  • I’ve had a lot of respect for Jim. I loved that he was straight forward with you, but inside was a huge heart. There were a few times at work that I needed to go talk to him. He always took the time for me, talked about my concerns, and I always felt better after. I remember thanking him once after we talked, and he told me, “That’s my job.” But, I told him, “Maybe. But, not everyone does their job.” It was so much more than just, “doing his job.” He may not have come right out and said it, but he really cared for the people he worked with. I’ll definitely miss the guy.

  • I had the privilege of getting to know Jim while working together over the past decade. Jim led his team to positive results and he was well respected and liked by his employees. Not all of Jim & I’s conversations were about work, however. I grew up in an avid hunting and fishing family and so we often shared stories of past outdoor adventures. Jim kept me up-to-date on his newest favorite fishing hole or where he was heading off to next on a hunting trip.

    Jim will certainly be missed by many. My wish is that he finally finds that perfect fishing spot and catch the one that got away.

    Rest in peace my friend.

    Jim i will you miss you Man
    May Glod bless your soul in piece forgive your sins

  • I had the honor of knowing Jim for 2o plus years. His infectious smile and personality is a trait that very few people have. I know Jim wants us all to be happy and not sappy and sad. I will miss the hunting trips, the dart games, poker and most of all the phone calls and post on Facebook when Krispy Kreme would put out a new flavor and he would joke and bust my balls. I will miss having that friend I could always count on. I will miss our trips to Chai Tai with Palson and Ania. I will miss fighting over who is paying for the Fun Dip shots!!! But most of all I will miss my brother from another mother. I Love you Jim…..Gone but never will be forgotten.

  • Jim was my boss for couple years at BMW which was RICHO and he was very caring about what you needed and always had a plan to make things better on the job. I also made him laugh a lot at work me and some of the other coworkers. He will be missed alot God has him now no more pain. Love Debbie Smith

  • I am so sorry for your loss. I really enjoyed having Jim as my boss. He was accommodating and kind. I will miss him.

  • My deepest condolences to Jim’s family and closest friends. I will always remember Jim for his concern for others even when he himself was struggling with his health. I will miss how you would be working and the next thing you know he’s standing there looking over your cubicle watching you work. The best thing I will remember him for is having our back as his employees. He will be dearly missed by all.

  • My sweet cousin we had a lot of good times when we were young on the farm. I hate that you went through what you did, but I’m so grateful you had such dear friends in you adult life. You will be missed and now you are healed and with our family and friends who’ve gone before us. God speed cuz until we meet again

  • Jim was my boss for almost 5 yrs. And he was truly one of the best I’ve ever had. He gave me the opportunity to do a job I had never done before. He had more faith in me, than I did in myself at the time. And boy was he a jokster, and a sense of humor that sometimes he hid very well. If he knew he could joke around with you, you were in for it. How I’ll miss hearing- Everybody have a good weekend, except for Michele
