We were very sorry to hear of Jim's passing. We have known his wife Rita for many years, as she was a very good friend of my sister Helene Zeller McIntyre. We met Jim several times and always enjoyed his humor and views of life. Our deepest sympathies to Rita, his family and his children. May a good man rest in eternal peace.

JJ had outstanding character and integrity. I was lucky to have him as a friend.

He was an excellent USAF pilot and officer. I had the opportunity to fly with him throughout the world on several occasions.

He was always a gentleman and had a great sense of humor. He often spoke of his family and loved his boys very much.

May he rest in peace.
