Jeff Ruby has again dug into his pockets to seek justice for a selfless cause.  According to Ruby's twitter account (@TheREALJeffRuby):

Officer Ellis was ambushed from above on Bluegrass Pky. Need reward press coverage all over state of Kentucky Premeditated. I read reward was $6000 that's y I made it 33k Jason was 33years old.

Jason Ellis, 33, was killed Saturday in what police called an ambush at an exit off the parkway. He was a K-9 officer for the Bardstown department, but his dog, Figo, was not with him when he was shot. This picture, originally posted on Reddit (courtesy Lexington Herald Leader), where it immediately became popular. 
He had stopped to remove some debris in the road when he was shot multiple times with a shotgun by an unknown assailant.
Ellis, a Glen Este graduate, had become a staple within the Bardstown community as he was slain 7 years to the day he was sworn into the Bardstown Police Department. He and his wife, Amy, had two sons: Hunter, 7, and Parker, 6.
Ruby will be adding to an already established reward fund. The fund in the case has surpassed $100,000, including a $50,000 donation from Louisville businessman Gus Goldsmith.
According to the Bardstown Police Department's Facebook page, here's how to donate to either the officer's family or the reward fund set up through the family and the Fraternal Order of Police, Lodge 43:
Make checks payable to Officer Jason Ellis Memorial Fund or the Officer Jason Ellis Reward Fund. Specify which fund.
Checks can be sent in each fund's name to Chief Rick McCubbin, Bardstown Police Department, 212 Nelson County Plaza, Bardstown, Ky., 40004. Donations also can be made at any Muir Bank branch in Bardstown.
