    I heard about Jim’s passing just this past Saturday afternoon. Too late to attend the service, but I wanted to share my thoughts and sympathy. Jim worked for me for several years at Portal Dynamics. I considered him an excellent employee but more importantly a friend. He was a gifted computer developer and built some innovative applications for the US DoD. His work helped support war fighters in the GWOT.

    As a friend, Jim was a kind and thoughtful person. He rarely had a bad day although I know he had many challenges. He had a quick laugh and could tell a good story, with an impression or two thrown in for appropriate affect. His heart was always opened up for his family and I heard daily stories about his brother’s family, when they came to stay with him for a time… especially about the kids, whom he adored. I also know he loved his wife Ami very much.

    Happily I can say that I spoke with him just about a month ago and we had a nice catch-up conversation. He told me of the new challenges he was facing but was upbeat and optimistic, He was Jimmy.

    All I can say is that he will be missed and I’m glad that our paths crossed in this life.

    To Jimmy’s family, on behalf of myself and other PD employees… please accept our sincere condolences and God Bless.

Please share your thoughts ...
