As a young woman in '69 I was living
communily and thank goodness I was. One of the people there knew the Zeras family well enough to be invited, along with the rest of us, to their farm. I took away with me the knowledge that family is most important and always loving. All of us roamed the farm singley and in ever changing groups. Except Jim who was in his studio working who put in occational appearances. I remember the warmeth of the sun and the company, nature's colors along side family creations, eating fresh honey most of which I wound up wearing. At dusk a fire was built and we stared at the wonder of the stars.
Thak yo for that time and all it has meant to me over the years. We will all miss Jim and I extent my deepest sympathy to you Jacquelin and your family.

It is hard to put into a few words all of the things that Jim taught me, but the most important ones are not even about architecture. I never heard him complain, say something negative about another person, or raise his voice. He always had time for anyone who knocked on his door, and he was infinitely patient. I only now realize how lucky I was to work with him for nearly 20 years. The office will always feel a little empty now.

For the past 25 years Jim has been my business partner and mentor. Jim taught me the importance of community involvement and activism. He led by example, as evidenced by his legacy with the Mount Baker Theatre, Whatcom County Parks and R/UDAT. He has been an inspiration and will be greatly missed.

I was so fortunate to have worked for Jim. Although, it was just three short years, he had quite an impact on my life. He will be greatly missed...but with very fond memories.

I first met Jim through my father Marvin Southcott, also a designer. In the 1970's I knew him as the father of Dominique, Dawn, Claude and Chris...not having met the other siblings at the time. In the 1980's his work with the Mt Baker Theatre was crucial to its success, I remember him distinctly as he graciously greeted supporters at the Theatre. When with TransformerCAD we filmed a CAE/CADD video for the Synthesis software product in the Zervas Architect offices across from the Library, he was a friend of Hiroshi Takaki, and Claude was one of our programmers for about 2 years. He and Jacqueline appeared several years at the Muzzy's famous "Garden Party." Jim and Jaqueline's family are creative, entrepreneurial, beautiful people that enrich the world around them... a wonderful legacy. In my experience Jim was ever the calm quietly smiling man, ready to quip a quick joke, or seriousy consider a point of view. My kindest regards to his wife and children.

Jim was an excellent employer and patient mentor. I will miss his critiques and conversation greatly.

I always enjoyed his quiet wisdom. He had an interesting life in a beautiful place.

I met Jim in 1983 at the first public meeting called by the fledgling Mount Baker Theatre Committee in 1983. I joined the committee that night and have worked ever since for the vision Jim set forward that night--for a community arts center, housed in an extraordinary old building, that could be a regional performing arts and film center, and stimulate the love of the arts in this region. Subsequently, I was a member of the committee that worked with Jim in the late nineties on a new long range plan for the theatre, one that has been very influential in guiding the efforts of the Theatre's board, and continues to shape plans for the Theatre's future. I loved getting to know Jim, and talking and working with him. His loss is a huge one for this community, but his legacy will serve us and the children of the region for generations to come.
