Reflections for Officer Jason Edward White

Thinking of you today Jason. Please know you are never forgotten. It is hard to believe so many years have passed. Many of your colleagues have retired, as you should have had the opportunity to enjoy.
You are missed and were so loved by all.

Jason, it hard to believe it has been 25 years since we lost you. Braxton and I talk often about our times together with you on RDU. It was a honor to call you a friend and to work with you. God bless you and your family.

RIP BROTHER

I've always remembered that night like it was yesterday. I was only a year younger than you when you left this world and had been living on Capital Hill only a few years and worked at Armand's Pizzaria. You were friends with a co-worker and we would run into one another around town, off duty and on. We started to become friends, playing pool together at the "Lil Pub" on PA Ave. We were both friends with JJ the owner ( Retired MPO officer) and would sometimes shoot pool together. You were there the night when Tom Cruise was playing pool there while making "A Few Good Men", we were in disbelief when we played partners against him! I had seen you only a couple of days before your death and it still breaks my heart to realize that was the last time I'd ever see you. I was at Armand's that night and was relaxing with a cold one after we'd closed and I turned the news on and was watching the live coverage that was close to where I was living and didn't even imagine that you were the officer that had passed, I found out that next morning and it broke my heart.... I wished we had been closer Jason. JJ was brutally murdered a short time after your passing (I think, maybe it was before you left.) inside the "Lil Pub" while taking the trash out after closing, he too wasn't given a fighting chance and was taken by a lowly coward! I lived behind the Pub between 6th and 7th street during that incident and was woken by all the commotion. It's been so many years now and both yours and JJ's deaths have haunted me over the years. About 10 years after your untimely departure, I was back in school in Ohio and was on a DC field trip during the early part of summer and somehow on a beautiful afternoon, the group ended up in front of the DC fallen officers memorial and the first name I saw on it was yours and it immediately brought tears to my eyes and it took me back to good times we shared. I guess the reason I'm writing this, is to let you and your family know that although you were only here a short time, your light burned bright and you left an impression on many. I'm no longer haunted by your death because I've found Fod and my faith lets me know your shining down on all that you've left and we the living are the true suffers. Love you brother and only wished I could have told you that when you were here with me. Rest in Peace with our Lord.

We grew up together in the same neighborhood. Our dads were DC Homicide detectives together. We joined separate police departments within a couple years of each other. You paid the ultimate sacrifice, and my Dad was there, still in homicide, and was part of the team of detectives who locked up the dirt bag who took you away from all of us, especially your family. You were a good person with a good and kind heart. That's about the best thing anyone can say about a person.

We never met. I've been on the job for about a year now. I read about your story in Joseph Massey's book. I am sure that I have driven down the 200 block of 14th street SE numerous times during my FTO cycle not knowing what happened to you back in 93.

I will never forget your story. Thank you for your sacrifice brother.

To: Jason and Brian Class 90-9


This is Big Onion 1st. District
I miss you guys . . .
I will never forget the both of you !!
I remember when they issued our weapons to us.
Brian walked between the chairs in our class and said make way hydro shock coming through !! " We laughed he made everyone in class laugh !!
This will be my last post I'm about to retire. I'm with the Feds now. There was times when we rejoiced getting to go home on time in one piece.
We gave the DC government and the DC residence all we had ( blood, sweat and tears. In the 1st district sub station where I was assigned we would review that day's incidents and talk about each other weaknesses and strengths . We never put one another down but encourage each other to be better at what we do. We loved each other. Sometimes we 'd be laughing and crying at the same time. If only they knew how human we are we could not show our feelings or our pain. Citizens never saw when we cried or had self doubt. How seeing a homicide victim made us think about their families who just lost one of their own. How would we notify them and when we informed them would we break down too. We knew it was up to us to protect those who could not protect themselves. We served proudly and asked God to protect us during our tour of duty. But most of all we asked that we be fair and respectful to the people we served. I hope and pray we made a difference in people's lives. We did our best and gave it our all. Sincerely, KVT.

Jason I think of you often these days. I know it is silly because I only remember you as a young boy with a beautiful head full of blond hair and a broad grin coming home from the swimming pool in Landover Hills. I will always remember the warmth of your parents, Ron and Martha, and sweet Aaron when he was 4 years old. My heart still aches when I think about how we lost you. You are with God now and one day Martha and Ron will see you again. My prayers are with them.

Remembering Jason today....I'm a old friend of a friend of Jason's. Introduced by Michael Chinn back in the day...1991ish. We had a few hang sessions to brainstorm some business opportunities (graphic design, t-shirt stuff)! Ha, young and ready to create something special!! Lots of respect for him!!

Today I gave my leather biker jacket to a good friend, another Jason (go fig! ha!!). It carries the manorial patch that was given out. Never forget!

RIP Jason, and bless your family and friend!!

I knew White from when I first moved into the neighborhood. We kept running into each other at the China Wall on 8th street, waiting out front in the cold for our food. I'd started with the Senate in Feb of '93. I liked him, he joked, laughed...and even picked on me for picking on the "Dog Bone Man". Everyone is long gone now...even China Wall closed it's doors 3 years ago. What happened to those two cops in NYC got me to thinking about White again. A man I barely knew...but will last a lifetime in my memory.
