Reflections for Police Officer Jason Scott Ellis

Jason, thank you for your service. You will never be forgotten and I await the day that the cowards that killed you are captured.

You are not forgotten and hopefully all agencies will not rest until your murder has been solved. I pray for that and for peace for your family (both biologically and in blue). You are a hero and God had bigger plans for you but you are missed dearly.

My heart, and my prayers, go out to the family and friends of Jason. Although I didn't personally know him, I feel as if I do. This remains a tragedy and for many a, "why". I will never understand how someone can kill, and especially a person who puts their life on the line daily. His death was a tragedy and I hope that soon, someone is brought to justice for taking his life. God Bless you all.

I used to live in Kentucky and now reside in North Carolina. I remember when Officer Ellis was murdered. It broke my heart and brought me to tears learning he left such a young, beautiful family behind and seeing Figo paying his last respects. It still does. I've thought often about Officer Ellis and hope that one day soon the truth of his death will be learned and the person or persons responsible will be brought to swift and firm justice.

God bless you, Officer Ellis.

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.

To the Ellis family I am deeply sorry for your loss. I know words will not lessen the pain but I want to relay my condolences to your family. Thank you for your service. May the memories of the good times help undergird the family.

Tonight I was watching a show on the ID channel about a woman that went missing and they featured Deputy Ellis and I just wanted to share this. I lost my husband in the line of duty he was also the K-9 handler/Owner of (Garrison EOW 2016). I retired Garrison after the loss of my husband, I do believe he mourned as much as I.
I pray they find who ambushed and took such an Officer of the Law from his wife, children and extended Family and the community. Please know that I really care and my heart breaks for you and your family.
RIP...

As I pass by the cemetery on a daily basis my eyes always glance over at the high rise tomb stone that was placed at your grave site. It towers over you with the guardian angel carrying you in his arms imprinted on the side of the tomb stone. I can’t help but be remembered of that call and knock on my door soon aftr your murder. Driving to the scene, seeing you there on the cold pavement. Words can’t express those thoughts of emotions. You were a good friend and coworker. It saddens me to think of your family living this life now without you. I try to check on them from time to time for you. I made it to retirement and as I’m not on the street anymore it saddens me I can’t get out there and help search in that matter for your killer. I will never forget you no matter where my life from here will take me. I know your Resting easy with God. I will see you in heaven one day and you will have been made “Whole” with no signs of injuries as the Bible speaks. That I looked forward to my friend.

This is the thank sour law enforcement officials get for their years of faithful, dedicated service. How shameful that anyone would do such a thing. I hope they catch the perpetrators and that they are fully punished.

This is what has become now. Random assaults on our LEO'S by cowards. Thank you for your service my brother. May you rest well in a better place and watch over your loving family. That evil animal will one day be judged on earth, or before going to hell.

My condolences to the Ellis Family. But being a resident of Kentucky and not to terribly far from Bardstown, KY this case bothers me terribly. As a retired law enforcement officer I know random things happen and stranger things happen than a random killer. Could what happened on that exit ramp have been some random killer targeting anyone or even just a cop hater that targeted the first Police Officer that exited? Sure I suppose. But lets first aknowledge if it is truly that random the only way the killer or killers are going to get caught is if they do it again and make a mistake. This has more of a personal feel in my humble opinion. It seems very well thought out and planned. To make sure it was only Officer Ellis to exit even implies that perhaps Officer Ellis was followed from work all the way to the exit ramp with at least two killers or accomplices perhaps communicating by some manner. Sure being late at night reduced the risk of someone else exiting but not totally. It feels personal like Officer Ellis cost some drug dealer to lose a lot of money in a drug bust or something else personal. I won't speculate on family or colleagues let us hope it was not any of them. So I will focus on criminal elements. If Officer Ellis was killed because of some case or some criminal he was pursuing then the ultimate killer of Officer Eillis is already on record in case files. Likely the killer hired folks though. So if Officer Ellis was murdered because of his job the killer is known to police even if they have not connected the dots to tie the killer to the crime. Folks out their know the answer and it eats me up. They are family members of these killers that have to suspect yet they live their life even taking their hypocritical selves to church all the while being able to help and not doing so. Shame on society shame on these folks. Good Day.

Officer Ellis, I hate that it has been this long, and is still unsolved... I wish that the coward(s) that did this unthinkable act would come forward and clam to what he or they did. I know that it would bring some kind of closure to your family Jason :( It's sad that your life ended to soon and your sons lost their dad :( May God be with your family Jason to bring them comfort through this.. I know they know that they have a guardian Angel watching over them.... I have your picture and information as the cover of my Facebook, I put it up there like the day after your murder and I informed all my friends that I wouldn't take it down until they find the person(s) that did this to you.. RIP Jason, thanks for your service... Sherry

Thank you for your service, bless the beautiful family you leave behind. Such a senseless act upon a servant of the people. I pray for the capture of the one(s) that committed this crime, before any other innocent persons are harmed by their hand. The fellow Kentucky communities feel the sorrow that this small community feels.
