My prayers are with the family of Jim Olterman. He truly is a hero. He gave his life to save another. As a family who has lost a hero, and a fellow Coloradoan. Please know that God is with you at this tragic time. One day at a time.

Such selflessness will not go unrewarded. God bless you for thinking about your fellow employees safety above your own. You and your family and friends will be in our prayers.

P.O. Doug Eatherton
St. Louis City Police

It is no surprise to me that even in the face of death he chose to put another's life in front of his own, THAT is a true hero his family can be proud of. My prayers to all who knew and loved him. He joins an ever growing family of law enforcement officers who patrol a heavenly beat....

A Vietnam Vet, a pilot, a biologist, an LEO, and a HERO!!! What an inspiration you are to those you've left behind. Godspeed to you as you soar with eagles. To the passenger of the plane-No time for guilt or self recrimination. That was not his intention when he gave his life, so that you may live. Honor his deeds and his memory by being the best possible person you can be. God Bless to all in their time of sorrow.
