Jim was a standout Soccer and Track star both in High School and College.
Later in life he became an outstanding triathlete. The year he was diagnosed with lung cancer at the age of 45, he competed in the Penn Relays. He never smoked.

Jim passed six years ago on this very day, April 20th. Had he not lost his battle with lung cancer, he would now be riding with his beloved wife Margaret, son Jimmy and daughters Greta and Josie whom he coached and trained, cheering on Isabella during her amazing and courageous journey. He was loved by all and is deeply missed.
