She was a former fugitive recovery agent, but she passed away, and I like wearing her jacket for respect and comfort.... but can i get in trouble?
Of course it is, just like I could wear a police or "FBI" outfit on Halloween and not get into any manner of trouble, should I feel so inclined. Just don't start to pass yourself off as an authority in some official capacity which you are not, else you can get into an area not contemplated in the scope of your question.

You're not going to have a problem unless you do something that causes one. Just wearing the jacket will not be an issue no different than if I wear a FBI cap. But if I present to the public that I was an FBI agent this is a crime and not the same thing.

If you own the jacket, it is yours. Don't pretend to be an agent, but if wearing the jacket gives you comfort, feel free.
