A 1985 graduate of Palatine High School, Jim was a plumber by trade. He had a kind and generous heart and was always willing to lend a hand to family or friend. Jim was very involved in his children’s lives, helping with Mikayla’s softball teams and coaching Cam’s hockey and baseball teams. Jim was an avid Blackhawk’s fan (“Go, Hawks!”) and loved playing hockey himself.
