I was a coworker of Jim's at the Cyber Centre and really enjoyed working with him over the last few years, he will be truly missed. My most sincere and deepest condolences to his family.
One of the best managers I have ever had. I will miss him.
It’s moments like these that words fall short. I have known Jim for 3 years. He is a gracious man. He’s laugh is the most I remember when I think of him. My deep condolences to his family, relatives, and close friends.
My deepest condolences to Jim's family and friends for your loss. Jim will be missed here at the Cyber Centre for his dedication and professionalism, carried over from his military career, which earned him the respect of all.
Jim, you will be missed greatly. I regret that I didn't have the chance to work with you longer. You brought passion and knowledge to your job and were always happy to help others learn what we did not know. I am both sad and angry that you were taken from this world too early. To your family I wish all the strength in the world in this hard time. If you helped them half as well as you helped us I am sure that they will be able to carry on.
Greatly saddened by this loss. Jim was a gracious colleague whose professional help and guidance on the job will be very missed.
I've known Jim and worked with him, on and off, for 35 years. I am just sick about this. He was robbed..... I can not imaging the pain his family is feeling - Jim was such a strong soul.
I am deeply saddened by the loss of Jim and my heart goes out to his family.
My sincere condolences to Jim's family and friends. A wonderful and thoughtful colleague always willing to take time out of his day to help others. His loss will be felt and he will truly be missed.
