We lost another CPD legend...Det. Jim Elliott passes away... here is the posting at the Disable Cop Blog


It is great sadness and a heavy heart to report the passing of Retired Officer Jim Elliott this morning at 9:00 a.m.. Jim was also a board member of the Disabled Chicago Police Officer's Association and proud supporter of disabled officer's causes. Our condolences to Karolyn, his children, and extended large family! "WE WILL MISS YOU!!"


The following email was sent to all his family and friends.

This is Jack Elliott again, after Dad's good day this week his health started to decline and we got a call from the hospital today asking about resuscitation. The Doc said we might have time to get there. We hurried there and I dropped Karolyn off while I parked. She ran in and his numbers were flat she told him that she loved him his pulse flickered back as if to say Goodbye. His heart had given out and that was all he had left. He passed away around 9 am this morning. He fought hard and long and was a wonderful Father and Husband. We thank him for being everything to us and will always remember him for the wonderful things he did. He wanted his last internet post to be "So Long Folks, That's All!"

One of the Best Guys I've ever met OTJ. If you knew Jim you were lucky, if you didn't know him you missed one of the BEST.
