I meet Jaime and Martha when we were both stationed in Denver, Co and worked at the Air Force Accounting and Finance Center on Lowry AFB back in the mid 1980s. To me, Jaime had the gift of gab...he could talk an eskimo into buying an ice cream . I say that because he talked me into applying for an assignment to Florennes Air Base, Belgium with him. He said that we would have a blast over there. Well...low and behold, I got the one year assignment to Belgium and Jaime got to stay in Denver eating "super's" from Arby's without me....lol

Peace to you my brother. David

I knew Jaime briefly, when he was a part of Enscicon Corp. in Denver. I had just gotten out of the Army an joined Enscicon. Jaime was an amazing human being, he was smart, kind and really helped me get my feet under me when I was trying to figure out how to be a civilian. Martha and family: my condolences, I'm so sorry for your loss.
