My sincere sympathies on Jim's passing. He was a great guy who I had the pleasure of working with on multiple engagements over the years. I especially remember his visits to our home outside of Denver for "wine" night! His teachings to so many consultants, his advice on all things work and personal, and his memory will live on!

I remember vividly a bad work day I was having in 1994. My client at the time was Thrift Drug (remember them?). I got an out-of-the-blue call from a headhunter and, because of the bad day I was having, replied, "Go on. I'm listening." Several days later I found myself in an interview with Jim in the Pittsburgh FCG office. I was immediately blown-away by Jim's intellect and his insightful and caring questions of me. Soon after I joined FCG, Jim invited me into his family and I'm proud to say that I've been a family friend ever since. When I joined FCG, my son Jack (born in 1991) was just learning how to skate and play hockey. Jim invited Jack and me to a game that his high school age sons Vince and Jimmy were playing. Jack and I got there early and Jim took Jack by the hand and led him into the locker room where his son's were dressing. Jack, a little intimidated and holding tightly onto Jim's hand, was wide-eyed at being in the locker room with the "big kids". In the mid-2000s, Jim retired and I left FCG helped start another firm. We were delighted when Jim's son Vince joined the scrappy little start-up that we called Aspen Advisors. One of the best parts of Vince joining us is that it gave Jim and me reasons to stay connected. Not too long ago, I was in Pittsburgh and Vince and Lindsey had invited me to dinner. I was so happy when Vince said that he invited Celeste and Jim to join us and the seven of us (Celeste, Jim, Lindsey, Vince, Palmer, Sebastian and I) had a wonderful evening. I love you "Big Jim" and learned so much from you in so many ways and miss you already.

Both Ashley and I send our most sincere, heartfelt condolences to the entire family in the sudden loss of a husband/father/grandfather, and our neighbor. For some uncanny reason, we had debated to walk our dogs, but we did. We believe that this was fate for us to go for the walk and fate that brought us to the evening of Jim’s passing. We only hope that Jim knew he was not alone in his passing. It was our instincts to help Jim to even have the slightest chance of being with us today, but unfortunately the outcome ended in his passing. Both my wife and I countlessly run the entire scenario through our minds to only conflict our thoughts that we know we did our best but where could we have done better. We cannot help to think this, but truthfully we are sorry for the unforeseen loss of Jim. Again with heavy heart Ashley and I send our condolences and if you need anything from us we are just down the street (209 Foxburg Drive). Sincerely, Ryan and Ashely Detwiler.
