Reflections for Trooper Joseph Jon Bullock

Dear Trooper Joseph J Bullock,
I never knew you but remember hearing of what happened to you last year on this day, I wrote your name on my car but not before reading about how your life was taken... I am so sorry I wish I was there to have been able to help.. I cried as I wrote your name and EOW date your age and tour of duty, the reflections written about you and while you are not here with the FHP anymore, your name and spirit lives on in so many peoples memories. I can’t forget your picture or your badge no, and whenever I see a Florida Highway Patrol Car I think of you and say a prayer for your family and for the Troopers everywhere.

Thank you for your 19 yrs. of service with FHP and thank you for serving our country also in the Air Force , they got the man who shot you and I’m sure happy they did he will never hurt another one again. I heard they named a post office building after you and also the highway where your life was taken...
I live in Florida and would love to go someday to pay my respects.
Each time I write about and Officer down It reminds me to pray for all the families and how short life may be, and how blessed we are to have men and women out there that will lay down their lives to help save another.
I will always stop to help out an Officer in need, I’m just a citizen but one with Military and Police family ...
I hear you have 2 sisters and parents who are hear I’m sure thinking about you all the time.
Your life meant a lot and still does to many, please know we have not nor will we forget what you have done to keep others safe while paying the ultimate price.
God bless your family and keep them safe and may they know your in Heaven watching down on them.

As we reflect on the senseless murder of Trooper Bullock, it does not go unnoted how many lives are impacted. Dedication to service to others is not without a price, and Joe's dedicated selfless service made a positive difference to Florida. The Bullock Family, our Florida Troopers, Martin County Sheriff's Deputies and all those dedicated first responders involved with this tragic incident remain in our thoughts and prayers.

What A Day That Will Be Lyrics

There is coming a day when no heartaches shall come
No more clouds in the sky, no more tears to dim the eye.
All is peace forevermore on that happy golden shore,
What a day, glorious day that will be.

What a day that will be when my Jesus I shall see,
And I look upon His face,
The One who saved me by His grace;
When He takes me by the hand
And leads me through the Promised Land,
What a day, glorious day that will be.

There'll be no sorrow there, no more burdens to bear,
No more sickness, no pain, no more parting over there;
And forever I will be with the One who died for me,
What a day, glorious day that will be.

What a day that will be when my Jesus I shall see,
And I look upon His face,
The One who saved me by His grace;
When He takes me by the hand
And leads me through the Promised Land,
What a day, glorious day that will be.
What a day, glorious day that will be!

Please accept our deepest condolences for the family, friends and colleagues of Trooper Joseph Jon Bullock. Were all living in difficult time where unreasonable people reminds us like the word of GOD says about the certain characteristics that people will display ( 2 Timothy 3:1-5). Sadly, humans are often victimized by other imperfect humans. (Ecclesiastes 8:9) Additionally, we may face calamities because of “unexpected events”.

Trooper Bullock, Thank God the tow truck driver was able to escape and thank God also that he could get help from a Brother Officer who, Thank God was able to put this maniac's rampage to a halt before anyone else was murdered. It's so heart wrenching though, that he was able to even take ONE life, yours and we mourn and honor you here.

Thank you for all your service, God Bless and may you forever Rest in Peace, Brother.

You stopped to help a supposed motorist in need, and they selfishly took your life. Rest in peace Trooper, you will always be remembered.

Officer J. Honeycutt

The true measure of a person
is not found in the
might of their arm,
their wealth
or their power –
it is found in the strength
of their character.

There is no greater testimony to
ones character, than ones
willingness to sacrifice all,
in the noble quest of
providing protection to all
whom they serve.
