Jim inspired me through his vision, his passion for a more connected humanity. His relentless approach at doing something that could change the world despite challenges inspired me to start campaigning out of college. I’ve been able to help hundreds of people connect to thousands. Thank you Jim for your way of being, for your humanity, for your love and passion. Thank you for reminding us to be grateful in the moment for what we have.

Jim’s vision for a connected humanity has guided my life and work for the past 7 years. As a friend, Jim was kind and loving and always game to jump right past the fluff to get into deep, honest conversations. As a leader, Jim was brave, unapologetic, and visionary. Thank you, Jim, for transforming my life and helping me find what it is I’m meant to do.

Meeting Jim and joining his team unquestionably changed my life for the better. I will always be grateful to him for that, and for the inspiration he ignited in seemingly everyone he met. I’ll never forget the first staff meeting where I heard him speak, during which he was back from the brink of an especially trying moment of his illness and still spoke with such verve and uncompromising vision that all I could do was cry. At my new job. In a staff meeting. And feel so incredibly thankful be doing just that. Thank you, Jim, for everything.

Jim was the most fearless, brilliant, and determined person I’ve ever met. On an intense journey fueled by purpose and meaning, we closely collaborated for over 13 years. We were friends for even longer. I’m forever grateful for everything I learned, and will continue to learn, for his unwavering belief in me, and his insistence that everyone always show up as their full, authentic self. It was one of the great privileges of my life. Thank you Jim. ❤️
