To the family of Mr. Pallace,

I am so sorry for the loss of your loved one. I remember Mr. Pallace very well from EVT. I adored him and the principal, Mr. Pluemer. I regret that I found out about his passing too late to pay my respects. My condolences to the family. He looks just as I remember him. With much love, Tonya

My condolences to the family of Mr. Pallace. That is how I remember him. He was an inspiring history teacher who cared so much about each student. He came several times to the Kenwood Class of '66 reunions and he was so welcomed. He is a teacher who touched many students over the years. May he rest in peace.

I had the honor of working as principal at Eastern Tech for the 2003 - 2007 school years. I enjoyed the opportunity to frequently talk with Jim about the history of the school, education in general, and other philosophical points. I am very sorry to hear about his passing, but I know that he had a positive impact on countless students and staff members during his career.

I was fortunate to cross paths with Mr. Pallace during the early days in my career as a teacher when he was still hanging around the halls of Eastern Tech as a substitute teacher. Although, I was never one of Mr. Pallace's students in the traditional sense, he offered invaluable mentorship and guidance as I was starting out my career. I mostly learned from him that above all else, providing students with a loving and nurturing environment was most important. And that family always comes first, but your students and fellow faculty members are a close second. I am grateful to have known and worked with Mr. Pallace.

So sorry to hear of Mr. Pallace's passing... Jimmy III, and I played little league baseball together on the Parkville Allstar team in 1972. Have very found memories of Mr Pallace, as a manager, mentor, and later as my Vice Principal at EVT, (CLASS OF 80).... He always had my back, and took a special interest in my wellbeing since our Parkville connection...... i will always remember his kindness.... my thoughts and prayers go out to Jimmy and the rest of your family.....

To Mr. Pallace’s family I send condolences and thank you for letting us know. His long life enabled him to touch many. We can keep his legacy to go on as we pass on to others what he taught - to encourage young people to see other perspectives and options.
I cherished comments he wrote on my history papers (Class of 65) until adulthood. He was a fine person.
His kindness helped a shy child become a better.

Mr. Pallace worked at ETHS while I was there. I vividly remember his voice and laugh. He knew how to ha e a good time, but always made sure we behaved and got our work done. Mr. Pallace loved to tell stories and would listen to us always! He was a good man!

I took his World History class my first year at Kenwood and was so excited when they offered his Ancient & Medieval History class for us to take. It's hard to describe what a wonderful teacher he was. He didn't just teach history but inspired all of us to be the best we could be. He truly cared about his students and I believe I can speak for all when I say it was 100% reciprocated. I was so happy when he joined Facebook and I was able to reconnect with him. The world has lost a wonderful person and the best teacher I ever had. I am just one of his 1964 graduates that respected and cared about him all through our lives. To his family, please accept my deepest sympathy.
