I am the wife of one of Jason's best friends - My husband is also a CHPD officer. Jason was a wonderful man, a best friend, someone I cherished very deeply. He loved life and he loved children. My 6 yr old daughter called him her very best freind. He is a man distinguished by his exceptional courage and bravery. I miss him and I love him. We pray for Jason, his family and the family of officers aross the country. I pray that not one more life will ever be taken from us again. I love you Jason.

It takes a special type of person to answer the call to protect and serve. To be part of the brotherhood we call the thin blue line which separates the good people in our society from the evil ones. You answered that call every day with pride and honor. You are a hero and heroes never die. The coward that took your life will pay in this life and definetly in the next. Your sacrifice will always be remembered. May God bless you and your family.

I am so sorry for your loss. The thin blue line, just became thinner. Your work will not be forgotten. I lived in Cleveland Heights in the early 70's, just a few blocks from Severance Center. I went to Millikin Elementary School. Another angel earned his wings. May He watch over your friends, family and brothers and sisters in blue.

Rest In Eternal Peace P.O. West

Heroes get up each day,
To dress in blue,
They patrol our streets,
Watching our cities,
Keeping us safe each day.

Making a difference,
We often over look.

How many have we forgotten?

How many are gone,
Lost in the line of duty?

We wait 'til it's too late,
To acknowledge all they've done,
To give them our respect.

The least we can do,
Is give them their due,
Before we lose another,
Hero dressed in blue.

You will be truly missed. I went to college in a small city near Cleaveland Heights many years ago and so I am aware of the area you worked. Now I live in an area that has been hit hard by many Line of Duties this past year and so we are aware of what your Department, town, friends and family is going through. You, your family including your family in blue will remain in my thoughts and prayers. Join those who went before you in keeping an eye on your brother and sister officers that remain here on earth working so hard to keep us all safe. Thank you for your service.

Law enforcement officers are, indeed, a special breed of people. Ask anyone on the street and they will tell you that they would not have our jobs for anything in the world. It takes something special to do what we do and at the same time be able to even contemplate retirement. We try to be optimists. Unfortunately, there are a few of us who will never make that date with retirement. By the very nature of our job, we are at risk everyday of losing our lives, either at the hand of some deranged individual or in some other situation that we, by virtue of our occupation, may be unable to avoid. Some people have recognized the hazardous duties we involve ourselves in, the risks we take, and the pride we take in accomplishing that job. There is National Law Enforcement Week, dedicated to us who gladly accept the responsibility of protecting the citizens in our respective jurisdictions. National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Day is dedicated to those who gave their lives in the line of duty. These are but two examples of remembrances specifically for law enforcement personnel. Remembrances that come but once a year. We should remind fellow officers of another type of remembrance, one that will last a lifetime. Sooner or later, a doctor will pronounce us dead. It is inevitable. Regardless of whatever happens, death is the end we will all have to face.
