I only knew Jim while attending the University of San Francisco, then unfortunately lost track of him. But I have one vivid memory of him I'd like to share.

In 1972, we both took a class in John Collins's Method Acting techniques. One day, John led us in an exercise on stage to put us in touch with both the space we occupied and the space around us. With our eyes closed, we were to move no, float about the stage. We were to create no, mold the space we passed through.

Feel the space around you, John urged us. Float and mold your space, float and mold, he said as a mantra.

I went along. I began to like the freedom of movement among my usually self-conscious peers. But I was not to float and mold for long. Just as I floated to my left, another student, Jim, molded his elbow to the right and connected squarely with the side of my nose. Crunch. I began bleeding profusely. Jim opened his eyes, and turned around to see me holding my nose.

I'm so sorry, he said, eyes wide in surprise and concern. Are you OK? Can I get some towels?

By now, everyone looked around for what had happened. I was too stunned to say anything. I ran out of the theater and down the hall to the bathroom. I used to get nosebleeds regularly as a child, but the 10 minutes it took to get this one under control seemed an eternity. For this one, I had to stuff the nostril with tissue. I returned to the theater with my "nose stuffing," feeling 18-year-old embarrassed. Jim looked sad and helpless. I had to reassure the whole class I'd be OK, which I was.

Jim was so sweet and caring that day, traits I suspect continued throughout his life. My condolences to his family and friends. I'm remembering him fondly.

So Sad! Jim was a great cop and friend at Novato Police Department! Jim is playing the drums now in heaven! Dan Gallagher
