To all of the friends and family of Jim, my condolences are with you. Jim was a very knowledgeable man and will not be forgoten. I had the honor on several ocassions to have been a student in several of his classes taught at several area fire departments. Though Jim has passes on to a better life, his knowledge will live on through the students that he taught. May god be with you Jim and may his memories be with us. God bless the family.
