I'm sorry to hear of Jim's passing. I'm thankful that I was a part of Jim's BGMS family. I always appreciated his cheerful greetings and the kindness and patience that he always showed to students and colleagues.

Jim was a good role model for all of us-- adults and students alike. I have never been a sports fan, but Jim convinced me that playing sports on a team was an important opportunity for our students. He went out of his way to welcome and encourage kids to join in whether they were enthusiastic athletes, or just kids who needed to belong. I know that he must have been a positive force in the lives of many in his work as a dedicated teacher, coach, and athletic director.

I will always remember Jim with fondness and respect. He was a true gentleman.
