Assembly resolution to recognize Dublin’s Ault

A Dublin man who died last April while serving in Operation Iraqi Freedom, is being recognized in a resolution before the Virginia General Assembly.
Sixth District Del. Anne B. Crockett-Stark (R-Wytheville) is sponsoring House Joint Resolution 690 (HJ 690) “Celebrating the life of Staff Sgt. Jesse A. Ault,” which has been agreed upon by the House and now is before the Senate.
Ault was killed in the line of duty April 9 when his vehicle struck an improvised explosive device (IED) during operations near Tunnis, Iraq. He is survived by his wife, Betsy, and their three children, Adam, Nathan and Rachel.
The resolution recognizes Ault for “valiantly serving his country.” It goes on to say that Ault’s death “is a reminder of the perils faced daily by the thousands of Americans who serve in our armed forces overseas and whose devotion to duty places them in harm’s way.”
It outlines various aspects of Ault’s life, including the fact that he grew up in West Virginia and graduated from Tyler Consolidated High School — joining the Army with his best friend and completing basic and advanced training with him at Fort Bragg.
Ault served four years active duty in the Army before moving to Virginia and joining the Virginia National Guard, according to HJ 690. He met Betsy Ault, also a veteran, during a summer training exercise in 2002 and they grew closer while both of their units were deployed in Iraq.
“A conscientious and professional soldier and a devoted family man … Ault re enlisted and took his wife’s place when she was recalled to active duty so she could remain home” with the children, the resolution states.
The document goes on to point out Ault was a fan of West Virginia University sports, NASCAR’s Jeff Gordon, Denver Broncos football and Atlanta Braves baseball. His hobbies included fishing and golfing.
Ault “will be fondly remembered by his wife, family and many friends as a loving and dedicated father and husband and a brave and loyal soldier,” the resolution continues.
It states that the General Assembly notes “with great sadness the loss of a courageous and patriotic Virginian.”
The resolution instructs that a copy of it be presented to his family “as an expression of the high regard in which his memory is held by the members of the General Assembly and the citizens of the Commonwealth.”
Ault was a motor transport operator assigned to the National Guard’s E Company, 429th Brigade Support Battalion, based in Roanoke.
He is buried in Highland Memory Gardens at Dublin.
