Even though jon was 52 when he died, she still thinks of him as her boy and she remembers what he was like as a youngster.

:01 - :08 :27 - :41 1:06 - 1:21 1:29 - 1:38 he was a very happy boy, he was a boy that would make up his mind and you wouldn't be able to change it laughs pat shared her prized pictures with me.

Jon as a baby the all american good looking boy in grade school.

Life magazine considered him for a cover shot.

When he joined the police explorer program he was determined to be a good officer always guided by strong values.

He was just a very kind person, he loved everybody, he loved his job, he loved his family .

He was just a very good person.

And he loved dogs, was a canine officer for both salt lake city and unified police.

He won awards all over the world.

But this picture shows he always had a sense of humor.

But he suffered intense emotional and physical pain after this january 2016 shootout in holladay.

His buddy doug barney was killed and jon was shot in both legs and he never fully recovered.

In his office he had a great big picture of doug barney.

He just loved the man and he just felt so bad.

Maybe its like remorse.

Maybe its like survivors remorse.

He really loved his large, extended family and was looking forward to a big family reunion this summer.

I just will miss him so much and so will my sister and his brothers .

He was such a wonderful person.
