Jack Coler; son, brother, father, husband, L.A.P.D. police officer, FBI agent.
At age 65 (January 12th), Jack would have left behind twenty, perhaps a thirty-year career of proud, professional service to his country as a Special Agent. He may have found a second career for some time either in or out of law-enforcement, but based on what we know of him, probably remaining in law-enforcement or a related field.
His two fine young sons, now grown into productive and successful family men themselves, would have blessed him with grandchildren.
It should be unmistakable that there are thousands of current and former FBI agents and FBI personnel, thousands of law enforcement officers and officials and thousands of concerned citizens who will not forget Jack Coler’s sacrifice in the line of duty. They will endeavor to keep his memory alive and ensure that Leonard Peltier continues to serve the remainder of his lawful sentences.
At this time every year, our fondest thoughts and prayers go out to Jack’s family, friends and associates.
He will not be forgotten.
“In the Spirit of Coler and Williams”
