I was just informed of Jimmy's passing, and am saddened at this news. To the family, I worked with Jimmy at Allstate, and was always captivated by Jimmy's ability to work a room and be in control of a situation. He always did right by others and looked for a win-win outcome. His sense of humor and uniqueness was as individual as a fingerprint. His spirit lives on as he will be missed.

Jimmy was one of my dearest and long standing friends from Beatlefest. I met him in the 80s when both Jamie and Michelle were little. He always brightened my day - funny is an understatement. My best to Jamie, Michelle and Pat. Jimmy will be surely missed. Anytime I think of him, I smile - a true friend. All the best - rest in peace my friend. Bob Adamonis, Seattle

I never had the opportunity to meet or speak to Jim which I regret. We shared a passion for the Beatles which I'm sure would have led to our paths crossing at some point. My sincerest condolences go out to Jim's family and friends.
