Jim was raised outside of Chicago, Illinois in Crystal Lake. Jim moved to the Ocala area in middle school when he was in eighth grade. After graduating from a local high school, Jim enlisted in the United States Navy as a fire control man. He operated anti-air gun and missile systems for five years and misses every minute of it. Jim was very proud to serve his country.

Regardless, of any position in the several careers that Jim held prior to coming to the Villages, he feels that by far this is the best-suited career for him. The opportunity to meet new people from all over country and share this unique community with them is truly a gift that he feels blessed to do each and every day. Each experience and journey with a guest who has not been to The Villages before is a way for him to not only present a new Lifestyle for you to enjoy the best of years of your life but that perfect home as well.

On a personal note, Jim has two beautiful daughters Aubrey and Addalyn, and son Anderson.  Jim’s wife Jenny also serves The Villages working in the Sales Department. Jim and his family reside near the Villages community. For fun, Jim enjoys watching his oldest daughter play softball, attend sporting events, saltwater fishing, boating, gardening, and most importantly just spending time with family.

Jim watched The Villages expand since he first moved to Ocala in 1997. He became interested in The Villages after his first visit with his family for entertainment on the Spanish Springs Town Square. He is also fascinated by the antique car shows that are frequently showcased in The Villages. Jim has always experienced what he believes to be the nicest and happiest people on earth during his visits to The Villages.
