Dear Molly:
My wife Ayxsa and I were greatly saddened to hear of Jim's passing. Jim and I along with our fellow workers at EAF witnessed a great deal of history in corporate aviation. Jim was a major factor in contributing to it's growth in a very positive way.
Our deepest sympathies to you and your son's. He left us much too soon.

My condolences to all of Jim's family. Jim had the personality and character to be a great and inspiring leader in whatever position & company he was affiliated with. He will be greatly missed and remembered as a kind and gracious man.

Dear Molly and sons,
Those of us who knew and worked with Jim are all saddened over the loss.
I am personally glad that I had a few minutes to speak with you and both of the
Christiansen sons. As a parent of a police officer I see this line of work from different perspectives, with a higher appreciation of what they do. In recent year encounters, Jim and I would exchange stories about our sons. We are fortunate to have known Jim and will remember how much he loved his family and how much he enjoyed being a steward to the needs of others.
