Feels like the referee has blown the final whistle when the second half has just only started.

RIP Jim.

A classic example of what we look for in a FT member has left us too soon. RIP Jim.

Oh, Jim, if you are logging into FT from Heaven I can only repeat everything here and add that your advice when we met on the cruise at OzFest Cairns was invaluable and I use it all the time. Sad to know that we last had some enjoyable chats and dinners at OzFest Adelaide and I will truly miss you here and from this earth.

I am extremely sad to read of your passing. RIP.

I first met Jim on one of my early MR's. I believe it was at JFK when I was flying UA. I did a short MR (about 8-9 yrs ago) and saw Jim @JFK. He saw my FT tag and we spoke. I met him at several more functions around the world and he & Jerrie couldn't have been nicer. (and very helpful!)

I am grounded due to cancer but I hope to be flying again later this year.

RIP Magic111 (Jim). Although he was living life to the fullest, his passing came much too early in his life.

The number of times I recall great conversations with Jim of reason and valuable contributions toward the success that is FlyerTalk reaches well into the double digits. His particular passion for the right thing for all the visitors to the AAdvantage forum and beyond still guides me today and will forever.

This is a man whose time clearly was cut too short. This is a member whose contributions are so imbedded in the mantra of FlyerTalk for wanting to help others, that he will always be part of the history that will be written for FlyerTalk.

We are all here for his memory today, tomorrow and for every day after. I am truly quite saddened by this news, FlyerTalk has truly lost a dear, dear friend.
Amen.. as I noted previously elsewhere.. just shock .. and then dismay.. super guy.. way too
soon.. he'll be sorely missed.. condolences to Jerrie & the family..

Punki and I shared many experiences with Jim and Jerrie, from Dusseldorf to Hong Kong, Basel, NYC and more. The last one with Jim was the BRT last year. We will miss him dearly, and offer our heartfelt condolences to Jerrie.

He was way too young to leave this earth.

I met Jim at a couple conferences but didn't know him real well. He seemed like a kind and gentle soul. Way to early to leave this place. RIP my friend. Prayers going out to his family.

FortFun found Jim's trip report from the first Brooklyn Tour. It's a nice read, and really gives you an idea of the type of person Jim was. http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/trip-...-brooklyn.html
