Our hearts are filled with the pain you are all feeling. Jim was a wonderful person and was taken from the ones he loved, and who loved him, too soon. He often thanked us for introducing him to Sharon, and she shared his sentimennts.

My heartfelt sympathies to the Cohen Family and Sharon. Jim had been my financial advisor for over 15 years, and he quickly became a friend. I could always ask him any question and his advice was sincere and good. I will miss hearing his voice over the phone every week. His humor and easy conversation will be sorely missed. He spoke of Amy and Sara so very often and of how proud he was of them. I could hear his smile over the phone when he told me he was going to be a grandfather. You are in our thoughts and prayers.

Please accept my deep sympathy on this loss. We were classmates at Fordham Law School and he always had a kind word of encouragement for all of us as we struggled with the material. He worked very hard. He loved sports and enlivened many a conversation with his views. We shared good times together.

My deepest condolences to the family. I was friendly with Jimmy in high school and remeber him for his wry sense of humor, passion for sports (especially the Yankees) and for being a good friend.
