Reflections for Investigator Jesse Wilburn Jones

Investigator Jones,
On today, the 75th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for our Country-not just with the IRS but also when you served with the U.S. Army and U.S. Border Patrol as well. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

I was married to his son, Wilburn Peyton Jones (1939-1988). I remember him as I was a child when the family moved near us and he and his boys would walk to town by our house! My youngest son is Jesse Wilburn Jones II.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 64th 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.

My uncle, our grandfather's namesake, just found this page today and sent it to all of us. We so appreciate the kind comments you have written. None of us ever knew our grandfather as he died before his own children were grown. This is such a nice way to have a place for reflection. Thank you.

Some see the job you did, and the job done by those who came after, as government interference. Some see it as just another way for Uncle Sam to take money from it's citizens. They are wrong, very wrong. What you and people like you were and still are doing is as much protecting the unsuspecting public from poisons coming from unlicensed and unregulated sources. Without oversight, what some may see as a quaint tradition might be in reality nothing more than a death warrant for the purchaser. Your enforcement of those laws did indeed bring tax revenue to our government, but it also saved lives. It's sad that it took yours. You were and still are a hero.

God Bless and may you continue to Rest in Peace, Brother.
