Damn brother! I just hear tonight about your passing. I am heart broken. I don’t do social media so I lose touch with some brothers. I wish I could’ve done more to have kept in touch with you but I had my own demons I was battling. We were in Iraq together and Twentynine Palms, Ca. Gone but not forgotten! Semper Fi!

John 5:28, 29 - "Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out". I pray that everyone can find peace in knowing that we will see this officer as well as many others again in Paradise soon. Until then, please accept my condolences.

Hey J.

Woke up this morning thinking about the times you made everyone smile in our shift. The time Jessica and my wife met (both pregnant). I know you didn't know at the time, but I had never been fishing until the day you and Barkley invited me. We were out on the lake all day and didn't catch anything haha... Feels like it was JUST yesterday. I miss you dearly bro....

Visited you two days ago, brother, on your anniversary. Hard to believe it's been 2 years already. I miss you all the time, every day... my EOW tattoo a constant reminder, as well as the pictures in my home and my son who bears your name. I shared an "us" laugh with E the other day - we don't laugh like that any more since you were taken - and we never laughed like that with anyone else. I'm at a loss brother, I still can't believe you're gone... I want to pick up the phone and call you, just to hear your laugh and you to tell me "let me call you right back", both of us knowing "right back" will be 2 to 5 days later. You are forever in our hearts and minds, Jermaine. I love you, brother.

2 funerals in 2 weeks for fallen Officers brings to mind how life can just end before you least expect it. Every time I hear about an officer pass it always takes me back to that awful night you left us to go to a better place. I know we should all take comfort in knowing you are in a better place but I can't help and be selfish wishing you were here with Jess and Jr. So much has happened and so much has changed. I know how much JD misses you. It breaks my heart every time he needs a friend and you are not around. You were the only true friend he ever had and he misses you so much. I know you are watching from above and it pains me to know that you are sorely missed. Just know that you are not forgotten and that you are always present in our hearts and our minds. We visit you often and speak of you always so that everyone will remember you and the awesome person that you were. Keep watch over us until we met again. Missing you and thinking of you...

R.I.P. Jermaine, I remember seeing you around the city always saying hi to random people making sure they would have a great day. I could never forget the day i heard about your accident. Wondering if everyone involved was ok, not knowing all the details. I remember the next day at the academy, there was a gloom around the room. A feeling of sorrow from everyone there including some who knew you personally. Much love and respect brother. I know your up there watching over all your brothers and sisters in blue.

Happy 30th Birthday J Gibbs! I am so thankful you visited me in a dream last night. I woke up on this hard day with a smile on my face. Thank you for that. I needed it. I know you are in heaven, making everyone up there laugh but God, how I wish I could hear your laugh right now. I wish we could be driving like old times listening to Case, trying to sing. I still laugh thinking about the first time we went to the pier together. I had a coughing spell and couldn't stop. You just laughed at me the whole time. If we could rewind time, I would stop and re live everyday I had with you. Today, I looked at pictures. Yes, I cried. Jermaine, I miss you. Now, when madden comes out every year in August who can I buy the game for??? That was always the only thing you wanted every year. Just know... I hold so many moments so close to my heart and at times I play them over and over just to feel close to you again. Again, happy birthday jermaine. I love you.

A dear friend...

It still doesn't seem real. No matter how many times I've heard your name called out at the memorials this month - Sacramento, D.C., Riverside... and even CPCA in March - I still expect to see your name on my phone when it rings. I miss your laugh and jokes, our conversations about anything and everything...

Jermaine, my Brother. I miss you. You are my friend and my partner. I want to thank you for all your help. I had a lot of seniority on you but you had so much more knowledge and abilities. We all loved having you on our team, you brought life and laughter to Law Enforcement.

We will meet again someday.
