There is really no way to express my memories and the impact Jim had on my life in writing. Those that truly knew Jim, would probably understand the contradiction that was Jim, as he was a rather complex man, with strong opinions, an unrelenting pursuit of what he saw as right, a stubbornness that could be frustrating, while at the same time being a truly generous and compassionate man.

He was too "cheap" to regrip his golf clubs, a game he was passionate about, but would give you the shirt off his back and all the money in his pocket if he saw you were in need. He lived to give to those around him.

He was devoted to his wife and family in a way that you just don't see much anymore, they meant everything to him. He did everything in his power to provide for and protect them. He was fiercely loyal and expected the same in return.

To me, Jim was a boss, a mentor, and more importantly a very dear friend. I am better for having known and spent time with him, and he will be truly missed.
