  1. Lindsay, Tim, Kathy, and Jayne, I am so sorry to hear of Jim’s passing. He was an amazing mentor for me as a young engineer — both for his technical expertise and his quick wit and sense of humor. I am glad to have been able to visit him in Rhode Island. One of the good guys is definitely gone.

  2. I was so deeply saddened to hear of Jim’s passing. God took another of his best and brightest. Jim possessed a brilliant mind. He accepted and defeated every challenge. Above all he was a good person.
    Blessings to you and yours Jim. You will be sorely missed by everyone of us.
