Reflections for Patrolman Jeffery Dean Ginn

Jeff was one of the best friends I’ve ever had..

He had an extra job working the Kroger parking lot across from South Houston High Scool & I spent pretty much every night he worked hanging w/him and listening to his goofy jokes.

Jeff was the big brother I never had but I still loved him like a brother & I still do.

I knew Jeff in Sunday School before he chose to serve his community as a police officer. I joined HPD a few years before he joined PPD. He was a good man, gone far too soon.

Rest In Peace, brother.

Jillian Ginn - thank you to you and your family for sharing your daddy with our profession. As we honor his service and sacrifice, you remind all of us of the sacrifice his family has made as well. I know words can be so inadequate in healing the pain of your loss, but please know you are not alone in feeling the void left by the loss of your daddy and the example he set in the service to his community is a standard each officer in this country strives to maintain on each tour of duty. Thank you again for sharing him with us.

I never met Jeff, but feel we know him and the special man he was through his wife Jenny and their beautiful daughters. May God continue to hold him, those he loved and those that loved him in the palm of His hands! Gone from this temporary home but never forgotten!

A life not in vain and will certainly be remembered and rewarded. Time does not erase the public service.

Condolences to the family - personal and professional- and friends.

You are missed. I think back on all the events of my life and wish you were there... But you are here. You are with me every step of the way. I wish I knew your voice or could remember you holding me but I can' day we will be together again. Daddy I'm told that I'm the spitting image of I can only imagine how awesome you were. I know that Mom still misses the love of her life. Jessica's husband Blake wears your wedding ring, many people have asked me if it upsets me and the answer is no. I know that you would be proud of the man that she married. He is taking excellent care of her. As for me, Daddy, I still haven't found the right one but I know he's out there somewhere. I look back on my college graduation this December and I remember looking up in the stands and hoping you would show up, but I knew that you were there with me. Mom tells me that its funny how much we are alike. I miss you Daddy! I had always thought that as I got older it would be easier to cope with your death, but in reality its harder. You are a hero Daddy! You died doing what you love! I love you Daddy... you are my hero!!!

Jeff and I used to be the best of friends... I was just a kid and he was like my big brother and boy, did we have fun.

I used to jack with him and he always returned the favor by jacking with me in fact, I will never forget the times when he used to sit with F.E. to shoot radar on Pine (in the old church parking lot on Pine) and I knew he was there so I would intentionally speed up just to see him walk out and wave his hands in the air so as to pull me over but I would just honk my horn, swerve to the left and laugh while he would flip me off and say under his breath... "you little bastard" as I saw nothing but a big grin in my rear view mirror as I drove by; it was fun!

He would always tell me later what he was thinking at the time much like he would open up to me when he worked his extra job in the Kroger Parking lot for "Hulabaloo"...

He was a proud father and used to brag about how very much he loved Jenny and then once upon a time, he had a brand new daughter and one night when Jenny was visiting him I asked if I could hold her and I did...

I was only a kid at the time but I will NEVER forget that moment nor will I ever forget the very moment that I lost my big brother Jeff Ginn.

That moment had to be the very worst moment in the world for me because when I saw the news that said a Pasadena Police Officer had been gunned down, I instantly begged God to let it be anyone gut Jeff but it was and then my the world for me completly stopped...

I had a nervious breakdown and couldn't find it within myself to make it to his funeral because I simply couldn't take it so I sold almost everything that I owned and moved to Florida so as to escape the great amount of pain and loss that I felt inside.

I miss you Jeff Ginn and I will look for you in Heaven... I miss your smile and I am so sorry that I lived to be older than you but please know that you are and always will be in my heart to never be forgotten...

I know, that I still owe you $20 bucks because I took the Bills with "7"
... you got me again Grin..

I love you Big Brother and miss you very, very much!

Today would have been his 50th birthday. I remember that day, as well. I lived a street over from Jeff's parents' house. I am still good friends with his daughters. They are a good group of people. Officer Ginn would be so proud!

I just discovered this site that has enabled me to see Jeff's smiling face again, though I've kept it in my memory all these years. We met through our jobs - he as a Pasadena Police Officer, mine as a Registered Nurse in the local ER. He always brightened our day with his funny expressions & sense of humor.
I was heartbroken when I heard the news of his death that hot July day. He was an exceptional law officer, always eager to help, and an extraordinary person who was devoted to his family. I'm so sorry that he and his girls didn't have the chance to grow older together.
Those who knew him will never forget him!
