Every morning I go to my knees. During that time I pray Psalm 91 over all LEO’s and this prayer also:

“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 know that God sends those angels to watch over our officers, sometimes to protect them and sometimes to whisk our officers into His presence.

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.

I have lifted your family to God every morning for over seven years. I pray that Jason's life and death will bring glory to God.

Trust those prayers. God is with you; He knows and will ease your pain.

Our faith helps us to see beyond the grave.

Dear Jason:

Some 240 years ago, a group of men set forth a way of life, unheard of before. A life where every citizen is guaranteed to live their life as they choose. A life where the citizens can live free, live without fear, enjoy the blessings of the Almighty and live in peace and comfort in their homes. This way of life has been threatened many times in that 240 years, both at home and abroad. The foreign threats were met with and eliminated by our beloved military, at a great price.

But the threat at home NEVER ends, and there needed to be a group, a very special group of people who would stand up for those who cannot protect themselves, to enhance the quality of life given to the citizens all those years ago. A special group of people who put others first and risk everything so those citizens may never know fear, horror or evil. And so this special group of people became known as American Lawmen. A very special and rare breed of people who take a solemn oath to Protect and Serve. Not a cliché, but an oath, an oath that they live by every day. An oath that has subjected them to ridicule, violence, shunned, and mistrusted. And yet, that special group of people, the American Lawmen, are out on the streets making certain that even the lawmen haters are safe.

They wear a badge of honor, and carry the burden of knowing every time they leave their families to do their job, may be the last time they see their families. They earn a pay that borders on insulting for the risks and tasks they perform every day. Most folks have a home that is covered in ivy or pretty flowers. Most of these lawmen have a house covered in mortgages and debt. But they still remain committed to their solemn oath, for it’s not money that motivates them. No, its’s the knowledge that today, somewhere, one of these lawmen located a missing child, gave CPR to a dying man or woman, helped an elderly person feel security and closeness, removed a violent criminal from the midst of the citizens they swore to protect. And, all too often, bury one of their own who made the supreme sacrifice attempting to guarantee those citizens their right to live free, free from fear and evil.

And there is their families. A child who wakes up one morning and asks his distraught and grief stricken mother, “Mommy, when is Daddy coming home?” And as the widow chokes back her tears, tells her child that, “God needed more police to help patrol the streets of heaven, so He asked Daddy to come help”. And the child sleeps with Dad’s pillow because it still has the smell of his cologne. The same families that will forever look at an empty chair at the dinner table.

Jason, I am proud to be in the same fraternity as you, and every American Lawmen, active, retired and deceased. Those who are not privileged to wear the Badge of Honor cannot truly understand the depth of our love for them and each other. Thank you for your service, your sacrifice and dedication to our profession. And thank you to your family for the sacrifice they now are burdened with. And a special thanks to your Mom who gave 9 months of hell to have you, a lifetime to teach you to care for others before yourself. “Above all else, honor”. May you rest in peace my brother knowing we have the watch, and the “Thin Blue” has held, and always will.

Jason Quick, my brother words cannot express what we are all feeling right now... Brother I was so proud to know you, work with you, and call you my brother. You were one of the most dedicated officers I know, always being there for your fellow brothers and sisters even when you didn't have to. You were always quick to volunteer to handle anything that needed to be handled, to take a call for your partners when they were backed up, to do anything that needed to be done. You were a fine man and servant. You would give the shirt off your back to anyone, and none of us ever doubted you had our backs in any situation.

I only wish I'd stayed and spoke with you 5 more minutes last night while you were out on the wreck on Fayetteville Rd, and I only wish I could've prevented this horrible tragedy from happening to you. I would have gladly taken your place if I could've. Brother you will be missed like you don't know, and noone will ever take your place. I wish I could hear your voice once last time...

I hope and pray your family will find some peace and comfort as i know their hearts are breaking as ours is. I love you brother...

"As I prepare to begin my shift, I think about what I may have to do in the next 8 hours to protect you and your family. You may curse me, say you hate me, and protest my chosen profession, but I will be on the job when my shift begins just the same. Not everyone can do what I do. Almost daily I read about my fekkow Officers being killed in the line of duty. These are my comrades, my colleagues, my friends. In spite of the danger, I will be there for you when you need me. I wear the uniform proudly, I am dedicated, I hold the line, I am a Police Officer." I wrote this and dedicate it to all Law Enforcement. Rest easy now Officer Quick, and God Bless all Police Officers.
