  • You had a smile for anyone and a ear for listening. We are going to miss you so much Mr. Wise….

  • To Jim’s family I give my deepest sympathy in the time of your lost. Jim was always there for me when I need help with the Band trailer or the US Open show. He was a good friend I will miss him, but he will always be in my heart—–Rest in peace Jim.

  • I am so sorry to hear of Jim’s passing. He was a wonderful guy and I thoroughly enjoyed working with him both on the US Open and 11 Meter. Rest in peace my friend.
