I had Jim as my accountant for 20+ years after he worked with my late mom in the 90's. He was as honest and good hearted as they come. Clearly, he was a man of God but also a decent person in a world where many are not so decent. I still am thinking of him often and will miss him. Gone too soon...

Although I never met Jim in person, he has always impressed me as a deacon at St. John's. Because I "float" to many parishes on a Sunday, I'm well aware of the role of deacons. Without a doubt, Jim was the finest - his caring, love of his church and deep faith could be seen and felt at every service. In addition, the Cardinal O'Hara High School family is deeply saddened by his death. He was an outstanding and humble person who will be missed by all.

I had the pleasure of working with Jim for 20 years at the start of my career. He was an excellent mentor, a good friend and a good man. We shared so much laughter and fun. It made the tax seasons so much easier. My deepest sympathies to his wife, Liz and their children. I will miss him immensely.
