Reflections for Officer Jason Marc Crisp

One month has passed since Jason was prematurely taken from us. Having personally known and worked with Jason, I can say that he was one of the finest Law Enforcement Officers and human beings I have ever met. He was everything to so many people. He was a husband, father, son, brother, and friend. He was widely respected and loved by everyone who knew him. It was impossible not to be drawn into conversation with him and his likeable personality was contagious. He was a true role model in a world where so many are pretenders. I looked up to him more than he ever knew and sought advice from him countless times. Jason was a brave warrior who went into the mouth of the beast when he was called upon and never hesitated to put himself in harm's way for the protection of others.

I cherish all the conversations we ever had and will carry Jason's memory with me everyday I walk this earth. Not a day has passed in the last month that I have not thought of Jason and pray that his family ultimately heals from this terrible tragedy. Jason was my friend and I will miss him.

God speed brother.

Keep your fears to yourself, but share your courage with others.

On behalf of my family, I extend our sincerest condolences on the grievous loss you suffered when Jason and his canine Maros were killed.

To the Crisp family, fellow deputies, and all who call Jason beloved, 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 Officer Crisp gave to his community and the citizens of our country, and for the supreme sacrifice he and his family made on March 12, 2014.

Jason and Maros, Shrek and I never got to work with you but, we will carry you with us as we perform the task ya'll enjoyed to do!!

"The K-9 Team"
When duty calls, we're first in line,
To face danger in the night.
They call on us, when it matters most,
We're ready for the fight.
We've trained in darkness, rain and snow,
To be ready for the call.
And when it comes, we do our best,
To make the evil fall.
Through all the days and nights we've worked,
you've been there by my side.
you've never failed to do the tasks,
And performed them all with pride.
While some may call you just a beast,
They just don't understand.
It's just a game, you've learned to play,
To catch the evil man.
Some may call you man's best friend,
But to me you're even more.
Through thick and thin, you've served with me,
you're loyal to the core.
And some of us, though only few,
Know what it really means,
To wear the badge, to hold the leash,
To be a K-9 team.

"The Final Inspection"
The policeman stood and faced his God,
Which must always come to pass.
He hoped his shoes were shining.
Just as brightly as his brass.
"Step forward now, policeman.
How shall I deal with you?
Have you always turned the other cheek?
To My church have you been true?"
The policeman squared his shoulders and said, "No, Lord, I guess I ain't,
Because those of us who carry badges can't always be a saint.
I've had to work most Sundays,
and at times my talk was rough,
and sometimes I've been violent,
Because the streets are awfully tough.
But I never took a penny,
That wasn't mine to keep....
Though I worked a lot of overtime
When the bills got just too steep.
And I never passed a cry for help,
Though at times I shook with fear.
And sometimes, God forgive me,
I've wept unmanly tears.
I know I don't deserve a place
Among the people here.
They never wanted me around
Except to calm their fear.
If you've a place for me here,
Lord, It needn't be so grand.
I never expected or had too much,
But if you don't.....I'll understand.
There was silence all around the throne
Where the saints had often trod.
As the policeman waited quietly,
For the judgment of his God.
"Step forward now, policeman,
You've borne your burdens well.
Come walk a beat on Heaven's streets,
You've done your time in hell."

Office Crisp,

Rest well in the arms of God.

To Your Family,

Feel His presence as God answers the prayers of many who have fallen to their knees on your behalf. Since the day of my son's death, I have carried every law enforcement officer and their family in my heart.

Every morning I go to my knees. During that time I pray, “Lord, Be with all law enforcement officers. Keep them safe and free from harm. They are Your soldiers on the front line of the battle against evil. If one should fall this day - wrap their family in your loving arms. Surround them with Your angels, loving family, friends, neighbors and caring people to comfort them. Ease their pain. Help them to mourn well. In Jesus' name and for Your Glory, Amen.”

I have lifted you and your family to God every morning for over three years. Feel those prayers. God is with you, He knows and will ease your pain.
