My Story


My name is Rebekah Jones and I am police officer’s widow. My husband, Brian Jones was killed in the line of duty, May 30, 2014.

On that day, I went from being a police wife to a 28-year-old widow with three small children. In an instant, my life was forever changed and the person that I was would never be the same.

This is my story of surviving and choosing happiness.

Why Did I Choose Happiness?


Making the decision every day to choose happiness is what saved my life and I want to share my story with you. Please visit my site for guidance, inspiration and ultimately support, not only from myself but from others who have lost the greatest loss of all. It is never too late to heal or to let the pain go and it’s never too late to choose happiness.
