Reflections for Sergeant Jack Lee Cooper

Growing up, my Grandfather, Sgt Ernest W. O'Connor - retired, spoke about Sgt Cooper with many fond memories and always spoke about what a great guy he was. They worked together for years and were good friends. My mother remembers as a little girl Sgt Cooper visiting her house with my Grandfather and always had kind words to say about him. My Grandfather said that Sgt Cooper's death was his saddest day as a policeman.
I'm sure his family knows this, but Sgt Cooper was well loved as a friend, father, husband and a brave policeman.
Rest in Peace.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 47th anniversary 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 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.

I pray for the solace of all those who love and remember you for I know both the pain and pride are forever. Your family is in my heart's embrace today

I was saddened to see that Christmas Day is the eow for so many, many officers. Rest In Peace.

It's been just over 44 years since that horrible Christmas day when I lost you. (that's longer then you were here.)
It seems that I miss you more and more as time passes.
I gave you two wonderful grandsons that I raised with the
values you guided me with. Both would have made you VERY proud. You were the best dad! I still miss the baseball games we attended, the fishing and crabing at sunrise and the dinners and movies we just the two of us took during the last years. I think and cry every day for the lost of my (even as a small child)hero. Love Always
