I was very lucky I got to work with Jim. He was always in early and no matter how stressful the situation was, he was always calm and collective. He was always so nice to me and helpful.

I had the privilege in working with Jim at Southwest Airlines for many years. Jim was an amazing Field Technician that was always working around the clock. He set the tone for productivity and getting things done for the entire team. He definitely left an impression with me and I will cherish the memories of us working station projects together as well as just seeing him early in morning drinking coffee to start his day.

Jim – “Rest in Peace” my friend.

I'm so sorry for your loss! I had the pleasure of working with Jim for years, even got to spend a week with him when we worked on getting Tampa opened up. Lots of times he would work through lunch and then when it was time to quit and go to dinner, we had to grab him by the arm and make him come with us. As long as he had his cigarettes with him, I believe he would have worked until midnight. He loved his job and he was so good at it!

I hope these words are comforting to his Family: His death may have been unexpected by you, but it was long awaited for by Jesus.
