Reflections for Police Officer Chris Yung

Officer Yung, although I didn't know you personally I feel like I do from hearing stories from your friends and fellow officers. It's hard to find a person that is held in such high regard by so many. I know that your spirit will live on through the people who's lives you touched with your kindness and compassion.

May you rest in peace and may your family and friends find comfort in the fact that you are in a better place.

Officer Yung stopped to help me find my way to the right court room last year, I was very nervous about being there and his relaxed demeanor and friendly smile immediately put me at ease. My heart goes out to his family, friends and the entire Prince William County Police Dept. Officer Yung, thank you for your service in the USMC and PWCPD. Rest in peace.

As a member of the Bristow community word was quick of the concern regarding the accident at 28 and Target, when it was said there was a PWC Police Officer involved it was sad, when it was said it was Officer Yung and his photo accompanying the release my heart sank. I remember you Officer Yung from your first days at the Police Department as Bate's Dad from Alpha-Bet Preschool. I remember the excitement in the family, your eagerness to share your profession with Bate's class and how much it not only meant to each of the kids but especially my daughter who was sure to never feel fear from a police officer, but only a kindness and caring that your amazing smile can bring. Thank you for your service. To Robin, the children, his brothers, his family (relatives and police), words can never express what my heart feels for you all. I pray you are able to find comfort in the memories you have of what an awesome man Chris is and how that lives on in everything and everyone he ever touched and he will continue to make this time on earth better for what he has already done. All our love.

Chris,

I may have been one of the first Police Officers you met on the Department being you rode with me during your required ride-a-long while in the hiring process. I was immediatly impressed with you to say the least. You asked all kind of questions, most of which usually came from a person with prior law enforcement experience. You showed a lot of excitment about the possiblilty of being a Police Officer and it carried over to your years on the street.

During the 10 hour ride-a-long you told me about your experiences in the U.S. Marine Corps. I remember this like it was yesterday. I asked you what your job was in the Marine Corps and you told me that one was to assist in packaging the bodies of the deceased Marines so that they could be sent back to their families. I respected you for doing such a difficult job and even asked you how you met such a mentally draining challenge and still kept it together. Your reply, "Someone's got to do it and I wanted to make sure the job was done right and my brothers got home." This says a lot about your character and respect for others.

The ride-a-long ended and you went on to the academy for six months. You graduated and were assigned to the opposite evening squad in our district. We worked opposite shifts and may have only crossed paths a few times every month or two; however, every time we were around each other you took the time to say hello and pass along that smile that everyone is reffering to.

Some time in the future your children will read these posts about you and see how many people you have touched. I look at Officer Down all the time and read the posts about the many great officers who paid the ultimate sacrafice but I have never read as many posts extending thanks and respect from people that recieved summonses or were arrested by the officer as I have with your memorial.

You are a true hero and will be deeply missed. Thank you for your service Motor # 4887. Much love and respect, see you on the other side.

I extend my heartfelt condolences to the family of Officer Yung, members of the PWCPD and to all who were touched by his life. It is never easy for those left behind, but when you lose someone so senselessly and unexpectedly we all feel the shock. May it help to know others, as evidenced by all of the reflections posted here, share your sorrow and stand with you. May God bless and be with Officer Yung, his family and members of the PWCPD. RIP, Sir!

I am so sad to hear of this tragic news. My heart goes out to Chris' entire family, all the Yungs, the Prince William Police Dept. and his Marine family, too.

I remember Chris as a young boy in Warrenton when he and my son, Timmy, played on the same baseball team and Chris' dad was their coach.

His big smile and wonderful attitude will be remembered by all who knew him.

Officer Yung was working in the area of Prince William County where my family and I reside and on their behalf I wish to thank Officer Chris Yung and his wife Robin for their dedication to protecting our community.

May God give strength to Robin and the entire family in the difficult days ahead. Officer Chris Yung's sacrifice for the members of our community and the nation he willingly served will not be forgotten.

As I remember Chris I can't help but to think that he would apologize for the pain that his passing has caused. He always put others first and as a result any of us who knew him are better people for knowing him and are saddened by his passing. I am sad to say I did not keep in touch over the years and have now lost the chance. My thoughts and prayers go out to all of the Yung family. It was my honor to work with Chris and to call him a friend.
