Jim completed significant overseas assignments with several US multinational companies during his career. He was no stranger to the Asian or Middle East regions as a result of his career endeavors. Jim continued to take on accounting assignments well into his 70s. He was never very far away from a calculator.
His prowess and enthusiasm on the tennis court cemented many family and social relationships over the years. Jim loved the sporting life and shared it generously with family and friends alike.
