    I worked with Jim at Visteon. I was his Union Shop Steward and later President of IUE/CWA Local 907. Jim was a nice person and will be sadly missed. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family.

    To all the family, Jim and I want to tell you how sorry we are about Jimmie. Mom, I know you never think you will lose a child, and kids, you certainly don't expect this at your/his ages. We're praying for all of you.
