A native of Dassel, MN, Jim was a retired Geophysicist with NAVOCEANO. He was a member of St. Charles Borromeo Catholic Church .

A man of nine lives, he survived: a forest fire, an airplane crash in the Antarctic, a motorcycle accident in Bermuda, the ‘71 California Earthquake, Hurricane Katrina, a tornado and the 2020 Pandemic.  With NAVOCEANO he traveled to all 7 continents, Easter Island and many Polynesian Islands. He loved Picayune and made it his home.

His motto at church was “If you can’t sing good, sing loud”.  His motto in life was “Never do today what you can put off until tomorrow”.  He practiced what he preached until death.  His hobbies included conversing with phone scammers, sharing his MAGA wisdom, and drinking with chickens.
