The Executive Board and members of the NYC Retired Transit Police Officers Association extend our deepest condolences and sympathies to Rita and the entire DeMeis family on the passing of our fellow officer and friend's passing. John was affectionately known as "John The Cop" with many stories during his career and was one of our chaplains in the association for many years. He will be missed. May he Rest in Peace.
