I knew and worked with Joe while serving as an operations officer with the Headquarters of US Army in Europe (USAEUR). Joe was the Command’s chief officer for anti-terrorism and security planning. His expertise was included in all operations and exercise orders, affecting up to 40,000 Army personnel, and bilateral training missions with over a dozen East European countries. He had a strong and positive reputation for anti-terrorism and military police experience from his time in the Persian Gulf War and Iraq. Joe will bring in 21st Century ideas as Santa Clara County Sheriff.
Joe LaJeunesse has demonstrated exceptional leadership during his military service and law enforcement career, making him the perfect candidate for Sheriff.
I have known Joe for 22 years. He is humble, honorable, and will work hard to bring positive change to Santa Clara County.
I have known Joe La Jeunesse for nearly 30 years, from his time as a young soldier through his military promotions and his career with the Santa Clara County Sheriff’s Department. He has always exhibited concern and love for his country and community and the highest personal ethics.
Beyond a doubt, Joe La Jeunesse is the most qualified candidate for Sheriff. As a United States Army Officer, Joe has done it all. In all he does, Joe exemplifies the seven Army values of Loyalty, Duty, Respect, Service, Integrity, Honor and Courage. Joe will use those qualities to create a better Sheriff’s Office for Santa Clara County.
Joe has been a friend for the many years we served together as officers in the military and since his retirement from the Army. He cares about getting the job done while taking care of his people. He will be a great Sheriff.
