I did not know Officer Yung but my heart breaks just the same for his family and friends. It's always a tragedy when a young life is lost but even more so when that life was a protector of all that is good. Words are limited when the loss is so great. Thank you Officer Yung and to all public servants who risk their lives everyday for us.

Thank You for being a great protector of the L.E.U bicycle riders. As a member and riding many miles you did a great service to us all by keeping a protective guard around us. Thank you my friend and you will never be forgotten.

For Police Officer Chris Yung:

The amount of danger that surrounds the law-officer on patrol is multiplied when he or she is on two wheels. Constant vigilance is not enough and the odds are always against us. We regret learning that Chis is the next law-officer to be counted among those who become a statistic in traffic.
We pray for Chirs' family, friends, co-workers and all those who care about him. May they be ready to reach-out to one another in the time of need.
We are proud to render Officer Chris Yung, a soldier-of-the-law, a final salute.

It is difficult to put into words my condolences over the loss of an officer of the law, someone who swore an oath to uphold the law in a brutal society. I am really sorry for the death of Chris Young.

I had the pleasure of meeting officer Yung at the first battle of Bull Run 2012 (Re-enactment) of which I was a participant. The event had ended and re-enactors were filing out which were many, thousands to be precise. The police (PW) were on site doing traffic control. I along with my group (Artillery Command) decided to stay one more night knowing it would take hours to just get to the pavement that Sunday afternoon. I happened to be camped near the road on site during the event the entire weekend. As I sat in front of my tent watching the traffic slowly go by, Officer Yung rode up and parked his bike within feet from where I sat and got off. We talked for what seemed to be about 30 minutes. The traffic moved very, very slowly so his attention was mostly on our conversation. During our conversation as I recall he answered his radio a couple of times, which were the only interruptions that occurred. Due to the situation, his presence was mainly a visual effect for those leaving the event. Our one on one conversation is one I will always remember. Here is a Motorcycle Cop in full dress talking with me as though he were a normal regular guy. I can honestly say that he was enjoying our conversation as much as I was. An extremely nice gentleman. Our talk was general although I joked with him about coming out and doing an event with us. We spoke of History and he seemed very interested in it. It was like I was talking with one of my fellow Historians, just an average Joe. When I heard of this, I didn’t have a picture to look at only a name and I knew it was him. Just tonight I viewed a photo to confirm it was indeed Officer Yung and it was. My message here should be clear. I only met and talked with Officer Yung for a short time and I can say without a doubt, he was a very friendly individual; we spoke as though we knew each other for years. Even though he was in that uniform, it was as though he wasn’t. This left an impression on me I’ll never forget. My family has lost some one whom was a Police Officer, so I know first hand the loss the family of Officer Yung and the community are going through. May Father God Bless each and everyone affected by this tragic loss. Father God Bless Officer Yung and his family during this time along with all of our fallen Heroes … Amen

I remember when Officer Yung would come to class with his children and was just starting out in the police force. He was a great dad and husband. My thoughts and prayers are with Robin and the family. Rest in peace.

Chris God has chosen you personally to protect the heavens. He decided he needed someone brave, someone w/ integrity, he needed a true warrior, but most of all he needed a protector. You exemplified all these qualities while you were here this short time on earth. You were handpicked for your loyalty, your dedication, your faithfulness, your courage but most of all because of your selflessness to serve and help others any way that you could. You are promoted from Officer Chris Yung to Guardian Angel Chris Yung. I wont worry while im patrolling the streets because i will always have backup watching from the heavens. You dedicated your life to serving others from the United States Marine Corp to the Prince William County Police Department because you truly cared for people and now I know your dedicated to serving God now. Your sidearm is now a sword, your ballistic vest is now a shield, your motor is now your wings, your uniform is the armor of God, your badge is now a halo your beat is now heaven and Im glad that you will be protecting us. Now take you place next to Saint Michael as you protect us who dedicate our lives to protecting others. R.I.P Officer Chris Yung a true friend Motor 4887 Out of Service

Your work is done here on Earth - Heaven has called upon you today, leaving so many words left to say. But now it's too late, for your time has come, words unspoken; I am sure everybody has some. Regrets and wishes are probably there too, but lasting forever are memories of you.
There have been many times that we waved to each other, but we were there for each other in time of need. Now it's time for us to say Good-Bye, until we meet again in heaven to fly. Now go and Patrol the Heavens Above and Watch Below those you Love. Thank you for your service.

Chris, it is truly awesome to read all of the wonderful things people have to say about you. You truly lived each day to the fullest putting others first and serving the citizens of this county. Chris, your smile was infectious, your heart was big, and your shoes will be hard to fill. You lit up a room whether it was your mere presence or the great “Chris Yung” stories. The stories will live on as you had quite an influence on those around you. If each of us could take a piece of your kindness, your selflessness, your desire to serve others and let it live within us, this world would be a better place. Your family is and always has been apart of ours. We have it from here.

After our car was stolen, Officer Yung came to our home to take our theft report. He was perfectly professional yet projected comforting warmth during an anxious, upsetting, and fearful time. I remember being very impressed by Officer Yung's exceptional demeanor. He comforted my children by giving them plastic PWCPD pin badges. He reassured us that the police would be actively searching for our vehicle, and we know they did because the car was found a few weeks later. I am so deeply saddened that the police force has lost such a shining example of service and that Officer Yung's wife and young children have lost a precious husband and father. If there is any comfort, perhaps it is in knowing that their loved one was a stellar person who leaves behind a tremendous legacy of positive impact on thousands of people like me.

Chris,

I want to thank you again for everything you did for me. Luckily I had this conversation with you in person prior to your untimely death. You were a wonderful FTO - you taught me to always do the right thing, go the extra step, and do everything by the book. You were hard on me and I needed that. You put up with my mistakes and told me what I was doing right. My learning curve was a long one but you gave me the foundation for becoming the officer I am today. I remember going on calls with you and how you just had a certain way with people. You loved this police department and this job more than anyone I know. You were so excited to go to the motor unit, but I know how much you missed D Squad after you left.

The love you had for your wife and children was incredible. You were always talking about where you were taking your kids this weekend, what the next family vacation was, and showing off pictures of your little ones. The marriage between you and Robin serves as an example for me and my husband. I remember asking you if Robin ever had a problem with your late hours and activities and trips with the squad. You told me "no, she has full faith." You deserved every bit of it. Everyone knew of your dedication, faithfulness, and love for her and your family.

There is a lot of media attention on your right now. We all know that will go away very soon. The love your police family has for you will never die. Your memory will always be kept alive by those that knew you. Thank you for all the fun times with the squad, for being a mentor and friend, for everything you taught me and so many others, for being the perfect example of what a police officer should be. Rest in peace, brother. We'll take it from here.
