ELLIOTT--James Gerard,

of Boynton Beach, FL and Forest Hills, NY on August 8th - just six days before his 69th birthday. Loving husband of Min (Wang), father of Christopher, Tara, and Jason, stepfather of Richard Li, proud grandparent of Frank and Emilia, father-in-law of Megan (Connors), brother of John C., Brendan, T.J., and Irene Elliott. Jim was predeceased by his parents, John T. and Mary Angela (Connaghan), and brother Michael. A graduate of Bergen Catholic High School and Manhattan College, with an MBA from NYU's Stern College of Business, Jim was for ten years Vice President, Risk & Insurance Management at Morgan Stanley and held many other executive titles during his 40 year financial services industry career. An automotive enthusiast for all of his life, Jim designed unique cars and established racing records. Faithful son, devoted spouse, caring father, loyal brother, persevering friend: we will miss Jim always. To honor Jim, gifts to the Br.
