Jim was born in Bakersfield, but then the family moved to Tulelake where James graduated High School in 1965. Jim married his first wife, Janell, shortly after graduation and before joining the Marines where he served honorably. Jim was a combat veteran in the Vietnam conflict. After serving in the Marines, Jim returned to the Klamath Basin, where Jim and Janelle had three sons. He worked for Weyerhauser for 25 years until they closed down, and then he worked for the Klamath County Road Department until his retirement in 2009. Jim enjoyed hunting and fishing with his sons, and later camping with his wife Linda with their travel trailer. After his retirement, Jim and Linda would travel to southern Nevada and Arizona as “Snowbirds” each winter for a month or two away from the frigid Klamath winters to enjoy warmer weather.
