Reflections for Deputy Sheriff Jacob Howard Keltner

On behalf of POINT 27, we would like to offer condolences for Deputy Sheriff Jacob Keltner. Please know we are eternally grateful for Jacob’s service and his ultimate sacrifice.

To honor Deputy Keltner, POINT 27 sent 27 Thin Blue Line Dog Tag Necklaces, engraved with “Blessed are the Peacemakers for they will be called children of God” Matthew 5:9, to the McHenry County Sheriff’s Department for Jacob’s partner and fellow officers. POINT 27 sent Folded Flag Necklaces engraved with “Greater Love has no one than this; than to lay down one’s life for one’s friend” John 15:13 for Deputy Keltner’s wife and children.

POINT 27 is a Non-Profit organization with a mission to strengthen and encourage members of the Armed Forces, First Responders, and their families, by sharing scripture on Dog Tags and Jewelry called Shields of Strength.

We will never forget and we are forever grateful.
