James Sanders was born on November 12th, 1954 in Gartenstadt-Ludwigshafen. He was raised by his mother, Grete Sanders, in Germany until the age of 9 when she took her "mischling" son to America, hoping for a better future in a more open and accepting society.

They settled first at Fort Knox, Kentucky where, true to his German roots, he intensely studied and mastered the English language within a short period of time.

Jimmy went to elementary school in various places in the USA but was in Frankfurt, Germany for high school and obtained his college degree from Fordham University in New York City.

His first job after graduation was with GTE and on a business trip to the island of Curacao in 1983, he met and within 5 months, married his loving wife, Jeanette.

In 2003, Jimmy set aside his career in business to pursue his lifelong passion, photography. He developed his own business as a professional freelance photographer and became an advocate for his peers.

Jimmy left us at age 60, early Thursday morning, May 21, 2015. He is survived by his wife, Jeanette Sanders, his mother, Grete Sanders and a large, close extended family in Curacao, USA and Germany.
