Reflections for Police Officer Justin David Sollohub

Being brave, isn’t about not being scared…Being brave is doing what you must do, even when you do feel scared. May you be remembered for the love and care you gave to all those you came in contact with. I pray that your family be comforted by God with his tender love and peace. Thank you for all of the service you gave that only YOU could give. God bless!

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.

It is said that as long as a man is remembered, he never truly dies. This is especially true of Officer Sollohub. The reflections shown on this page definitely speak volumes of the man that Officer Sollohub was. As a Criminal Justice student at Jacksonville State I have stopped many times at the small Officer Down memorial in Brewer Hall that shows Officer Sollohub, along with two other CJ graduates, to reflect on my calling to become a Law Enforcement Officer in the future. I can only hope to positively impact as many lives as Officer Sollohub has, and I pray that my career will honor the men and women who have fallen in the line of duty. Thank you for being an inspiration, Officer Sollohub. Rest Easy.

I met Justin's parents at the Memorial Wall this year at Police Week, during the Police Unity Tour ride in. What beautiful people they are. Justin's name is on the same line as my father-in-law, Eugene J. Deckert. Both enrolled in 2012. The stories that are shared at that memorial are so heartbreaking, and yet the grief that is shared is a blessing to each survivor. We are not, and never will be, alone. RIP Justin. You are deeply loved and will never be forgotten.

I am grateful we still have my dad, as he spent 26 years "protecting and serving", but it still grieves my heart when one who stands on the thin blue line falls. It is senseless that these things happen, just like the 2 officers shot in the line of duty this past week in Mississippi.

I pray for all of those fallen, but mostly I pray for those they leave behind that have a hole in their heart that will never fully be filled again...

The loss of one officer is one two many, the sentence is appropriate there is never closure in a case like this. The officers parents are left empty and void sad ending to a promising future.

Officer Sollohub,

You are remembered with great admiration. I visit ODMP regularly to reflect on the service and sacrifice of our law enforcement and their families. Thank you for also for being an organ donor. I pray that the healing process has begun for your family and your police department.
