Been together since ground ops days, about 1993ish?
Always a pleasure to talk sports and reminisce.
Very awesome to meet your daughters at my daughter's engagement party. Beautiful kids!
Rest In Peace, buddy! I'll miss you!

Wojo would show up every year that we held the MCO Golf Tournament. Some years he even showed up “early” which meant one extra day of buffoonery but those were some of the best memories I have of him. He always made sure he invited me to his tournament in BNA to return the favor of hosting. That was Wojo, always remembering his friends. I wish I had been able to grant one of his wishes, he would text me every year and “volunteer” to work The Masters just in case we needed him. I guess he will have an annual ticket with the best seats since they say Augusta is heaven and we all know that is where Jim is now, R.I.P. Wojo. You will be dearly missed and your humor and kindness will never be forgotten.

Wojo was truly one of a kind. He could do devilish things (lead the other classroom into ours and crop dust our room till we had to leave) and help us study in the hotel on the floor when we were sweating the next test.

I know you; Heidi and his precious girl are truly one of a kind. May your memories sustain you in your grief. We all celebrate knowing him! ❤️🙏🏻

Wojo
I have such great memories of flying with you. I will never forget the military charter we did. I think we did every line from the movie Stripes. Miss you my friend.

Wojo,

I have so many amazing memories working with you over the years, the one that really stands out is when we overnighted in STL and that was your very first date with Heidi and I got to meet her! You were like a kid in a candy store talking about her, you could tell by that first date she was the one.

Sending prayers to your entire family . Fly high my friend. ♥️

Jim and I got stranded in Ontario, CA when the Southwest system crashed a few years ago. We were sitting around waiting for 5 hours in the airport for an airplane. Once our plane arrived there was no AC onboard! I was sweating so bad by the time we got to Las Vegas and Jim called to say we were stranded there! We sat on the floor in the Vegas airport FOREVER it seemed!! We got to our hotel and I was so grateful for Jim. I would have never made it through that day without him. He was such a special person. He helped me through quite a few things in the years I knew him. I’m so sorry for the loss of this beautiful soul.

I had the pleasure to fly with WoJo back in the day. We both started around the same time. Never a dull moment and always that look over top of his glasses whenever I had a blonde moment. R.I.P. my friend. You will be greatly missed❤️

I am so saddened to have just learned of Jim's passing. As a family friend, I know what a wonderful son, brother, husband and father he was. He brightened the lives of family and his many friends. May he rest in peace.
