Ken, our deepest sympathies to you and all of your family. Thoughts and prayers are with each of you.

Jim and I met when he was a player for the Indianapolis Ice in 1990. He was the ultimate team player and one of the truly good guys on and off the ice. Humble, smart, competitive and always ready with a quick one-liner followed by a short giggle. Hockey lost a great leader and manager; we all lost a great person. Rest in peace, old friend.

Very saddened to hear of Jim's passing. I have fond memories of him as the rink rat he was, zipping around the outdoor rinks of Rochester. My sincerest condolences to the entire Johannson family.
