    Jim, I just learned of your passing today. You were an awesome QB, but more importantly, you were a decent and upbeat person with a great sense of humor. I’ll never forget the many laughs we had together in drafting class. I am so glad that we had a chance to meet again at our 30th class reunion. My deepest sympathies go out to your family. Rest in peace and God Bless.
