It is with deep sadness that Acting Superintendent Steven G. James must inform you of the death of New York State Trooper John M. Grassia III. Trooper Grassia, 30, lost his life on Friday, March 8, 2024, while serving our country as a pilot in the National Guard.  Trooper Grassia was on a federal mission with the National Guard when his helicopter crashed near the southern border of Texas. 

Trooper Grassia joined the New York State Police on April 4, 2022. His last assignment was at SP Livingston, Troop K, and just prior to deployment he was transferred to Troop G, SP Fonda.

Trooper Grassia's sacrifice and his commitment to the service of New Yorkers and all Americans will never be forgotten.
