We are sorry to hear of Jim's passing. We only knew him briefly when our son Daniel Burnham dated Jim's granddaughter Maddie. Jim was kind to Daniel and employed him for a summer. Jim and Jan welcomed us to their home for a family get together and it was clear how much he loved his children and grandchildren. Our sympathy goes out to Jan and the rest of the family.
