Reflections for Officer Jason Edward White

Clarification!!! I am not deceased. Our family lives in TN, and we are as happy as we can be without our precious Jason. Your kind words about my Jason brings happiness to my heart knowing that you felt so strongly about Jason and all the good he stood for. Jason brought joy to our hearts and pride to the MPDC.
Love Mom

"My Brother"

Although I never met him, I knew him.
He was idealistic and believed he could make a difference.
He was immensely proud of the uniform and the badge and what they represent.
He felt privileged to be of service to his department, his community and to his country.

He was a cop.

Although I never met him, I knew him.
He was friendly, courteous, and polite, yet firm.
He laughed and joked, but was serious when necessary.
He was competent, trained, and professional.

He was a cop.

Although I never met him, I knew him.
He had a strong sense of right and wrong and became
frustrated when true justice became sidetracked.
He felt the sharp criticism that goes with the job, but he
never wavered.
He stood by and for his fellow officers.

He was a cop.

Although I never met him, I knew him.
He longed for his family during the long hours.
He worried about them during his shifts and the lonely
weekends, holidays and midnights when they were apart.
He felt guilty about the lost time, but knew his calling
and prayed they would understand.

He was a cop.

Although I never met him, I knew him.
He was a good son, a loving husband, and a devoted father.
He was dedicated to the profession and cared about the
people he served.
He wanted to do the best job that he could and strived to
be the best he could be.
He was a good citizen and a good neighbor.

He was a cop.

Yes, I did know him.
He was a cop, he was my Brother.

Rest easy Brother White, we have the watch...

”I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me.”
---Isaiah 6:8

You answered the call and made the ultimate sacrifice. Rest easy in God's kingdom and watch over us as we continue the battle here on earth!!!

i am one of MPO Richard Kennedy's sons. i remember when my dad came home and told us the news. i was 12 years old back then and until this trajedy i had never seen my father cry. i thought to myself that this must have been someone special in order for my dad to react the way he did. i have never met Mr. White, but his story has been told to me through out my years of growing up. now that i am older i want to follow in my father's footsteps and i pray everyday that i will have the courage that all D.C. police officers have especially Officer Jason Edward White.

Ofc. White, I was a brand new Marine stationed at Marine Barracks 8th & I in DC when you were murdered. I watched from post as the line of police cars came off the highway and onto the city streets. The cars seemed to go on for hours. I have since left the Marines and become a police officer myself, but the lasting memory of the Officer that didn't go home that night has left a lasting memory on my mind. Rest in Peace and I will never forget the day the Thin Blue Line got a little thinner.

Just wanted to stop by to say hello...wanted you to know that you are not forgotten, we think of you often. Someone left a reflection for you a couple of years ago that says alot...the cold, dark winter nights remind us of what could have been, when you were still with us, that you should still be with us at roll call. We can still feel your presence, I know you are guiding your brave colleagues out there at night. Please continue to watch over them. You were a brave young man, and a didn't deserve this fate. You are an inspiration to us all -- we must continue the fight to get the violent, evil criminals off the street.

I know your mom was happy to see you again in heaven. I remember the story of the coat you had on lay-away for her birthday. Not to worry, one of your good friends, another officer got it out for you and your mom got her coat for her birthday - how special that was!

Your funeral procession was lined for miles with every day people just standing, waiting for their opportunity to pay respects. An ederly man stood in the median with his hand on his heart. People that loved you , and people that never met you...everyone recognized your sacrifice.

God Bless you! Until we meet again. Rest in Peace.

Not much makes me cry but I just heard your story from your old friend, Mr. N.T. who gave a seminar at the FCCJA be honest, it is hard to control myself. I know you are in a better place and hope I make it up there someday. Happy Holidays, to the brother I never met.

I remembered today as I have left reflections for other officers that I knew that an officer with the last name White from my area was taken from us. It stands out to me because I am from this area and officer White was my age. Then as I searched today for his name, I see that he was taken from us on my birth date. As a child I had a baby sitter who's last name was White and she had a son and I've often wondered if Jason was her son because of the area and his age. But I don't know if I'll ever know that. But I do know this...In the near future I will share that same last name because my boyfriend is also a "White" Just a lot of things in common so I had to write. Rest in Peace Officer Jason White. Watch over your family and may God be with them with the holidays coming up.

Our fathers were friends on the force and we followed in their footsteps. I remember going fishing with you and Aaron as kids, so long ago. It wasn't until I became a cop that I truly realized your sacrifice. I wish things were different. Rest easy.
