A wonderful friend and teacher! I bid him, Barbara, and the family peace. Jim taught me, mentored me and inspired me. I shall miss him and hope to join him in his Heavenly Ham Shack. RIP, old friend.

To the Parson's Family.
I know this comes as no great surprise to you, but as a young ham radio operators (50 years ago), Jim was our inspiration. He was someone we looked up to and someone who ALWAYS had time for us kids. We learned so much about the hobby, about electronics, about fun and about life from K5ROV.
We are the Hams we are today because Jassonne Parsonne set a high standard for us and held us accountable.
Jim, we will miss you - your laugh - your incredible knowledge - and now, your silent key!
