COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — A “grateful and thankful citizen” left a note for a Colorado State Patrol trooper who lost a colleague last week.

Mother and wife Jaimie Jursevics was killed in the line of duty Sunday night after being hit by an alleged drunk driver.  Her death echoed throughout the state and beyond.

On Tuesday, a procession honored Jursevics and her family was escorted from their home to Denver.  Law enforcement officials from the state paid their respects along the route.

On Friday night, the Ralston Valley High School football team athletes honored the fallen state trooper at its playoff game in Highlands Ranch.

A citizen left a note of condolence and appreciation for the another Colorado State Patrol trooper in Colorado Springs on Friday.

The note read:


I don’t know you, but I want to send my heartfelt condolences to you and the entire CSP. With you living this close to the accident scene, I’m sure you knew Trooper Jursevics.

Please know you do not mourn alone. I pray for her and her family, both blood and blue, during this difficult time. What you and your co-workers do on a daily basis and the dangers of your job are not overlooked by us, the silent majority. God bless and God speed!

–A grateful and thankful citizen
