Reflections for Police Officer Brian Wayne Jones

Officer Jones,

Rest well in the arms of the Lord.

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.

Our faith helps us to see beyond the grave.

Your passing has really touched me. I did not know you, but you were what every police officer strives to be. You died so young, but you are a true hero. May you rest in peace.

Brian I am truly honored to have known you and to have had the opportunity to work with you. Your dedication to this profession, your family and faith are without a doubt a model for me and many others to follow. I will never forget you. I will think of you and your fried turkeys every Thanksgiving, every time I speak at Rachael's school and we watch the video that you gave me to show to the kids, I will think of you. Every time my faith is challenged I will think of the courage you had to speak up for what you believe in and will pray that I can do the same. My former pastor once said "when you get to heaven's gate, you don't want to be asked why you didn't take the time on earth to tell others about Christ", I without a doubt know that you didn't have to answer that question. You were truly a disciple who made disciples. I know I will see you again one day. Rachael and I will be here to look after your family as will many others. I love you brother and thank you for having left a mark on my life.

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

To the Jones family, fellow officers, and all who call Brian 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 Jones gave to his community and the citizens of Virginia, and for the supreme sacrifice he and his family made on May 30, 2014.

Our hearts are broken and our emotions are shattered. Chuck had an amazing level of respect for you. You were a perfect example of the kind of father, husband, and police officer so many people strive to be! Thank you for your service to our country and the City of Norfolk. The overwhelming love and support extended to your family will hopefully allow you to rest easy. You will never be forgotten. May you rest in peace Brian… now that your spirit has been returned to the God who gave it. God bless.

To the NPD - I had the honor of being able to attend the services to celebrate Officer Jones' life and I must say, Job well done. Again, well done. What a fine group of men and women.

So many people take for granted that every hour of the day, women and men like Officer Jones stand ready to put their lives on the line for strangers. Officer Jones and Officer Allison stopped an active shooter and without a doubt saved lives.

Thank you Officer Jones for your faithful service. You will be remembered. May God grant your family and agency peace and comfort.

For a man I've never met your wife told me a lot about you. She loved you so much and you were her hero. Sadness overwhelms me for you, your wife and children. You have payed the ultimate sacrifice but knowing you are a godly man means you are getting fitted with wings and that makes me feel safer!

In every way you encompassed the meaning of a true man. A man of Faith, of honor, of courage and of hope. You are an example to all of how we should live. I am grateful to have known you and honored to have served with you. Please rest easy and assured that we will take it from here.

Patrolman Jones rest in peace. We passed at the Police Memorial this year and with the crowds it was no more than being in the crowd. Your Honor Guard was very sharp and you could tell that you were beaming with pride. I am part of the Unity Tour and will dedicated this years coming ride to you and your family. We honor those that have paid such a high price for our profession. Rest my brother officer and know that your memory will be carried by all that stand in your place.
Lieutenant Glenn F. Macher Jr. MPD 4 Martinsburg WV

In these times of difficult times and the tests of our resolve we must remember all of the ways to honor those that have gone before us. Honor Them.

Brian, I will never forget the way you helped me. You may not know how much that meant to me. Maybe I should have told you, but I know you can hear me now. Thank you for standing beside us as brothers and sisters in blue. You are a hero and it was an honor to serve with you. Rest easy my friend. Oh...and as far as us hunting together on the Eastern shore next November...I realize we won't be hunting together but I will be out there and the first buck I take will be in your honor!! I am pretty sure you will like that. Again, rest easy and look in on us from time to time.
