Our family has only known the Jo-clan for 4 years. I got to know Jim on an SU lax field. I remember it being 95 degrees, the games were running late and we had to pick up our daughters from the dorms at the same time I had a meeting. There was Jim, a huge iced cooler of water for the parched, a chair to sit in and an answer to my impending transportation conflict. He was a life saver. I joked with he and Liz, that he would make a great "girl Friday", which is a very '50's term for an assistant. From that day, his affectionate nick name from me was "boy Friday". And Boy Friday's super power? ....He had the unique ability to put you at ease and be a friend to all.
