You were a great person, with a great heart. Always a smile on your face when I would see you. Our talks will be missed. I will never forget the day you told me you passed the test to become a cop! You were so excited and I couldn’t be happier. You will never be forgotten. Your memory will live on forever! Rest easy

Words are inadequate to tell you how beyond heartbroken we are to hear about JD. We will always remember him fondly. Even as a young boy he was witty and charming. We are so proud and grateful for his strong sense of duty and the commitment that he had for his community. The world has lost a truly remarkable human being. JD will always hold a special place in our hearts and we are honored to have known him.
