On Tuesday, October 4, 2022, James Blasco, loving husband, and father of five, passed away at the age of 69. James, fondly called Jim, was born October 30, 1952, in Riverside, CA as the youngest of five siblings. His family moved to Las Vegas, NV when Jim was 6 months old. He is preceded in death by his father, Joseph, and mother, Mary.
Jim met his beloved wife, Pamela, in high school at 14 years old. Jim and Pam just celebrated 51 years of marriage. They raised 5 wonderful children: James Jr. Blasco, Sarah Joy, Andrew Blasco, Brian Blasco & Emily Mitchell. Jim leaves 4 grandchildren: Sienna, Bella, Maclin, and Kora.
Jim has always been an integral part of the Las Vegas community and is beloved by many. He is a Bishop Gorman and UNLV alumni. As a builder and developer, Jim watched the small town of Las Vegas grow into the city it is today. His passions were his family, work, and golf. His spirit was strong, his soul was pure, and his legacy will continue living through his children and grandchildren. He will be dearly missed by all.

New Vista provides programs which offer opportunities for our members to live life to the fullest! At the core of all of New Vista's programs is the belief that people of all abilities are equally worthy of dignity and respect. Our programs offer unique activities and experiences which promote independence, friendship, and opportunities for greater inclusion.
New Vista was founded in 1986 by parents of individuals with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities who were concerned what would happen to their loved ones when they were gone or could no longer care for them. Out of this need we created the first program: “New Vista Ranch.”
