We'll all miss Jimmy. Growing up in NJ, we always enjoyed getting together with our many cousins. Jim was always calm and caring, and willing to spend time talking with me even though I was younger by about 8 years. We're thankful for our getting together with Jim and Kathy at a family reunion in NJ, just after Jim retired. He'll be missed. And we'll be praying for comfort for Kathy, their children, and all our cousins. God bless you, Jim!

Jim and I worked together at Safe Kids of ABE. Jim was adamant that his Safe Kids Coalition would be the only one in Pennsylvania to address the greatest accidental risk to the very young- drowning. As an aquatic professional, he welcomed me to the coalition and was instrumental in getting our Family Water Safety Day at Cedar Beach off the ground and succeeding for 18 years to teach kids and families about how to be safer in the water. Jim and I attended many Safe Kids meetings and events. He was so passionate about keeping kids as safe as they could be: in the car, in their house, on the playground, in school and in the water. Jim was truly one of the biggest advocates for kids that I have ever met. He will be missed. Rest in Peace Jim. Penny Pantano

Dear Kathy, Brad, and extended family, We are so sorry to hear of Jim´s passing. He was a good friend, always had a smile on his face, and never said anything bad about anyone. We will miss the grilling he did doing your picnics when it was always So hot. We admired him for his trust in God, strength and the positive attitude he had during this past difficult year. We´re sure he´s smiling down at you. May your faith and all the wonderful memories you have of him give you peace. We will miss our friend.
