I don't recall knowing Jim when we were in high school. However, it was not too long after I began working in the DA's office that Jim established that we were in the same class at THS. I found him to be a very pleasant individual with a large sense of humor. I didn't have contact with Jim after leaving the courthouse but he was a credit to our THS class. I was sorry to hear of his passing.
