Jim taught me so much about the filtration. He was not only a mentor, he was a dear friend. The industry surely lost a good friend and his knowledge will sorely be missed with his passing. May god bless him and the family. Robert Colombo

I only have a few memories of my Uncle Jim as a kid but I remember he was a kind, generous, and funny guy. I regret that our family was not closer. I would like to thank everyone that helped to take care of him.

I was the second to retire from the Donaldson Ivyland plant after Jim. He was a tremendous gentleman and a joy to work with. He inspired me to be the best I could be each and every day. The manner in which he managed through his illness was beyond remarkable. I would like to express my sincere condolences to the family and wish you all God's comfort and peace. Jim will be greatly missed.

I'm so sorry for your loss. Jim was a super big help to me in learning about the filter business. So smart and so knowledgeable. But the thing I remember the most about Jim is his kindness. I pray for God to comfort your whole family during this time.
