Reflections for Correctional Deputy Jeremy Wayne Meyst

Every Christmas Eve I post a written memorial of your life and service in a support group I run for the spouses and fiancees of fallen law enforcement officers (and a few firefighters too) called Blue_Wives_Matter which is also the name of my 501(c)(3) nonprofit. Your wife Sarah has been a member of our support group since it began several years ago. I came on odmp to look for your badge number and saw that no one had posted to you since 2019 which made me sad.

I thought I would post a small update on your wife and kids. Sarah works a lot lol but always makes time for the boys and their extracurricular activities aka their sports! Josh especially is skilled at football and last we spoke Eric was enjoying travel baseball. Sarah is also involved and getting support (as well as offering support) through C.O.P.S. You would be so proud of your family.

Thank you for your service and for the ultimate sacrifice you made. It is my mission that you and other officers like you who have passed away, not just in the line of duty but of any reason, are never forgotten.

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.

You are thought of constantly.
Talked about daily. Missed always.
I cherish the years I was given with you. I am lucky to have gotten 11 years by your side. Your boys are spitting images of you and as they grow to be young men I stand back breathless some days when I see you in them in the randomest moments of the day. I know you are always watching over them. ALWAYS! I love you Jeremy. #54

On behalf of my family, I extend our sincerest condolences on the grievous loss you suffered when Jeremy was killed.

To Jeremy's family, my heart goes out to all of you and may you find comfort in your loved ones and your strength in your faith. When my son was killed, the entire law enforcement community in our area embraced us in a circle of love and support, and I know you will receive the same support. It makes the unbearable less torturous, and I pray for your solace.

This reflection is sent with the utmost respect for the dedicated service Deputy Meyst gave to his community and the citizens of California, and for the supreme sacrifice he and his family made on December 24, 2013.

I have no words to give each of you, to help erase your pain or ease your grief. There is the shock that will pass, then you are left with the reality of your huge loss.
You will find support from within the Department. Please reach your out your hand and accept it.
Jeremy was a "Stand up Cop", He represented Tulare County Sheriff's Office with pride and honor.
Always remind his children - he died a hero to many.
All of you are in my heart, thoughts and prayers every day.

On behalf of the Westerville, Ohio Division of Police, our thoughts and prayers are with the immediate family of Correctional Deputy Jeremy Wayne Meyst and the extended law enforcement family of the Tulare County California Sheriff's Office. Rest in Peace brother and watch over us.

I fight not for glory or fame, for they are momentary. I fight for those who can't. I fight for Justice. I fight for the oppressed and the down trodden. And if I should lose my life for these just causes, then I have no regrets, For I serve to protect the innocent. It matters not where or when, for evil knows no boundaries. Be it fire, flood, or the threat of tyranny, I will not flee. Justice is my weapon. Faith is my shield. Hope is my armor. Cry not at my passing, for it was my Honor to fight for you. Shed not tears of sorrow, But tears of joy, for now, I stand with God.

By Jon F. Hooper
