Reflections for Detective Jeffrey A. Lee

Lord Jesus, as we watch our nation’s brave law enforcement officers succumb to the wicked and evil in this world, it becomes difficult for us to pick up and move forward. Our communities are on the brink of exploding with tension. In light of the law enforcement officers who are no longer with us, I pray for endurance for our communities and law enforcement agencies. Carry us through this time of strife, that through our struggles, our bonds may grow even more unbreakable. In Your mighty and holy name, I pray. Amen.

“And I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?” Then I said, “Here am I! Send me.” [Isaiah 6:8 ESV]

“Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.” [Psalm 23:4 ESV]

I meet Jeffery in Queens NY when he was a very young man, possibly 6 or 7 years old. You could see at that age that he was a special human being, always polite and would present his hand to shake with you as a from a welcoming gesture.
After I left for the military I ran into Jeffery in Forrest Hills on Austin Street while he was a young beat officer and his presoniatly never changed, he had grown into a big bear but was the same gracious person, polite, welcoming and very respectful.
I was very sad to hear that he passed away and I knew the world lost a wonderful person and terrific cop.

I am very proud to have know him and to see him grow into a upstanding Detective of high moral standard is a testament to his parents, friends and all who had the privilege to know him.

I hope and pray that a street is named after him in Queens NY.

Detective Jeffrey Lee was my post advisor (2112) for the Law Enforcement Explorer program. He was a mentor for many of us explorers, his character and selflessness passed on to many of his explorers. His teachings are guiding me every day and made me the leader I am today. We will never forget you Jeffrey! Your name will forever carry on old friend. Sincerely NYPD Post 2112
