I still remember our first meeting back in spring 2000. We met in his office in LAW Engineering (Kennesaw, GA)- it was a job interview to join LAW. I found out he was the adviser of my adviser Dr. Aral at Georgia Tech, when Dr. Aral was doing his graduate studies. I joined LAW Engineering and we became friends since that interview. I often joke with him when he brings to my attention some points I miss in my work, I say Dr. Wallace, take it easy on me, I went to my first grade when you finished your PhD from MIT. He became my best reference throughout my career.

We had a great friendship, we shared a lot of respect for each other's faith, pour common ground for love for goodness and for the well-being humanity.

After I left LAW (MACTECH) in 2005 we stayed in touch, over the years. Our last meeting was in late 2014 when he invited me for lunch. At that time, I just return from my original home Libya - after I spent 2 years over there. He made great effort to help me. Within 3 weeks from that lunch I got a job with Montana Bureau of Mines and Geology, he was glad to be my reference, and certainly was very happy after I told him that I was hired.

We always exchanged e-mails during Christmas and Easter. Last Easter, Jim did not reply to my e-mail. I was worried and I knew he is not feeling well, otherwise he will never miss returning a message.

My deep condolences to Helen and his family. Definitely I will miss Jim, my adviser, my mentor, and my friend. May the Lord bless his soul and grant him paradise.

Jim was a great friend, mentor, and outstanding human being. His GT family will miss him.

While I never worked with Jim (we worked with competing firms), I got to know him as a member of the Atlanta engineering community. He was respected by everyone who knew him and had the opportunity to work with him. In addition to being a technical leader in the field, he consistently worked in our professional organizations to support their mission and strengthen the profession.
As a Professor of Practice in the Environmental Engineering program at Georgia Tech, the Institute was honored to have him as an alumnus and honored to have him as a professor of civil engineering early in his career.

Jim was a great encouragement to me as a young engineer when I lived in Atlanta. Peace and comfort to your family.
