Remembering Jacai Colson

In "Chi," they don't forget.

Jacai Colson was a star athlete at Chichester High School. He excelled on the football field.

But he was equally impressive off the field.

That was never more apparent than last March when three brothers with evil intentions showed up at the Landover, Md., police station where Colson, now an undercover police officer, worked.

Colson immediately took action to confront the men. In the mayhem that ensued, he was killed by friendly fire.

Last Saturday, they gathered on the same football field where Colson starred to remember the man they knew, loved and respected.

And his legacy will live on in the form of a scholarship to a Chi student seeking a career in law enforcement of public service.

Because in Chi, they don't forget.

It's on today's editorial page.
