Dear Members of the Ciotti Family,

It was my pleasure to know Jim for many years as a friend, mentor and colleague in the Biolabs. He was his own unique blend of caring, frankness and just plain fun. I had the good fortune to spend a fair bit of time with Jim about work issues, but also doing a lot of schmoozing with him over breakfast and a few times, playing hooky with him. He had many different facets and interests in his life, but it was always very clear that family came...


All of us at Harvard HR are here for you during this incredibly difficult time. We know how much you loved your Dad and what a wonderful man he was. The next few days will be difficult for all of you as you say goodbye to this pivotal person in your lives. You are all in our thoughts & prayers.

Jim was one in a million.Good guy lot,s
of fun.

Valerie, you are in my thoughts and prayers. I know how much you loved, respected and admired your Dad. You were a blessing to him and absolutely the best daughter. Wishing you peace and love.

I had the pleasure of working with Jim during his time at Harvard and can honestly say that I would not have the career that I have now if it were not for him. He taught me so much about working at Harvard and even more about living a life filled with joy and love and family. He treated me like a son and I thought of him like a father. I am sad to hear of his passing and will remember him fondly.

So sorry to hear of Jim's passing. I worked for Jim for many years in the Biological Labs Finance Office. He was a fine man with a terrific sense of humor. Again, I'm very sorry for your loss.
