Not sure what to say?

Very sad news. Jim was a gentleman.

I owe so much to so many for my professional development over the years, but to Jim I owe the greatest debt of all. He instructed me, then he trusted me, and then he trusted me some more. But for Jim Gillman, I shudder to think where I might be today. And thanks, too, for all the great memories!

Jim was a great guy. I enjoyed working for him. He was truly a giant in intellectual property strategy.

I remember him as a high integrity patent negotiator in many meetings with him in Japan. I consider it an honor to have been in his patent department.
