James Timothy Mullen

August 14, 1957 - December 27, 2016

James Timothy Mullen ("Jimbo") passed away on December 27, 2016. A lifelong resident of South San Francisco, Jim was a loving and devoted son, brother, uncle, cousin, father, grandfather, and friend.
Jim's love of life never wavered, and he lived it to the fullest. If he entered a room of strangers they were merely "friends I haven't formally met yet." His wit and humor were legend, his love of the Giants well known, and his wonderful singing voice a gift he shared with everyone.
Jim is survived by his parents, James and Norma Mullen, sister Laura Zupko (Bill), brother Michael Mullen (Meagean), son Chip Studley (Sara), nephews Patrick and Elijah, grandchildren Emerson and Kaylin, and his many cousins, uncles, aunts, and friends.
Born on August 14, 1957, Jim graduated from South San Francisco High School (Class of 1975). Never shy, he made friends with everyone he met. On the first day of kindergarten, when all the other children were weeping, Jim was running joyfully around, catching their hands, trying to organize games and lift their spirits.
He loved to sing and once brought his aunt to tears at age 5 when he sang "When You Wish Upon a Star" to her. As an adult, his rich baritone continued to touch emotional heartstrings - and he gave Sinatra a run for his money on the karaoke stage.
He touched the lives of so many in his lifetime and will be greatly missed.
Family and friends are invited to visit on Saturday, January 7th after 9:30 AM at the Chapel of the Highlands, 194 Millwood Drive, Millbrae, CA 94030 followed by the Memorial Service starting at 11:00 AM.
