Jim was born in the small town of Ilion in upstate New York. Shortly after high school he joined the United States Navy. He spent his first two years of service in Orlando in the Navy’s Nuclear Propulsion Training Program, this which is where he met his wife, Cathy. Following his training in Orlando, they were transferred to Norfolk, Virginia where he was stationed on board the USS South Carolina and was deployed to Operation Desert Storm. Later he transferred to Fitchburg, Massachusetts where he served as Recruiter in Charge of the Station. After leaving the Navy, Jim moved to Topsham, Maine where he and Cathy raised their family. Jim worked for Bath Iron Works for 20+ years serving in various capacities including working as a Senior Design Supervisor during the design and construction of the USS Zumwalt, DDG-1000.

His introduction to The Villages started when a coworker described it to him and he and Cathy decided to see what it was all about while in Orlando for a family vacation and fell in love. Their plan to move to this wonderful community was put in place which thankfully became a reality.

They enjoy spending time at the pools and enjoying the music at the town squares with family. Jim and Cathy have three children, Ryan, Brittany and Brady and have two grandchildren, Raiden and Baker.

Jim looks forward to helping you make your dreams come true here in The Villages as well!
