I went to school with Jim, as well as his wife Denise in Lima OH. I was actually in Denise’s class. Jim was a fine athlete, and an even better man.

It doesn’t surprise me the accolades from his friends and police family. They are well deserved.

Thank you for your service, and thank you for being a part of my life.
