Jim is a great guy. I say is because he lives on inside all of us who knew him and whose lives he had an impact on. Back in the early days while I was still young in my career with PSI, Jim chose to mentor and teach me when I was still learning so much. For this I will be forever grateful and forever will his memory live on.

It is with great sadness that I receive the news.
I am a former coworker when I lived in the US and not only had a great time with him, but also learned a lot.
Rest in peace, Jimmy.

I first met Jim in July of 1997 when PSI acquired GMTI. Jim was a friend and a colleague. Jim's knowledge of the local geology was second to none. Jim helped me on hundreds of difficult projects and had mentored many engineers and technicians along the way. Years later he joined us at GSI where he was working for the past 7 years. Jim was an excellent professional and a better human being, respected for his knowledge and more so for his enthusiasm and caring demeanor. Jim was loved and admired by his clients, friends and colleagues. Jim left a lasting impression on all of us and we are better because of him. You will be missed. Rest in peace Jim.

I met Jim in summer of 1992 when he was with GMTI. My company became his primary drilling contractor on hundreds of subsurface investigations throughout the metro DC area and beyond. Jim was an enthusiastic geologist and could get quite excited doing the research and analysis required for a complex geotechnical investigation. His passion and enthusiasm was infectious and educational at even the most basic level, so we drillers could better understand the environment we were working in. Farewell to a true friend who was willing to share his expertise and knowledge to make the geotechnical world better everyday.

I first started my engineering career at PSI after college in the summer of 2013. While Jim was not my supervisor, he was always eager to take me under his wing and to educate and help me in grow into a capable and independent engineer and person. As many who have worked with Jim can testify to, Jim was always incredibly busy, which is not only a testament to his talents as an engineer but also an reflection of what a great person Jim was as coworkers and clients were always eager to work with him. However, no matter how busy Jim was, he always made time for me and a lot of the other younger engineers. I remember fondly those Friday evenings he and I would share a beer after work, unwind, and talk not only about work but as well as Hokies and Redskins football.

I owe Jim a lot regarding my career and getting me down the right path as an engineer. I am truly sad to hear of his passing and my deepest condolences to his family. God speed Jim and enjoy those beers on the other side!

Jim was a friend and a colleague. When I came to PSI 20 years ago, Jim was already here. He was the memory bank. He knew every project, every client, every locale, every geology and its implications. In addition to having these gifts and being ever diligent, he had a big heart and was always ready to share a laugh.

Through the ups and downs of business life, Jim was a positive steady influence and a warm personal friend. I watched him mentor young engineers and saw the way they benefited from his meticulous, organized approach to his working life. When he left PSI, I felt a keen sense of loss and now that loss is complete. My life was enriched by knowing Jim. Go with God, my friend.
