“For everyone to whom much is given, from him much will be required…” (Luke 12:48, NKJV). Jim has been given much, and that’s the attitude he brings to each class he teaches.
Jim began his career as an Army officer in the Infantry, and later accepted an appointment in the Medical Service Corps. His military awards include the Legion of Merit, Bronze Star Medal, Meritorious Service Medal, Army Commendation Medal, Army Acheivement Medal, and Humanitarian Service Medal. He retired as a Lieutenant Colonel after 22 years of service. Jim moved to Rochester for employment with Kodak and Johnson & Johnson as a Principal Scientist in R&D and Quality Assurance. After retiring from J&J, he affiliated with Stat-A-Matrix, Inc. as a management consultant in FDA and ISO regulations. He has over two dozen publications in the areas of management and clinical laboratory science; presented symposiums and workshops at national meetings, and served on a number of professional committees. Jim is a certified Six Sigma Black Belt, and is presently a member of the American Society for Quality, and The Church Network (aka, National Association of Church Business Administration).
He treasures the peace of God in his life, and his favorite ‘chill-out’ verse is, “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:6-7, NKJV).
