Julian, although you left us many years before I was born, my grandmother and my great-aunt (your sisters) spoke so highly of you and felt such a profound loss at your passing. Your widow remained an integral part of our family and later became my god-mother. Coming from a family of dedicated Chicago Police Officer's who served with honor and integrity, we are extremely proud of your service, yet saddened at the personal loss of a much loved son, brother and uncle. Rest in peace, Uncle Jules.

I received your original nameplate from the Superintendant's Honored Star Case at 11th & State today. I'll have your star number added along with your bio and have it mounted on a custom display stand. Thank you to the Chicago PD History Committee and the Memorial Foundation for giving us this memento of you.

You gave your life befor I was born but I still feel as if I know you because I remember the sadness in my Grandmother's voice when she spoke of you and your courage. Your legacy is that many of your relatives are now or have been involved in law enforcement.
