Letter from Jen
JACOB PICKETT RESPONSE ORGANIZATION
It is our honor to introduce you to our group, the Jacob Pickett Response Organization.
The Jacob Pickett Response Organization, or JPRO, is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization devoted to assist law enforcement families by helping with financial tolls brought on by life’s traumatic events.
Deputy Jacob Pickett, Boone County Sheriff’s Office, was shot in the line of duty on March 2nd, 2018 while pursuing a suspect with his K9 Brik. After several days on life support, Jake died on March 5th after donating his organs to help others. Service to others was one of Jake’s greatest passions and he was constantly assisting others in need. He will be forever remembered for his acts of kindness of helping friends, family, and the community.
I am Deputy Jacob Pickett’s surviving spouse, Jen Pickett. It is my goal to bring to life an organization that will help others in our law enforcement family. On March 7th, 2020, we held the Deputy Jacob Pickett 2nd Annual Remembrance Day to raise funds for a family near and dear to our hearts, the Farinellas. Joe, a deputy for Tipton County Sheriff’s Department, and his wife, Amanda, have 2 beautiful daughters. In the fall of 2019, Amanda received a heartbreaking diagnosis, stage 4 Adenocarcinoma lung cancer that had spread rapidly through her body. As an organization and community, we “Responded Like Jake” by raising funds to assist with medical bills and other expenses related to their hardship. The community showed overwhelming support for the Farinellas and JPRO.
The Jacob Pickett Response Organization needs your support to carry out our mission to help other law enforcement families. JPRO will rely solely on sponsorships, fundraising, and donations. Funds and item donations will be used to carry out our mission.
We hope you will join us in supporting other law enforcement families by Responding like Jake.
