James (Jim) started working at Chippewa Valley Electric in Cornell on January 2, 1985. He was a dedicated employee who loved his job all 34 years and was recently promoted to Operations Manager. Jim had a great sense of humor and enjoyed always getting the last word - there was never a dull moment with Jim around. He was someone you could always rely on and was committed to serving his family and community. Jim was a family man and was so proud of his children and grandchildren. Jim was a dedicated husband, father and grandfather, and prioritized always being there for his family. He spent countless days watching them in their sporting activities and accomplishments over the years. His family was his greatest joy.
