Jim grew up in Roseville near Snelling and County Road B, where Jim’s parents owned a fish market and he was the youngest of five brothers.   

Jim graduated from Mounds View High School in 1961 and then attended the University of Minnesota where he earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Business in 1966.  

Jim began his career working for the State of Minnesota Department of Commerce, auditing insurance companies and traveling throughout the US.  He spent his entire career in various roles working for the State of Minnesota where he retired after 30+ years. In 1989 - Jim moved from New Brighton to the Chisago Lakes area where he lived on Mattson Lake north of Chisago City.

Jim was diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease in 2011 and enjoyed many great years before the disease took its toll on his body.   Jim was called to be with his Lord on April 27th.  He died peacefully, in his sleep, with his wife of 22 years by his side.
