He graduated from Cloquet High School in 1976. Jim had been a car salesman for Krenzen's and North Country Auto Exchange and was currently working in the Wal-Mart Deli in Cloquet.

Every Friday you could find him out at garage sales. He was forever adding to his collections. Jim was a very engaging man and everyone enjoyed talking to him. He was fun spirited, had a million watt smile, and a boisterous laugh.
Jim was preceded in death by his father.
