    I am so sorry to hear of Jim’s passing. He and I worked together at Boeing for over 30 years. Jim was one of the first people that I met when I started working at Boeing. He was a colleague, a lifelong friend and councilor. May you rest in peace. I offer my sincere condolences to his wife, children and family.

    Very sorry to hear of Jim’s passing. He will be missed. He was an institution at Boeing – in external loads and product development – we used to joke about writing a book about The Boeing Company post 747/757. He was part of a scholarly group of a senior engineering/product development colleagues. He was good faithful man who loved his family more than anything. May you rest in peace old friend. My sincere condolences to his wife, children and family.
