Jim grew up and lived in Arlington, VA until he moved to Manassas in 1973. He went to East Carolina in NC until he was drafted for the Vietnam War. Upon his return, after finishing up at George Mason, Jim had a long career in the real estate industry as a commercial loan officer.

He loved the beach, “Oldies” music, history, and antiquing. He loved to travel. He was a big jokester and many times the life of the party. He was a person that would help in any way that he could.
