Jarvis has only been on the job for a little more than a year.

He is a second generation trooper.

His father was Troop Commander of the Meridian District.

Thursday (5-2), the Columbus Exchange Club honored Jarvis.

Trooper Jarvis says, “I kind of try to model myself on what I saw my dad be for so long. That’s to use good common sense, remember to do what’s best for the people and do your job at the same time. ”

With all his hard work, there is no telling how man live Trooper Jarvis saved over the last year.
