R.I.P James God rest your soul.
Had James in mind today and wanted to let the family know my prayers are still out with them. James will forever be missed in our hearts and made a huge impact on my life.
My thoughts and prayers go to the whole family at this time of loss. Will pray that GOD will give you peace and comfort at this time. Remember you have many old friends who care for you. GOD Bless you and keep his mighty hand around you.
Our thoughts, prayers and condolences go to the Wilson family. I have known James' father, Norm, since I was born and raised with him. I just can't possibly comprehend the grief this family is dealing with. The entire Wilson family will be in our unceasing prayers for comfort and God's Grace and Mercy. May God Bless this family during this extremely tough time.
I did not know your son but as an MASD parent, my deepest sympathy and thoughts are with you. May your beautiful memories sustain you during the difficult times ahead. God Bless you and your family during this very sad time.
I cannot imagine your family's grief for this tragic loss. My son is an active member in the Red Land High School marching band, plays the alto saxophone, is in the jazz band and is a lover of music, as I'm sure was James. I am so heartfully sorry for the loss of such a beautiful boy. Please, please remember all the good things that he was and know that if you didn't hurt so much, you wouldn't have loved so much... my heart and love go out to all of you.
The Faith Family of Saint Joseph Catholic Church in Mechanicsburg offers you Dr. Norman, Tarja, Christopher and David the assurance of our love, support and prayers at this challenging and difficult time! May James now bask in the joy and light of the Eternal Kingdom, prepared for him from the foundation of the world! May the thought of knowing that others share in your pain and sorrow, bring you an abundance of comfort and consolation!
Blessings, Father Ogden, Pastor

James you will never be forgotten. Jamie and Sean played soccer with James on Rec. Soccer Team. That year their father Raymond coached and mother was present at every game and practice. James was a very sweet and social player that added a sense of humor and joy to the entire team. Our heartfelt sympathy goes out to you and your family at this very difficult time.

We are so sorry for your loss. Our heartfelt sympathy to the family and friends of James. Only time is the healer. You are in our prayers and thoughts.
The thoughts and prayers of the Shupp-Goebl family are with you. We are heartbroken for you.
I've witnessed teachers sobbing this week. If that doesn't pull your heartstrings, I don't know what will. James, your voice, presence and goofiness will never be replaced. I will miss seeing you in the band hallway in the morning. I will never forget you. God bless.
Our family would like to let you know our thoughts and prayers are with you. While Chris and Drew played soccer together all those years, and Drew was in the concert band with James, we never really got to know James, but wish we had. We hope the wonderful memories your family shares about James will help you through this time of grief.
My heartfelt sympathy to the Family and Friends of James. I am so sorry for the tragic, unspeakable loss of your precious son, brother and friend. May it be some small comfort to know you are in the thoughts and prayers of many, and in time may your memories bring you comfort. Wishing you peace...

As parents of a senior trombone player from Dover high. school who is also in districts and regionals...we have been at festivals that James has been a part of. District jazz this year is at Mechanicsburg High School and it will be a very sad time. There are no words for the family and friends, we cannot imagine what you are going through right now. Just know that you are in our prayers.
Darin, Marianne, and Cody Seibert
Our deepest sympathies to you and your family and to James' mamy friends. He was a blessing to our MASH community and touched many lives. Remember the good memories during those tough times to come that will hopefully soften the pain being felt. May God wrap his loving and comforting arms around you now and give you peace.
Our deepest sympathies... Smith and Kirk family
Our daughter was in guard with James. Although she remembers James well, I only met him at the practices & concession stand. We have no words to console your family. Our family also lost a young girl in her teens 20 years ago. I think this year`s competion will be in James honor. Anything you need please call. God will be with you.
Katie Hassinger & family
My heart goes out to family and friends of this beautiful young man. Gone from this world much too soon. May you be comforted through your memories of James. Thoughts and prayers to family and friends at this time of sorrow.
REST IN PEACE JAMES ~ MAY GOD BLESS YOUR ENTIRE FAMILY DURING THIS TIME OF SORROW
We're all going to miss you James. Keep cracking jokes, wherever you are.
you touched so many lives in your wonderful years here on earth- students, teachers, community members. everyone is better for knowing you. knowing your spirit, your talents, your gift of being YOU! how lucky Mechanicsburg was to have you here to call home. there must have been need for a trombone in a great brass ensemble in heaven, and as sad as we are you have been called home, the heavens are rejoicing with your music and personality. God Speed James.
My heart goes out to you in this very difficult time. The love of your son will live on in your heart forever.
It is with my heavy heart that I would like to share this message with the class of 2013. James grew up to be a wonderful, caring and loved young man! During this most tragic and sad time we need to remember all the beautiful memories and cherish those memories to help with the healing process of losing our friend, classmate, brother, and beautiful son. I hold a very special place in my heart for the class of 2013 going back 9 years ago at Upper Allen. I especially remember the time James came to me and said, Mrs. Buggy don't forget to wear your high heels when we play kickball! Oh boy did we have fun!!! It is those beautiful memories that everyone must hold on to to help ease all of our pain. James was loved and will be forever remembered at MASH and in the Mechanicsburg community and he would want all of his friends and classmates to come together and continue to reach for the stars!! May the lord bless the Wilson family during this very sorrowful time.
Jack, Denise, Kaylee and Emily Buggy
I am so so sorry for your loss. My prayers are with you and your family during this time.
As a former MASH student and Messiah grad my heart goes out to the family and friends of this amazing young man. I lost my brother at a similar age and he too was a shining member of the MASH band and a son of a Messiah professor...may God's presence and peace guide you through these difficult days and in the days to come

As an alumn of MASH and Messiah College my heart goes out to this family, having experienced the loss of my brother at this age... also a MASH student who loved his band and his school. Prayers to the family and students who loved him and whose hearts will forever miss him
No words can express the feelings that are going through the minds of the many who knew James, let alone yours. James was truly an amazing person and I am very thankful to have been close to him the past 4 years. I give you my deepest condolences.
I knew James from the County and District festivals. He always stood out to me as one of the most positive, fun-loving people in the band. His smile always made people smile in response. He will be greatly missed by everyone who knew him. I am praying that God will help you through this difficult time, and I am praying for James too.
I love you man, I will never forget the great times we've had. It was a blessing getting to know you over the years. rest easy

I am so glad to have become friends with you over the years...you are such an amazing person - always full of life and ways to make others happy. It's so hard to believe that I won't see your smiling face in school anymore, but you will always be in the hearts of everyone who knew you. Rest in peace, James.

By looking at you I can see that you got down with the get down. I can see you strutting into heaven with a trombone in your hand. You now have the largest crowd to play for. Show them what you are working with. God Bless You and Your family.

We pray that you will find some comfort through your faith, through the love and support of family and friends as well as the treasured memories of your talented and loving son.
We always enjoyed watching James play volleyball with our sons, Frank and Rob.

Hanna and Josh remember James as being a very funny and likable guy. We are all saddened whenever a young one is taken unexpectedly, and especially so when it is 'one of ours'. No words can express the loss of a child. Our hearts and prayers are with you.
Our hearts go out to your family. You will be in our prayers.

As a marching band parent, I was truly impressed by James. He showed such spunk and spirit during the season. My prayers go out to all of the family and friends of such a wonderful young man. Take comfort in your fond memories of times shared together.
I miss you more than words can express, my brother. I was honored to know you in life, and will continue to honor and cherish your memory so you can live on. You will always be in my heart.
Although I didn't know James personally please know that I share in your grief as a fellow MASD parent and volunteer for the Marching Band. My thoughts and prayers are with you all during this time of sorrow and great loss.
My deepest sympathy for your loss. No words will ever heal the hurt your family is going through. We enjoyed watching him play volleyball with my son their Sophomore & Junior years, I know he will be gravely missed.
I don't know the family at all, but my thoughts and prayers are with you all as you mourn the loss of your beautiful, young James. Having unexpectedly lost a young person in my family not too long ago, I know the shock and pain of it. Some days are still hard. But I also know that the kindness and prayers of others really helped me and my family bear it. Therefore, I want to extend my heartfelt condolences and God's loving grace and help to the family during this difficult time. Reading about James' life, he accomplished much in his young life. I know you are most proud.
Thoughts and prayers to the family and the MASH student body and faculty.... It is such a tragedy for someone so young to leave this earth. God Bless!
Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time.
