James attended local schools, including Sacramento High School, and graduated from Sacramento State with a degree in Civil Engineering in 1961. He was employed in highway engineering for 36 years, a career he considered a passion more than anything. James thoroughly enjoyed the outdoors with interests in fishing, biking, jogging and golf.
