For Jimmy's Sake...





Our loving son, Jim, was an amazingly loving and caring person with a zest to live life to the fullest, learn, and have fun. Jim had many family, friends, teammates, and associates who loved him dearly. He also had many close best friends from WVU, Central Bucks, and Somerton.  Jim was handsome, athletic, intelligent, and playful, and had a good job as a Financial Examiner for the NC State Insurance Commission. 

Jim attended St. Christopher's Catholic school in the Somerton section of Philly. At age 11, Jim and his family moved to Jamison, PA, where he attended Jamison Elementary and Tamanend Middle School where he received many awards, and accolades and was class VP. While in Tamanend, Jim was a super frosh wrestler for CB East and a 4-year letter varsity wrestler. He also was an avid baseball player, and umpire played football, and referee for Warrington Warriors.  Jim loved WVU and all his WVU alumni friends.  He graduated in with an Accounting degree. His WVU friends said some of his favorite spots were the Football Stadium, Mutts, Sportage, Original Dish Pizza, and summers on Cheat Lake.  Jimmy had many diverse interests from music, nature, hiking, sports, reading, and attending festivals, and an avid Philly Sports fan and loved the Jersey shore and exploring beaches everywhere, especially in Puerto Rico with his brothers. 

Despite numerous red warning signs, an NC licensed online Nurse Practitioner (pill pusher) continued to over-prescribe Adderall to Jim. Unfortunately, the severe negative side effects of this extremely dangerous medication caused Jim to take his life 10 days prior to his 32nd birthday, on June 5th, 2021. 

To honor Jim's memory and help others avoid the senseless, preventable tragedy that Jim's family and friends experienced for over 1 1/2 years, we have been holding events to help raise awareness of mental health, suicide prevention, and why it is important for all single adults to make sure that they sign HIPPA Privacy Authorization Forms and Advanced Healthcare Directives before there is a family emergency when it is too late.
