I have many memories of you from your ambulance and firefighting days in Elko. In all of them you are always smiling and laughing, even with your face black from ash. It is difficult to think of your last moments, doing what you had always done, helping somebody. I am glad that I knew you. RIP and I wish peace to your family also. They lost a very special person.

I had the honor of wearing a bracelet bearing this hero’s name, Sergeant Benjamin M. Jenkins as I completed the 2021 Road to Hope LEU Ride. May he never be forgotten, he certainly won’t by me.

Today is one of countless days you'll remember Trooper Jenkins. Nevadans from many agencies join in remembering him today. His law enforcement, biological, and self-selected families sacrifice greatly alongside him.

"Thank you" will never be enough; and will always be all we have to offer. May days like today bring some comfort, knowing some will reflect, appreciate, and acknowledge your loss.

Our state and communities would not remotely resemble what they are without families such as yours stepping up to do and to defend what's good, right, honorable.

I'm so sorry we lost him in the battle. I share your sorrow today.

I have no rank to post except being a citizen of Nevada. My husband and I had a very memorable encounter with Officer Jenkins in Nov of 2018 on Hwy 93 between Ely and McGill. My husband was in the offense of driving too fast and we were pulled over by Officer Jenkins. His demeanor and humorous banter with us made the experience easy and very memorable. I would stand and applaud this man if he were to walk into the room. I was so stricken with grief when I saw the FB postings of his death that I was flooded with tears just watching his memorial procedures throughout the state. I live in Mesquite NV and tomorrow on May 8th I will be driving up to Jackpot NV and I have every intention of stopping at mile marker 106 to pay my deepest respect and place some memorial Thin Blue Line flags at the roadside. I'm sure he is sorely missed by all who knew him. I was just lucky that this extraordinary man touched my life for just 13 minutes.

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.
