Worked with Jim on several national BSA events including the 2017 National Jamboree. He was a great Scouter and friend and will be extremely missed.

Did not hear of Jim's passing until the day of the service and it was too late to attend. First met Jim when I started in Boy Scouts almost 20 years ago. He never failed to speak and extend his hand wherever I saw him. Loved his down-to-earth attitude in which he approached everything and everybody liked him. He was a rare find in today's world. May God hold you in his loving embrace as you grieve the lost of a fine man.
