Greenville police officers helped make a maternity shoot special for the widow of their colleague and friend.
Jessie Ellex of J. Ellex Photography, who has been best friends with Meghan M. Jacobs for more than 15 years, took the pictures.
Meghan’s husband, Allen Jacobs, was killed in the line of duty by a gang member on March 18 on Laurens Road, S.C.
“On March 18, 2016, this beautiful mother-to-be and newlywed lost her husband in the line of duty in Greenville, South Carolina. Officer Allen Jacobs was a well decorated army veteran and devoted police officer to the Greenville community. Meghan M Jacobs is expecting a baby girl in July and I was given the honor to capture these photographs for her,” the photographer wrote on her Facebook page on June 20, which has since been shared over 79,000 times, with more than 90,000 likes.
Officer Jacobs, a four-and-a-half year veteran of the police department, is survived not only by his wife and unborn daughter, but by two young boys.
