.So many people love you, even people who never had a chance to meet you.Im starting school again, majoring in criminal justice, so I can be a Police officer, You inspired me.I once thought that one person alone could not make a difference but now I know thats not true.I hope that I will have the same impact on the world as you did and will continue to do in spirit. Thank you for everything you have done for all of us.We will never forget you.

JW,
Not a day goes by that I dont think of you. I still wait around at night waiting for the text about where we are meeting up. Im trying to do the best I can in your honor and hope that I can become half the officer and man you were. I know I will see you again someday in the future. Until that day my friend, until that day.

Jay,

As I sit here and read about the most recent officers taken from this world by individuals that have no respect of life. I think of the times we had together while working, hanging out watching football, and riding the motorcycles. I really miss you and will see you again on the other side my brother.

Everyday I miss you; specially now that your picture is hanging up in the hall. You're the first face I see every morning when I open the door and I smile. Love you Jace, will see you again.

Brother, I did not know you, but your sacrifice still touches people everyday. I grew up in Shaker Heights, right next door. I have family in the area still. I was stunned and saddened to hear about your passing last year. I don't know why I am just now leaving my thoughts. Maybe its because 2007 was an eye opener for all of us who have answered the call. They say it was the worst year for police in a long time. I believe it.
But everyday you geared up and went out and protected the citizens of Cleveland Heights. You protected members of my family still living in the area. My friends who live there still. I am able to carry on the fight down here in MD knowing that there are more Officers like you carrying on the fight back home. Thank you for protecting the people I love. Thank you for answering the call.

CHPD, I am sorry for your loss your pain is felt across the nation.
Officer West's family and friends, I am sorry for the pain you are going through. The family and friends are the unsung heroes of police officers. You are the ones who inspire, drive, protect, and help us through the dark hours. You are the ones who worry for us, stay up late waiting to hear from us to make sure everything is ok. Thank you for your sacrifice. Thank you for allowing your son to be a protector of society. Thank you for allowing your son to keep my family and all the others in the Heights area safe. God Bless you and Officer West.

Hey Jason,

I think about everyday when I get in my cruiser, and many times i find myself asking you to help protect me as i go from call to call. Recently, and with more frequency, i find myself in a daze while sitting in my cruiser waiting for a call. while i sit there knowing you're watching me, I hope I'm doing you justice. When i earned your respect and developed a friendship with you, it was truly one of the most instrumental days in my career, because I wanted you to respect me so badly. When i gained that respect, i realized how much more i had recieved; a loyal friend, strong back-up; and a teacher, that i dont think you ever knew how good you really were at inspiring me. I miss you, I will never forget you, I just want you to know that its difficult for me to work in the heights without you, but i'm gonna try like hell to be just like you.

Jason, Not a day goes by that I don't think about you, miss you, love you and wish that I could have had just a few more minutes to spend with you. A part of me is so empty now that you are gone. It is hard to believe that things happen for a reason and that your death meant that there was something bigger and greater that you were to meant to do. God, I miss you. I haven't been able to bring myself to visit your grave. I cannot bare the thought of just looking at you in that way but I know that I need to. Jay we love you and Bob & I are doing the best we can. Please don't worry about mom, dad, annie, grandma and the kids. We are here for eachother and I promise you we will do whatever it takes. Bobby misses you in ways that I cannot even express and it is so hard to see him that way. He goes to the house everyday. Yesterday he started 250dy up...she sounds and runs just as you always wanted her to. Jason, I cannot wait to see you again my friend. I love you! Jennifer

Hey friend -
Your platoon is on midnights this month. I so wish we could have one of our late night talks at the BP right now. I could really stand to see you. I miss you so much.

You would have been the first person to call me Monday night to make fun of the Buckeyes loss. I know you were teasing me from above. You're still very much with me. I love you.

Jason:
I would like to extend my hearfelt condolensces to Jason, his family, and friends during this time.
Your tragic death has been overwhelmingly sad and depressing. I was lucky to have known you and judging by all the responses on here so many were too. I migrate back here to read your reflections as a small way of honoring you! "Only the good die young" - Billy Joel
