I&m sorry that I couldn&t make it to the mass or the viewing for your husband. Be assurred, though, that you have been very much in my thoughts and prayers. I can see that Jim was just as service oriented as you are, so the Savior must love him very much. I suspect that Jim is experiencing a joyful time now, for which one must be glad through the sadness.
May you feel the love of all around you and comfort through you faith.
Fondly, Joan Low

Eileen, Nick and Kim,

Jim was our classmate from the class of 1964 at Southwood High School. I (Cheryl) began working for SSA in 1966. We lived in Wausau, WI for about 10 years and Jim was the manager of the office there. When he arrived at the office, he told the staff that he did not remember much about me except that I was editor of the school newspaper. He had written an article about how horrible the school lunches were and I published the article. I took a lot of heat but he was right -- the lunches were pretty bad!!! We always got a good laugh out of that story. It is a small world.

Jim was always a quiet man but he was very smart and always took the time to listen to you and make the office a better place to work. The employees loved him because he never forgot where he came from. He was a great manager and every time I talk to the people in the Wausau office they still remember Jim and ask about him. He replaced a manager that had been there for decades and was liked by everyone. Jim came with a sense of calm and everyone felt very comfortable with him at once.

Jim always talked about his children and got a big smile on his face when he told stories about them. He loved you very much.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

Our deepest sympathy for the Weiss Family. I did not know James personaly but as Eileen&s nephew I feel the pain and agony of losing family so young. Such a short time after celebrating Mary Ceil LaReau, it was such a shock to hear that we are visited again with grief. We of Faith know this is not the end, and so we remember and laugh and know that we will see them again only without the pain and suffering. As we yearn for that day we know we will all take this path until the return of our Lord, Jesus.
God Bless the family and friends, you are in our thoughts and prayers.

Mike, Lucy and the Boys

My heart goes out to your family. Jim hired me in October 1985- I placed a call to the SSA office and he spoke with me. I was living in Washington DC and wanted to transfer to Lafayette IN so our (5) children could all go to Purdue. He was so kind to me and told me if I was willing to take a chance, he&d have a position for me. We moved here and I worked at SSA until my retirement in 2003. I enjoyed working with him and he was always fair with everyone. The office was never the same after he retired. He will truly be missed. My prayers are with your family today.

I am so sorry to learn of Jim&s death. I grew up with Jim and went to school with him at Noble Twp and at Southwood we graduated in the same class. I remember the times we shared in Latin class with Miss Murphy; it was not Jim&s favorite.... And, we were in band together. Since Noble was a small school we had many classes together. I have many fond memories of Jim. I am so sorry for each of you as you go through these difficult days. Please know you are in my thoughts and prayers. Mary Ann
