Standing with the Deschutes County Sheriff's Office Oregon in this tragedy and praying for Deputy Chris Jones’ family, friends, colleagues, and community.
“It is with great sadness that the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office shares the tragic death of one of our own. Deputy Chris Jones, a twelve year veteran of our office, was killed in an off duty motorcycle crash yesterday evening in Wheeler County.
Sheriff L. Shane Nelson said today, “Chris was a kind man with a positive attitude. He will be missed by our office and our community. My thoughts and prayers are with his family, friends, and teammates.”
We have lost a coworker, a friend, a loved one, and a brother. Our thoughts are with Chris’ family during this extremely difficult time.
From the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office: Deputies encountered a man today, by the name of Ron, who had his brand new bike stolen from him. To make things worse, Ron is starting a new job this week and his bike was his only means of getting to work. Our deputies decided they couldn’t stand by as their new friend wouldn’t be able to keep his new job. Several of our deputies employed the help of a Clackamas County Mental Health Specialist and banded together to get Ron a new bike (and bike lock). Good luck at your new job Ron!
