Bio: Born in Cincinnati, Ohio, Jason was a 1998 graduate of Glen Este High in Cincinnati where he was a first team all-city in 1998 and player of the year in the Queen City Conference, played baseball for what is now the University of the Cumberlands in Williamsburg, Ky., and in the minor league Billings Mustangs in Montana, and active in youth sports in Nelson County as a coach.

He was a member of the N.N.D.D.A. K-9 association, local Fraternal Order of Police # 43, Special Response Team, and attended Bloomfield Baptist Church.

Ellis is not only being remembered as an officer who gave his life but as a father, husband, son and friend who consistently sacrificed his own interests for others.

A minor league baseball player, Ellis hung up his cleats and moved to Kentucky when his wife encountered a difficult pregnancy, said Brandon Young, his brother in law.

"Not only was Jason a family man worth praising and a friend worth having, but Jason was a follower of a call worth answering," Young told the mourners.

"Jason has now become a fallen hero worth honoring," Young continued, saying Ellis provided a Christ-like example to lay down his life for others.

"Early this past Saturday morning, a beloved husband, father, son, brother and friend exhibited this great love," Young said. "Jason gave his life for his country, for his community, for his family, for all of us. Jason Ellis was a warrior. He was greatly loved. he will be greatly missed. May we make it part of our own life's mission to ensure that he is never forgotten, that he is forever honored."

Amy Phillips Ellis - Wife
& two sons, Hunter Ellis and Parker Ellis all of Bloomfield; mother, Pamela Sue Dearwester of Cincinnati; two sisters, Kelly (Andy) Ellis Eastman, and Lacey (Brandon) Ellis Young both of Amelia, Ohio; three nieces; and four nephews.

Fallen Bardstown police officer Jason Ellis' partner Figo, center, pays his last respects, Thursday, May 30, 2013, at High View Cemetery in Chaplin.

Man's best friend and a brother in blue — two unbreakable bonds, even after death.

Figo, a police dog, bowed his muzzle and reached his paw out to touch the smooth wood of a casket. On the other side lay K-9 Officer Jason Ellis, 33, who died five days earlier in an ambush.

As a canine, Figo could never understand all that goes into keeping Bardstown, Ky., safe. But the human toll in the line of duty, the loss of a friend… he got that.
