Who was this wonderful man, Jim? He was a man who first and foremost loved serving, preaching, and teaching for the Lord, Jesus. He loved being in the Word! He never stopped learning and growing spiritually through the Holy Spirit. Jim was determined to be absolutely and entirely for God, the Lord Jesus and HolySpirit. Everything else in his life grew from this, his integrity, strength, compassion, generosity, and love. He was a friend forever and would protect you with his life if need be. He never said no to anyone who needed help. Jim loved to eat out with his friends and to entertain and see people laugh, talk, and enjoy one another, it gave him great joy. He was a great workout enthusiast, having his own 'Jim's Gym' at home. He inspired many to get physically fit. This came from his time in the United States Marines, in which he enlisted voluntarily and was a West Seneca police officer. Jim was the Director of Yeshua Ministries, Inc. and held Bible studies and church at his home, where he taught and preached the Word of God. The ministries’ main function was 'Giving, serving and reaching souls for Lord' and supported various ministries locally and around the world and a ministry of Helps. With the guidance of the Lord Jesus the ministry will go forward as the Lord put it on Jim's heart many years ago. Jim's personality was as big as his heart, and to know him was to love him.
