Deputy Jacob "Jake" M. Pickett
Jake was born in Columbus, Ohio to Marlin and Rebecca Pickett on December 20, 1983. He attended and graduated from Brownsburg High School. Jake took the necessary steps of starting his law enforcement career. He graduated from the Marion County Sheriff's Office Training Academy in 2010 and the Indiana Law Enforcement Academy in 2014 with class 202 as a pistol expert. He was employed with the Marion County Sheriff's Office from 2010-2013 as a detention deputy and was on the Sheriff's Presentation Corps. He received the County Correctional Officer of the Year in 2012 and the Sheriff's Jail Deputy of the Year in 2013. Jake moved on to the Tipton County Sheriff's Department from 2013-2015 serving as a Deputy. He joined the Boone County Sheriff's Department in 2015, where he served as a Taser instructor, K-9 Team Leader, K-9 handler, and a member of the Fraternal Order of Police #110. Jacob was a beloved husband and caring father. His selflessness emulated everyday; in uniform he would greet children at school or organize a Christmas card drive for a child. When off-duty, he would rescue animals with his wife. The happiest day for Jacob was when he became a father.
While serving as a Deputy with the Boone County Sheriff's Office, Jake was killed in the line of duty on Friday, March 2, 2018 in Lebanon, IN.
Jake is survived by his beloved wife of 10 years, Jennifer A. Pickett , his two sons, parents; Marlin and Rebecca Pickett, sister, Kristi M. Woo, niece; Hannah N. Woo, his faithful K-9 partner, Brik, parents-in-law; Jon and Carol Lindstrom, brothers-in-laws; Jeremy Lindstrom, Christopher Lindstrom and a host of other relatives and friends. A visitation will be held on Thursday, March 8, 2018 from 2-7 p.m., at Crown Hill Funeral Home, 700 W. 38th Street, Indianapolis, IN, 46208. A Celebration of Life Service will take place at Connection Pointe Christian Church, 1800 Green Street, Brownsburg, IN, 46112 on Friday, March 9, 2018 at 11:00 a.m. Burial at Crown Hill Cemetery.

Mrs. Pickett & Family. Thank you for sharing such a special man with us. We're sad & angry that Jake was taken from you at such young time in his life & in your families early building. Jacob made our world a better place & he is already missed by so many. I and so many did not get the opportunity to meet him. For that I am sad & angry. He's watching over you. He was a guardian angel here & God saw just how special & kind he was. God called upon him to keep Peace, Hope, Order, & Love alive in Heaven for our loved ones there now & for us when our time comes. I like to think he's making Heaven an even better place because he did that here! Thank you Deputy Jacob Pickett. Thank you Pickett Family for blessing us with such a special man. We are truly sorry for your loss. We're sending prayers to you & your extended family. Many Blessings.
