Jason, it's been six years and we still hurt. LEI has not forgotten you and Maros and we never will.

Officer Crisp gave me tickets at Uwharrie National Forest and Wilson Creek, both in NC. One for not putting a fire out properly and the other for a firearm violation, which I deserved. He was very courteous both times and we knew each other on a last name basis from our several interactions in the wilderness. I'm saddened to hear of his death and wish his family the best.

I recently met Crisp’s mother in one of the campgrounds along our information trap line while on a fire assignment in Alaska. I was saddened but honored she chose to share Jason’s story with me. It’s a reminder to many of my fellow firefighters and LEOs to stay vigilant when dealing with bad people in the woods.

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.

Over here in UK I remember you and Maros every day, when I put on my memorial bracelet. Like many others on, I was touched beyond words to read about your story, and have to admit that finding out that the bracelet would also bear a paw just about broke me up. It's a thing to remember, that you don't have to be a 'front-line' cop in a high-risk 'burg like Chicago or Detroit to be asked to lay down your life in the line of duty.
RIP, Officer Crisp and Maros

Officer Crisp, it's obvious from reading the reflections of those who knew you, that you exemplified professionalism, commitment and compassionate service. You will live on in the hearts and minds of those who knew you and those who learn of you and your courage.

I met Jason while looking for a suspect in a larceny case, I was following up on near the Buncombe, McDowell county line.. He was eager to assist me in any way he could and seemed like a fine man. I was very sorry to hear of his death. My thoughts and prayers go out to him and his family and K-9 Maros may the Lord keep them both.
