Teresa and family, my thoughts and prayers are with you. I first knew of Jim through his parents, Joe and Dorothy. We later both worked together at Westin Hotels and Resorts. I remember him as a true professional and a fine man.

To all the Mogush family:
Jim and I first met in 1967 when we worked together at tThe Olympic Hotel in Seattle. We became fast friends, and I was warmly welcomed into the famiy by Joe and Dorothy. Jim had a warm contagious laugh, and a great sense of playfulness. So many good memories. May God keep you in his arms, my friend.
