RIP Great Uncle Jim. I just came across this memorial for you. I followed in your your footsteps and was an LEO for 25 years, since retired. I was one of the very lucky ones who made it through my career. It's an honor knowing that a family member was and is a hero. Thank for your Service and ultimate sacrifice.

Great Uncle Jim, I am your namesake, I knew you as my Dad's favorite Uncle. I am one of four very beloved brothers and sisters, who knew of our dad's love for you. I found your name etched in granite on a memorial near the World Trade Center, overlooking the Hudson yesterday. It took my breath away to see your heroism remembered this way, surrounded by the names of hundreds of NY Hero's.
Gone for almost 90 years now, but you are absolutely not forgotten by your family, this generation or the next. It is an honor to be related to you. Rest in Peace.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 85th 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 and your memory will always be honored and revered.

Rest In Peace.

I said a little prayer today for Patrolman Masterson and his family. He may be gone but never forgotten. He will always be a New York HERO.
