I worked at Barnes and Noble cafe when I was in college and met Jim, while I worked there. Even though I did not know him well, I admired the family man he was. He was a proud dad, often with his younger children at the store. He spoke of his older children fondly as well. Many years later when I stopped into the Starbucks in Springfield, I remember seeing him and he remembered me.

My condolences to all of his family and loved ones.
