Memories Timeline


  1. I started my law career with Jim under Joe Losavio. Enjoyed many great discussions and a good friendship with him-some fun time in the local nightlife, too. Went four wheeling over Tincup pass in his RX-7. What a ride, Jim! Warm thoughts to his family.

  2. My thoughts and prayers are with Jim and his wonderful family. We had some great times over the years. I love you all. He can now rest in peace.

  3. Jim was an amazing guy. He was one of my husband\’s best friends. He was intelligent, loving, funny and would do anything for you. He never complained of pain while enduring so much in his final years. We\’ll miss him terribly.

  4. Our condolences go out to the whole Mayer family. My family has been friends with them for many years. We shared great times when we were young.God bless you and may you find peace in Jim\’s passing.

  5. My thoughts and prayers are with all of the Mayer family. Jim was a treasure to all who knew him. I will always hold a special place in my heart for Jim and his family. Our families shared many fun times together growing up.

  6. You were such a nice guy. When we needed “lawyer” advice and went to see you, you were very helpful and kind. I have always appreciated that! Rest in Peace. Your cousin Therese Whitlock Grater and husband Lee Grater.

  7. Jim was one man who was respected by all who knew him both friend and foe.
    He never backed down and was a man of his word. Always willing to help, always a man of his word.
    We will miss his advise and humor.

  8. Jim sincerely was one of the nicest, kindest, loving people I’ve ever known. Just as Bobbi said, he would do anything for you. His children were the loves of his life. My thoughts and prayers are with everyone touched and blessed by knowing him. Jim was a true hero, both on the battlefield and in life.

  9. Jim was a long time friend, from our school years at Pleasant View School, Pueblo County High School, and the years thereafter. Jim always took the time to my husband, Jack, and I whenever we visited Pueblo. He will be forever be in our hearts and our condolences to his family and friends. We will all miss him.

  10. Jim Mayer is my hero. This was a man who had every right to complain about his treatment by the VA, but NEVER uttered the slightest complaint. He accepted his severe war injuries (and they were drastic). I have known Jim for over 30 years and I will always list him as one of my dearest and most loyal friends, I could always count on him for anything…anything. Rest in peace, Jim. We all love you.

  11. I only saw and talked to Jim a couple of times. He was a dedicated and true friend to Harvey Mizel. Harvey will miss him tremendously, as we all will. He fought a good fight. Rest in Peace Jim.

  12. Jim you were a great friend. I will always remember the year you were student council president and I was secretary. What a year…mr Ellis gave us a bucket list we thought we couldn’t do……but we did it! You were the smartest person I to Dennis Derrington. Now you can meet your friends again and walk in the valley of peace. You deserve it. Your good friend, Tomma

  13. Jim, I always thought you were a great guy. You were so good for my dad. He cared for you dearly. I hope you are at great peace. You will be missed.

  14. To Madelyn, I want to extend my deepest sympathy for the loss of your son and to Bill, Ruth Ann and Mary Jane please accept my deepest sympathy for the loss of your brother. For all other family members I want to extend my sympathy to you as well.
