I was saddened to hear of your death Jacques. I had hoped we would've got together again sometime. Your death brought back a flood of memories, like the day we met in 3rd grade when the principal asked me to take you around the school for awhile because you could only speak French. It was good your Mom was Greek so we had a common language. We hung out as good friends until 6th grade when my family moved to Belmont Shore and I though I would never see my Lafayette friends again. Imagine how surprised and happy I was when I found out you were also moving to the Shore. During Junior High, you and I discovered girls, fishing, swimming, diving, surfing, girls, and, unfortunately smoking. Hanging out at the Foster Freeze. Remember all those days on the Annie B, the fishing barge in Long Beach! Remember the Christmas of 1969 when we went to Denver for a week. Remember the weekend we "borrowed" our friends Dad's 14 foot outboard and went to Avalon so we could go to El Encanto to find girls to dance with. Yes, we got in trouble for that one. Jacques you were the best friend anyone could have and growing up with you, I am grateful for ALL the memories, thank you my friend, I hope to see you again! Those were the Wonder Years.

As an Alum of LASD Class 187 we started our LE career together "on the hill" in East LA. I did not see Jacques after graduation since I worked for an allied agency but the bond of brotherhood is forever. Being of the same age and retired the same year I can only think that your retirement was too short but I hope well lived. RIP Jacques.

Worked with Jacques at the LCMC Jail Wards...he added fun to the job-had a great sense of humor. Just nice to talk to. I was taken by surprise of his passing at what seems to be too young of an age to leave this earth. My sincere condolences to his family.

Dear Carey and Jeremy, remembering your dad with great respect and love. Jacques was my long time radio car partner in the Sheriffs Department for a long time. I just learned of his passing last night and it hurts. Jacques and I took care of each other for many years and we got into some very dangerous situations. I tried reaching out to him through the department. I was told that a message was sent out to him, but I never received a response. He was my son, Johnny's godfather. He was a great patrol officer and detective. He always called me his brother and we promised each other that if anything ever happened to us. we would be there for each other's families. He saved me from lots of things as I did him. We were such great cops in the field that bad guys feared when we were on the streets. Rest in peace my brother, until we meet again. I will have a special mass said for him at church.
