Send Condolence

Terry,We were very sorry to hear about Jim. Just found out. I don’t catch these things not being in the office anymore. He was a good guy and we always had nice talks when he came in to 20/20. Hope I run in to you sometime out and about. Sorry for your loss.

Terri and family – I’m sorry to learn of Jim’s passing. As a former customer of Jim’s, I had the privilege to work closely with him for many years. I considered him a true professional, a valued voice of reason when it was time to make tough decisions, a great storyteller and a good friend. He will be missed.

I'm so sorry for your loss. Jim came into my life 30 years ago when I started GENCO and I learned so much from him over those years. The one thing I always enjoyed about Jim was all the stories he shared about his family. He had so much love everyone. The memories will never be forgotten.

Terri and Family I’m sorry to hear of Jim’s passing. My success at Genco was a direct reflection of Jim’s leadership and more importantly friendship. Jim will always hold a special place in my life. I know he fought hard against cancer and may he now Rest In Peace

One of the most outstanding logistics experts I have the honor of serving with in both the military and civilian sectors!! Absolutely, the most knowledgeable individual concerning warehouse and distribution management. I have ever known. He just knew it all, and made it a point to train young people just starting out. However, most importantly, his troops at the lowest level of the organization truly respected him and knew he would always take care of them. A dear friend of Cheri and me and will be missed.

Few men I’ve respected, loved (and slightly feared). Jim was a man I’m honored to have called a friend. God’s speed...
