My deepest condolences to the entire Bohara family on the unexpected passing of Jim, Jr. I have fond memories of playing basketball with him and his Dad along with others in the hoop group. I truly do understand the heartache and terrible loss and void and roller coaster of emotions you are currently experiencing. Our 26 year old son, Tyler, passed unexpectedly on October 18th. Jim, Jr’s legacy lives on in all whose lives he touched. I pray for him and all of you and I am confident he will send you signs to let you know that he is still with you in spirit. Jim, Sr, I will be in touch in the near future Pal. Big hugs. Greg Carnese

Jimbo... What a cool dude... Met you a long time ago. Before I knew your younger brother. Such a gem you were and will be surely missed. I know what I write is only words but please know you were a very impacting person in my life. Miss you buddy and hope all is well now. Someday I hope to be able to pay rightly respects. You died too soon but on a very rightly date. Love you. Danimal.. The doorman.

I will always remember the biggest buck of my buck of my life was brought in by you. Rattling antlers on the back corner of my property. Even though we haven't talked in a long time and our times together weren't always the greatest I will cherish the times out on the water and out in the woods. Till we meet again, rest easy Jimbo.

In our youth, I knew him for a short time. Nothing but positive memories because he was a positive guy. He was a nice person who never spoke ill of anyone. I remember he was a man who I respected. Sorry he’s gone.
