You were my great grand uncle! I recently was working on the family genealogy and found you. You were my great-grandfather's brother. I'm sorry for your loss and appreciate your service to your community. I lived near St Louis many years ago. I wish I had known about you, I would have visited your grave.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 126th anniversary of your death. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service. My cherished son Larry Lasater was a fellow police officer murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Rest In Peace

Sgt. Jenks,

Although it has been many years since you were taken from your family and friends, you are not forgotten by the men and women who now make up the ranks on the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department. God bless you and keep you always.

I stop by this website often after the death of two dear friends with the NCSHP (Troopers Calvin Taylor E.O.W. October 3, 2001 and Anthony Cogdill E.O.W. May 30, 2003). Unfortunately, I had to add the name of another friend recently. Deputy Jeffery Hewitt, Buncombe County (NC) Sheriff’s Department, E.O.W. April 4, 2004.

I want to honor all of those who gave their life in the line of duty. Although your death was many many years ago, you are still a hero.

God Bless the men and women who continue to serve their communities in our great Nation.

...Gone, but never Forgotten....
