Internet Pioneer. He was the founder of Virtual Promote and later the network of sites commonly called Jim World. He was born a military brat in Jackson, Mississippi, and grew up all over the USA, and in Italy. He loved America deeply, and was very patriotic. He was the Guru of Internet Marketing and community creation, but he also was passionate about music, and spent time in his early years singing and performing. He enjoyed everything from Opera to Country Western. He was into writing, loved the outdoors, was a pilot, a rangemaster for rifle shooting, and volunteered hundreds of hours for Little League and for Boy Scouts of America. His favorite role in life was as Nick's father, and he said the day Nick was born was "the proudest day of my life." He is survived by his wife Cathy, his son Nick, and his many real-life and on-line friends. He died quietly and without pain following an 18 month battle with Congestive Heart Failure, and multiple strokes.
