Jim was a 1966 grad of St. George. He and I started teaching together at Montini Catholic in Lombard in 1970. Jim was very popular as the Freshman football coach at Montini. In the late 1970s Jim had the chance to go to St. Rita and coach with Pat Cronin. Jim remained at St. Rita for the rest of his career and served for many years as Athletic Director.
Jim married Pamela Meltz and they have 3 children. Pam and I are from the same parish in Chicago, Transfiguration. Her older sister, Barbara, and I are classmates.
In March of 2014 St. Rita hosted a fund-raiser for Jim. Jim was there happily greeting the many who attended. I would not be surprised if they had over 1,000 there, a demonstration of their great love and appreciation for this fine man.
I've attached photos. The group shot shows the Montini contingent that attended that night. Please remember that it had been 40 years since Jim taught and coached these "kids" at Montini. But the years could not diminish their appreciation and respect. Their attendance 40 years later remains quite a testimonial.
