Jim was a first cousin. I knew as a young child. As an adult our paths seldom crossed. I offer my condolences to his immediate family and friends.

I am very sad to have to say good-bye to Jim. I enjoyed seeing him about town. Sometimes he would stop in front of my parent's house on Judson Rd. and chat. His battle cry was Mushka Mushka. We graduated together from Brookfield and I have known him as my friend all my life. Rest in peace, Jim.

I can assure you my childhood would not have been as laughter filled, and interesting without Jimmy Juice in it! The kids who grew up in the Stevenson Heights neighborhood in the 90s have some great memories because of him! Thankful his suffering is over and he can rest , whole and complete, free from pain and sickness in the arms of our Heavenly Father! 😇
