Reflections for Police Officer George August Tessier, III

I still have problems accepting that I won't see george when I pull into the parking lot at the beginning of each shift, buy I'm reminded everday as I pass his "scene" on the way to work that we have all been cheated out of george's influence. I was fortunate enough to have worked with george both in the 8th district and in traffic division and will challenge anyone to find a negative in his performance or personality. We miss you greatly george! Tony Pontiff

I just found out that we lost Tessier. My name is Anthanese Boissiere I had the honor of working with Tessier in the 8th district when I was on the force; I resigned form NOPD in 2001 to pursue my calling in the Ministry. Some of the things I will always remember about Tessier he always had a high level energy, the love for his job, and how he would always make you laugh. I remember the last time I spoke with him before I resigned we were outside of PJ’s Coffee House talking about the future. I mentioned to him about the possibility of leaving and working for Benn Hinn Ministry on the Executive Protection staff. I remember him saying “You should go that’s something you love doing and it will pay more it’s better for you and your family.” I will always remember Tessier, especially the last time we spoke to each other. To Tessier’s family; may the Lord continue to bring us comfort and bless us for our great lost.

I met George at the 2004 Law Ride and Poker Run with all of his other buddies. He had a big goofy smile and was a lot of fun to be around. As a fellow motor officer I am deeply saddened at word of his passing. I only wish I could have known him better. To all his friends and family I pass my condolences and best wishes. God Bless.

Motor Officers
It sounds like thunder far away, but the skies are blue and bright...
And soon they crest the hill nearby, and ride into our sight.
They shake the ground with powerful sound, and they make some hearts beat fast...
They look so proud and noble, like Knights come from the past.
Side by side, they always ride, and seem to move as one...
From early in the morning light, to the setting of the sun.
And children point and wave to them, from cars that pass them by...
And young ones ask their parents, why the men have mirrors for eyes.
They ride the roads, and fight for good, and defend small ones like you...
They ask to ride, and do with pride, and sometimes they are few.
Like men of steel, on Silver Wings, they sparkle in the light...
then with a roar and rumble, they ride out of our sight.
Sometimes when one has fallen, never to ride again...
You can hear the others calling, like thunder on the wind.
Side by side, they slowly ride, and their thunder is a mournful sound...
And the mirrors hide their eyes from us, when teardrops fall to ground.
So if you see one riding, and you look into his face...
You see your reflection in his eyes, you know that you are safe.
For motormen are a special breed, they love to ride the wind...
And when you hear the thunder boom, the fallen ones ride again.

I am so very saddened to hear of the passing of our friend George. The LA gang of officers met the MO gang of officers at Law Ride 2004 in May, and George was really pushing those NO tee shirts! He was a hoot and an instant friend. My condolences go out to those of you who had the pleasure to work closely with him and to his family.

We'll miss you man....

Officer Tessier was a credit to the city of New Orleans. He not only protected the citizens of New Orleans but he he always had a smile on his face and was willing to help anyone, making not only a public servant but also an ambassador for the city that will be missed and never forgotten.

George was like a brother to me. I've known him for over 12 years, and we became such close friends. It still hurts so much, but I know in my heart that he would always want us to be smile and be happy. George gave of himself like no other. He really hustled to help anyone who needed it.

George: I will never forget the times we had together. You became a very important part of my life, and I wouldn't be what I am today without you. God bless you, for I know I was blessed to know you.

It's taken me a few weeks to think of something to say about Georgie, so I will tell about the last two times I saw him. George, Troy Williams, Chris Goodly, and myself had just worked a detail together at the House of Blues, that was July 4th. We had alot of fun that night. That was the last time we were all together. The last time I saw him was a couple days before his passing, George and little Joe were writing tickets on Franklin Ave. He was standing there in his motorcycle pants and I yelled out of the car how sexy he looked in his tight pants, in typical Georgie fashion he turned around and blew me a kiss. George was a character, and we don't have alot of characters left on this job anymore. What else can I tell you about him, except to say that he was my friend and I will miss him. I love you my brother and one day we will all work a detail together again.

AS I SIT HERE AND RIGHT THIS I AM TRYING NOT TO GRY, BECAUSE THAT'S WHAT YOU SAID YOU WANTED IF YOU EVER LEFT US, BUT HOLDING BACK THE TEARS IS SO INCREDIBLY HARD. IT IS ONE OF THE HARDEST THINGS I HAVE EVER HAD TO TRY TO DO. WHEN YOU LEFT I CALLED YOUR CELL ABOUT A HUNDRED TIMES HOPING IT WAS A BIG JOKE YOU PLAYED ON US, YOU DID LOVE TO JOKE. BTW I AM NOT A GROUPIE, LOL. ALL I GOT THO WAS YOUR VOICEMAIL, AT LEAST I COULD HEAR YOUR VOICE. I WILL ALWAYS REMEMBER MY FAVORITE COUSIN, AKA UNCLE GEORGE, AND IF I EVER HAVE ASON I WILL NAME HIM AFTER YOU B/C I CAN ONLY HOPE A CHILD OF MINE WILL BE AS WONDERFUL AS YOU WERE. I LOVE YOU AND MISS YOU SO MUCH.
I KNOW YOU HAVE EVERYONE IN HEAVEN BURSTIN AT THE SEEMS WITH LAUGHTER.

One week ago you were taken away from us without warning. Although you are not with us on earth, "GEORGE" YOU WILL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN. The following day was even more painful as I knew we were scehduled to work a detail together and you would not be there with me. Things will never be the same without you. The old saying 'Only the good die young' turned out to be very true. But in this case I guess god needed you more so he took one of the best. Thank you for all the humor and charisma you possessed and everything you did while you were here with us.

May you rest in eternal peace George. My prayers are with you, your family, and friends.

Until we meet again, I MISS YOU, I LOVE YOU and GOD BLESS YOU.

I have read so many things about George and what a great person he was. He was loved by so many people and will be missed...but not forgotten. I regret I never got to know him, but I (and every other law enforcement member) feels the loss. Thank you George, for your service and for what you meant to everybody who knew you. God bless you, your family, and all your friends.
