The service will be open to the public.

If you wish to help the family of Officer Jackson, who left behind a wife and two young children, the Bellevue Police Foundation has established a memorial fund at bellevuepolicefoundation.org.

According to the Washington State Patrol, on Nov. 21, Jackson was traveling northbound on Bellevue Way when he struck a vehicle entering a parking lot.

He was transported to Harborview Medical Center, where he later died.

An investigation showed that impairment and speed were not factors in the crash.

Jackson, 34, had been a member of the Bellevue Police Department since 2018.

Jackson spent two years on the force before transferring to the traffic unit as a motorcycle officer.

“We are devastated by Officer Jackson’s tragic death,” said Bellevue Police Chief Wendell Shirley. “Our hearts go out to his wife, two children, his family and friends, and extended BPD family as they grieve. This is a huge loss for the entire community.”

Before joining the Bellevue Police Department, Jackson was an EMT, volunteer firefighter, and a member of the King County Sheriff’s Office Search and Rescue Volunteer K-9 Unit.

He was recently honored as employee of the quarter “for his excellent quality of work and service to the community,” according to Bellevue Police.

“(He was) a very good rider, probably better than I was, and a family guy (with) two cute kids, and to have all that taken away in an instant, it’s devastating,” said Brad Estill, a retired Bellevue police officer.

Estill told KIRO 7′s Ryan Simms that when he retired, it was Jackson who took his place.

“We’re a small department, we’re a family, we knew each other,” said Estill.

Jackson grew up in Spokane, and graduated from Issaquah High School and Central Washington University.
