Jim will be missed! Our Aruba beach time will not be the same without you. You have always been a fun person to share our time on the beach, be it playing horseshoes, enjoying happy hour, or a beautiful sunset. We will raise a toast to your memory, you will not be forgotten!

Thank you Jim for the memories.

Jim was a wonderful person just loved golfing and spending time after golf with him.

He was always fun to be with, always a positive attitude and never complained about anything.

Thank you for being my friend I will never forget you.

Jim taught me so much. Not only about sales but also how to be a man of character and Integrity. These are traits I will carry in his legacy.

Thank you Jim. You have left an indelible impression, and helped me become who I am today, both personally and professionally. I thank you for that and so much more.

Jim was a dear friend and my treasured mentor. I'm not sure how to carry on with the hole he's left in my life but I will do everything I can to make him proud. He meant so much to so many of his work family and he is truly irreplaceable. Love you, Boss. We'll cover it from here.
