My deepest condolences  Barbara and Anika. I wish I was there to give you a hug. I will miss Jim, who was a vital part of our Bayer IT family. I was fortunate enough to run into him back in June at the Whippany, NJ site just by chance. I was really happy to finally see him in person again and shaking his hand and seeing his big smile made my day. The first time I met Jim was when he worked within the Crop Science division architecting complex data structures and turning them into amazing insights for everyone.  He had a gift for understanding technology, data, life and the world in general. Innovative, insightful, kind, wise, a true friend, humorous and intelligent are qualities that I will remember about Jim. His  contributions at Bayer will continue to be around for our benefit, so he is immortal in that way.  He often spoke fondly of both of you and his dogs, which barked often on our calls :-).  My only regret is I did not have an opportunity to go to his favorite little Chinese restaurant in his town and enjoy the dumplings with him. I will truly miss you Jim and unfortunately will not be there to bid you farewell.  Much love from your Can-American friend and colleague from afar.  Dave Shum, Berkeley, CA / Toronto, Canada

I am shocked to hear Jim passed away. I always loved to discuss with him about anything, from gastronomy to technology. I had the chance to meet Jim for a project and we remained in contact. I really loved his sense of humour, intelligence and his polite way to criticize the decisions that were made in our company. He was always very kim and curious about anything and anyone. 

I will really miss you Jim. 

My deepest condoleances to Barbara and Anika. I know for sure he loved you very much as he was always talking about you and will watch you from there.

Our memories of Jim, hardworking both on & off the water.  In the classroom & on campus, Jim was mature beyond his years, because Jim knew his priorities, he was there to study hard, get great grades, and never missing a practice.  We knew Jim would be successful no matter what he set his mind too,  because he was so darn focused. 

Our deepest condolences to his family & friends .. we missed you at the recent reunion, and we're still in shock by the sad news of your recent passing. RIP ..

I was shocked and saddened when I heard the news of James's passing. I have always enjoyed the conversations that I had with him. I wish you the best while you go through the healing process.
I am so very sorry for you loss. There are still no words. Although it's such a big world, it's a small world. I happen to be in the same Notre Dame Executive class as Jim in 2009. Who would have thought, I would still be working with Jim in 2022. <3 He was such a unique and special person. He had so much knowledge about so many topics, and loved to just talk to people. He was kind and had a huge heart. He was thoughtful and always willing to help others. He has left a hole in our organization, that cannot be filled, and will be greatly missed <3

Family Vacation in Hawaii 2012
Family Vacation in Hawaii 2012
Jim and I met at a graduation party  when we were about 18 years old.  There was a piano at that house, and we both found ourselves playing ragtime music together.  If you remember back in the 70s, that was when the movie "The Entertainer" came out.   It was that movie that had inspired both of us to start learning to play ragtime.  We both played many ragtime tunes and this one, The Maple Leaf Rag was one of our favorites.     
It took Jim two years to master this beautiful piano piece.   He often played it for me and played it every bit as beautifully.  It's called "Un Sospiro" by Franz List.     We had so many fun and lovely times playing the piano together.  He truly was my soul-mate and I am so grateful for the 42+ plus years we had together.    (He also played many other pieces on the piano, as I did too, but I won't mention them all.  We sure loved our Steinway piano which we purchased as our 20th anniversary gift.)
