Jim was one of the pioneers and mentors of those in IR that came after him. I remember his keen sense of humor, and his willingness to share his expertise with everyone. He will be missed within the CCC's.

I am truly going to miss Jim. When you asked him one question, it always led to the most interesting and enlightening conversations. His positive outlook was contagious.
Farewell to a fellow Buffalo.

Jim's welcoming smile was always at the ready, and his enthusiasm for using good data well to better inform how we serve our students never waned. He loved our students, lived our college mission, and he will be greatly missed.

Jim was perpetually optimistic and brought out the best in all of us. He made the numbers speak in a way that we could all understand. I will miss my lunches with him.

Jim was a man of great humor, thoughtfulness, and integrity. I will very much miss our philosophical discussions and shared laughs.

American River College lost a dear friend in Jim Barr. When I was hired here some 17 years ago, Jim was part of the team of people that convinced me that this would be a good fit for me professionally. Because of him, I pressed on through the year long application/hiring process and shortly after I was chosen, Jim became a life long friend. I will truly miss the 'futurist talks' and computer one-up-man'ship game, but most importantly, I am truly going to miss my dear friend.

It is with a very heavy heart today that i say, rest in peace Jim.

Jim & I had a good ride through 10 years of research at ARC. He was a buddy in the best sense. Dick Rasor
