Following graduation from college, Jim married his college sweetheart, Toni Megas Nozar, on September 21, 1968. He is a Vietnam veteran, serving his country in the Army's First Infantry Division from 1969 to 1972.
Jim and Toni have resided in Charlotte since 1976. Jim recently retired from Morgan Stanley, where he was a Financial Consultant for over 30 years.
