    Jim hired me at the state 31 years ago and as long as I work with him he was not just a co worker he was family. Gay family I want you all to know how much Jim meant to a lot of us at DIS we loved him so much and hate that we didn’t talk to often after he retired. I will keep you all in my thoughts and prayers.

    I got to know Jim at the NASTD conferences. He was a true professional and a caring human being. We will miss him.
