Jimmy Judge Obituary, Death – Jimmy Judge, a long-time assistant chief with the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office has passed away after a courageous battle with ALS. His fight against amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) became the subject of many reports on News4JAX as Judge traveled for treatments and fellow law enforcement officers and local businesses banded forces to collect money to assist in covering his medical expenses. During an interview with News4Jax that took place in January 2021, Judge indicated that he intends to continue fighting right up until the very last moment of his life.

His wife, Shannon, and their son, Jakie, will carry on without him after over 32 years of service with the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office. Judge will be much missed. Jakie is another one of the agency’s seasoned employees. T.K. Waters, the Sheriff of Jacksonville, released a message announcing Judge’s demise via social media on Saturday. The statement was about Judge. Today, the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office was hit with the devastating news of the passing of a dearly loved member of our family. Jimmy Judge was a loyal employee who has roughly 32 years of experience working for our company.

He served with pride and accomplished a lot throughout his time here.  When Sheriff Mike Williams promoted Jimmy to the post of Assistant Chief, Jimmy already held the record for the most years of service as a lieutenant. This meant that Jimmy was eligible for the promotion. The battle that Jimmy fought against amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) was exceptional for the bravery that he displayed throughout it. He was liked by a lot of people, and the loss of his life is being painfully felt not only by active and retired members of the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office but also by members of the Jacksonville community as a whole. He was well-liked by a lot of people.

On behalf of the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office, please accept my most sincere condolences and pass them along to his wife, Shannon, and to their son, Jakie. I am sorry for the loss you have suffered. During this difficult time, I ask that you join me in keeping Lt. Judge’s loved ones and members of his family in your thoughts and prayers. They will be in my thoughts and prayers as well.
