1957 - 2018 Obituary Condolences

It is with great sadness in our hearts that we announce a good man, Jim Emswiller, 61, of Pittsburgh, PA, passed away this past Thursday, October 11, 2018 while doing what he loved most: working on a movie set. Being a sound mixer in the film industry for over 30 years, Jim was also a dedicated Constable for the great city of Pittsburgh, an Emmy Award Winner, and an avid fisher and hunter, a collector of many things, and a soon-to-be published author. Besides his many trades, Jim was also a loving husband, an amazing "step"father, devoted son and brother, and a great friend to many. He will be greatly missed by all other communities and people he knew. Jim is survived by his wife, Beth Amber; his stepdaughter, Nikki Wallace, and her husband, David; his sister, Lauren Lega, and her husband, Mark; two nephews, Ryan and Austin; and his father, James; he was preceded in death by his mother, Lorraine Vincent. Visitation will be held on Sunday, October 14, 2018, from 6 to 9 p.m., and Monday October 15, 2018, from 2 to 4 p.m. and 6 to 8 p.m., at the JEFFERSON MEMORIAL FUNERAL HOME, INC., 301 Curry Hollow Rd., Pleasant Hills, 15236. A Memorial Service will be held Tuesday, October 16, 2018 at 10 a.m. in the funeral home's chapel. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Pittsburgh Film Office.
