I too was heartsick to learn of Jim's passing. We knew each other for close to 20 years. Jim was one of the people I most respected and admired in the labor movement. He always had something positive to add to any discussion. He was a good man and he will be missed.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Jim's family. Jim was a good man and a hard worker who loved to spend time in Cincinnati every chance he could. He would always comment on the Cincinnati skyline and the restaurant scene that he never got to experience growing up in Terre Haute. Rest in peace brother, your work on earth is through and Thank you for your friendship.
