Jim grew up in Spokane in Washington state and lived in Washington off and on for many years before finally making Reno his more permanent home.  Most of his closest living relatives still live in Washington or Hawaii.

After retiring from his job as a gun salesman he has found his calling as a true believer in and advocate of Eniva nutraceutical products.  His strong political beliefs have found him fervently supporting the Ron Paul campaign for which he has worked tirelessly.  He was a delegate at the recent Republican National Convention.  For years, riding his Harleys has been one of his great joys.   

At the time of his accident, the evening of September 3rd, Jim was driving up the Florida Coast before he returned home after serving as a delegate at the Republican National convention. 

Jim has a huge and inspiring circle of friends across the country, many who have made contact with us.
