Gena and family, I was shocked to learn today of Jim’s passing. While our careers kept us busy and we moved several times, I considered Jim to be the man I most admired in life, bar none. Jim was brilliant, thoughtful, dedicated yet always grounded in his family. One highlight we shared was Game 6 of the 1980 Series, the police on horseback, Rose’s catch of the pop-up from our seats along the first base line brought. What a night and what a great guy to share it with! Gena, Kate, Adam, Ian and Je

Gena, You may not remember me but I fondly remember both you and Jimmy John. I did not know that you two married what must have been right after high school or college. I am sorry to hear about his passing but happy to know that you two had each other for so ,so many years. My deepest condolences, Regina Cucinotta Mignogna

I met Jim in Philadelphia in 1998 when our firms merged. Our paths didn't cross a lot, but, damn, I enjoyed his welcoming personality and complete professionalism. What a great guy! I pray for Jim and his family; may many wonderful memories and God's presence help you through this most difficult time. Roger

I worked with Jim at Coopers and PwC. He was always a nice guy, and a very hard worker, and expected the same from his people. He had a great smile and always seemed happy. I’m sorry for his loss at such a young age. My condolences to his wife and family and also to his sister, Peggy, with whom I graduated from West Catholic. Rest In Peace, Jimmy John!
