Beth, my heart breaks for you in the loss of Jim. He was always so sweet to us servers at Simple Simons, and we had an equal soft spot for him! Sending sympathy your way during this most difficult time.

I had the privilege of working with Jimmy for many many years on Westbrook Rescue and Portland public safety, he was always happy and never got upset over anything.He was the first person to step forward to help anyone in need! He was great at what he did and will be very sadly missed by all who knew him! RIP Jim

Sorry for your loss. One of the best dispatchers we ever had. No matter the call his voice never changed calming. He will be missed!

JR was a great guy. He always had a chuckle ready after a stressful call. My condolences to Beth and the kids.
