A candle has been lit!

I had the pleasure of working with Jim for about a year now and can say that he is genuinely one of the best people that I have ever had the privilege to meet in this life. In my experience, people are often so afraid to express emotion for fear of being perceived as weak or goofy. Not Jim. He never missed an opportunity to tell me and my department how important we are. He would come in dancing or with a story every time he stopped by our desks. He would even make up holidays to email us about... just ensure our week started off with a laugh. It is so rare to find people who are authentically themselves and who use their energy to make others smile. He had such a positive impact on our department. I am going to miss him so much. We are all going to miss him.

- Jenna Z Scott, Pooler, GA

Lisa, we are so saddened by your loss and are praying for you and your beautiful family. While we know God loves Jim infinitely more than we can, we mourn his loss and will miss him. God’s plans are hard for those of us left on earth to understand, but you have the body of Christ surrounding you and lifting up you and your family. Love you my sweet friend.
