Thursday, January 3, 2019I was a dispatcher at WCSO in the late 1970's, I met Jerry Hopkins on my first shift as dispatcher when he stopped by just to say hi, and to tell me not to be nervous. Because of my eyesight, I was not able to pass physical for police work and Jerry one day came in with information about EMT/Parameic Schools. This led to a career as a Paramedic and helping people in need. I was on my way home from a double shift in the Mid Cities area, Apparently i fell asleep at the wheel and Jerry and his partner pulled me over. Jerry talked with me for a bit then told his partner to drive the squad, Jerry got in my car and drove and took me home to Decatur, I will alway remember that act of kindness from Jerry, I never got a chance to repay it back but then again, with Jerry you never had to repay acts of kindness like that. RIP Jerry your Watch here on this earth is finish you are now standing Watch in Heaven. God Bless, Terry Chester Paramedic/ Retired.

Wednesday, January 2, 2019My heart goes out to Jerry's family. I was with DPS when Jerry was stationed at DPS Hurst in Criminal Law Enforcement. He was well thought of in the law enforcement community and served the State of Texas well in his capacity as a law enforcement officer. May the Lord Jesus Christ be with you all.

Monday, December 31, 2018Jerry was one of my early roll models when I was a dispatcher at Wise County in 71 and 72. I learned a lot about how to handle people watching Jerry which helped carry me thru 40 years and counting as a peace officer. Jerry had a calm and cool manner about him even dealing with we inexperiemced dispatchers. rest in peace my friend and my condolences for the family. Would love hearing one more time "5185 Decatur....10-42"
