Reflections for City Marshal Charles Benjamin Jones

Charles Benjamin Jones was my grandfather. I never knew him but heard many family stories, including how he died. I have a copy of the newspaper account of the accident and his wedding photo to my grandmother, who remained at Jacksonville Beach her whole life. I will try to get the photos I have to your site to add to his file

Time may have passed but you are not forgotten. I believe as long as someone remembers you or speaks your name, you are still with us.
Thank you for your heroism.
GOD Bless

To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 85th anniversary year of your death. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service. My cherished son Larry Lasater was a fellow police officer who was murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Time never diminishes respect. Your memory will always be honored and revered. Rest In Peace
