Margaret and Kathleen,

Jim was a force of change, in the lives of many. He had a way of encouraging thousands of students to achieve excellence as Citizen’s of the World. Jim’s heart burst through his seemingly tough exterior in loving ways. In fact, his unique humor kept me grounded on many occasions. Jim was and will forever be the ethical role model, in the lives of several generations. How fortunate are we to know and celebrate the life of James “Jim” Bobbitt. All my love to Margaret and family❤❤❤❤

Thoughts and Prayers for Jim’s family and friends. I knew Jim from many years ago. He was such a nice guy with a great sense of humor. Rest In Peace Jim.
