Jim was a great co-worker, director and friend. We worked on a number of Pharmacy projects together through the years as Trinity developed it's new Moline campus and then Bettendorf campus. I worked as a lead pharmacist under Jim and then he transitioned to my third shift pharmacist in Bettendorf. Always thoughtful and professional. You will be missed, respectfully Glenn Miller

Jim was a friend and classmate at University of Iowa College of Pharmacy. It was always fun to spend time with him. His easy sense of humor kept me laughing. I feel fortunate to have known him.
My sincere condolences to the family.

Dear Family,

I am so sorry for your loss. I worked with Jim at Trinity, mainly when he worked at the Bettendorf campus. He would always come in at night with a smile and would have that same smile in the morning. He was such a nice guy.

I have so many memories of Jim through the College of Pharmacy up to 10 days prior to his being in the hospital. We were known to get together often & play marathon golf. We talked, laughed and chalked up 54 holes one day! I have lost a great friend. We have lost a great man.
Rest in peace.

I’ll always have fond memories of working with Jim at St. Luke’s Hospital. We were both starting our Pharmacy careers and shared a great deal of enthusiasm for our new found profession. It was always fun following the Hawkeyes, playing a round of golf and enjoying a beer with Jim.

We have lost a great guy, but have lots of wonderful college memories that we will forever cherish. Our heartfelt sympathy to Jim's Family and Friends. Lucky to have hung out with him back in the day. We both appreciated a good Chicago Bear game, and He was even fairly tolerable as a St. Louis Cardinal fan.
He will be forever missed, but I am very grateful for being able to stay in touch over the years.
May you find solace and comfort through God's Blessings.

My life was more complete after having met Jim. I immediately considered him a friend. He offered positivity, support , encouragement and information as I went through the loss of 2 siblings after my moving back to the QCA. He will be missed by many as he touched many many lives. My condolences and prayers to his wife and entire family, may he rest peacefully.
