Some further history on Jim....QUOTE.....Sunday, May 12, 2013
It is with deep regrets to inform you that this afternoon, we lost a “Man for the Ages” with the passing of Jim “Lord Jim” Ellson, Sr. He lost his battle to cancer. He gave more to his family, his fellow firefighters and to the many friends he made along the way than to his own personal self. Chief Jack Murphy provides us with just a brief histroy of Jim:

Jim’s stellar fire service career began in 1960, where as a Probie he responded to his first of many numerous major incidents, when two planes collided over the city (12/16/60) with one plane crashing in the Park Slope section of Brooklyn and the other coming down in Staten Island. Within 3 days after this mid-air collision, he was battling the famous major fire on the USS Constellation aircraft carrier that killed 50 workers. The ship was under construction in the Brooklyn Naval Yard.

Some Fire & OEM Career Highlights of Captain Ellson:
FDNY: Firefighter/E65 & L102
Lieut./L124. It was here at L124 that he got the nickname, “Lord Jim”,while serving as a fellow officer along with Peter Ganci. Pete later became the Chief of Department.
Lieut./R-1
Captain/Squad-1
SOC Executive Officer to Deputy Chief Ray Downey
USAR/Task Force-1 Team Leader
Deputy Commissioner in the Mayor’s Office of Emergency Management
Instructor: FDNY fire academy
John Jay College fire science and emergency management programs
Guest lecturer at many state and national forums
Fire Safety Directors Association (NYC)/Board Member
FDIC Education Team (1997-2005)
NYS/DHS, his last gig working logistics for Superstorm Sandy

Throughout his career, the vast response experiences from 1960 to September 11th and beyond has served as a broad knowledge base that he would share in a more perfect union of fire and emergency management expertise.

Despite being cited for many Department Service Rating Medals and Unit Citations for bravery, his humbling demeanor spoke volumes as to his character, never seeking any accolades, but always applauding firefighters who were acting as one.

Here is an example of his character, last year he received an EZ Pass late notice bill for passing through a toll booth on the New Jersey Turnpike, the vehicle license plate read, ”Tonka Truck”. While Jim sold his car more than 25 years ago with this plate, he passed the old plate along to his former company, L124. Rather than contest the EZPass as to the type of vehicle photographed on camera, Jim paid the fine of $50.00 over a challenge to pay a 90 cents toll fee.

His is the best friend that one could ever have in his/her life. In one of the many conversations we have had over the years, he once told me a quote from Fr. Mychal Judge “That no matter how hard it gets, God has a plan for you”

When Jim arrived at the Gates of Heaven today, St. Peter needed to put crowd control management plan in place. He will remain a ‘Beacon of Light’ in our hearts with all he has shared with us. God Speed, Brother Jim.

These are the Greatest Generation of Firefighters. No other group of firefighters had to face the dangers of fighting fires so often. They overcame extermely difficult conditions. There probably will never group like them.

For those that have passed on, May they Rest in Peace.
