Jim speaking at the Mineta Transportation Institute board meeting, January 2012

We still miss you, Jim. Our Mineta Transportation Institute board meetings aren't the same without your sage advice and loquacious insights. You were loved and admired.

My condolences go to family and friends of The Honorable James L. Oberstar. I had the honor to meet Chairman/ Representative Oberstar in an April 3, 2008, House Hearing on FAA Abuses in Voluntary Disclosure Programs. He was a prince of a person. I invited him to sit by my "campfire" any time, to which he said, "he would." He is remembered.

RIP Honorable James L. Oberstar; thank you for your wisdom and leadership.

I am very sorry for your loss. Please find comfort in knowing that God knows how you feel and he wants you to throw your burden on him because he cares for you.

My thoughts and prayers go out to his wife and family. I knew him to be such a wonderful man.
