  When we were both at Jordan, we had the opportunity of taking a bus trip around the US with about thirty other students.  it was a blast.  After this website went up, we reconnected and Jim always would send me an email for my birthday.  I always thought that I would look him up whenever I visited Spain again.  My thoughts and prayers go out to his wife and extended family.

   Jim, you will be missed!

Jim was sharp, clever, and gentle.   He could show a sardonic wit, but never meanly and he never took himself too seriously (unlike many of us).  In Mrs. Hamilton's 10th grade English class we were burdened with reading Melville's "short" story "Bartleby the Scrivener".   The end of this seemingly endless story is "Ah, Bartleby!   Ah, humanity!"  The next day, discussing the story, Jim stated that he felt like saying "'Ah, Bartleby.  Ah, humanity.'  Ah, s---."  In the same class we were asked to write a short story and Jim composed a dark one, of a man attempting suicide by throwing himself in front of a train; Jim made it lighter, and I can still remember his reading this line: " ... klutz and bungler that he was, he failed to fall in front of the train, and so his life continued."   I remember his working on things such as puns in Latin and French.   I always enjoyed my time and conversations with him.  Rest in peace, Jim.   Thanks for our time together----John
