Who Was The Fallen Police Officer?

Sgt. C.J. Lewis was the fallen police officer honored on September 19 during the “I Need A Favor” singer’s concert in Oklahoma. He was a 13-year veteran of the Edmond Police Department. Edmond is located just north of Oklahoma and it is considered to be a part of the Greater Oklahoma City Metro Area.

Jelly Roll’s Shout Out

During his concert at the PayCom Center, the country music star took time out to speak with fans between songs. It was during one such break, Jelly Roll noticed a memorial shirt someone in the audience was wearing. The shirt was honoring Sgt. C.J. Lewis.

“I want to say rest in peace to C.J.” the “I Need A Favor” singer said. “I love you and I’m glad your family’s here. I’m praying for y’all.”

Jelly Roll Now Wanted By The Edmond Police
