I didnt know Jim that well but he was referred to me by many on here and was one of the first TT's I had the pleasure of dealing with. He was happy to help a newbie and I am grateful I got to deal with him if only over the phone. Sad to hear this and know his loss is felt by all of us.

Thanks to all who have posted on team talk. I am Jim's wife of 28 years - Mary Jane. I just found these e-mails and they are touching and wonderful. Jim loved waterskiing and talking to all of you on this site. Thanks again for your support - Love, Mary Jane

Mary Jane my heart goes out to you and the boys. I hope I have the pleasure of meeting you when I finally get to your area and catch up with a few old friends that are mutual friends.

Mary Jane, I am just up in Orlando - I wish I could get down to BAWS. I lost my dad in Feb. He had a place in Seminole. My thoughts go out to you and your family and friends.

Mary Jane my prayers are with you and your family. Sorry for your loss, but know this “You can easily judge the character of a man by how he treats those who can do nothing for him.” Jim has helped out and treated many, many, people on this forum that could do nothing for him and he asked nothing in return. Jim was a stand up guy and did right by people. This world could use and learn from others like him. I've never met him personally, but over the years I've learned a lot from. He will be missed. God Bless you and yours.
