Survived by wife Kate & daughter Anne (Jason), Children from previous marriage to Polly Olmstead: Theo, Andy (Jeanne Cochran), Ben (Liz), grandchildren Julia, Peter, Katie, Jack. Many beloved nephews, cousins, family, and friends. Born in Mpls, Jim lived in St. Paul, Stillwater, Mpls, & Eden Prairie. Attended SPA, MIT, UofM, & Stanford, served in MN Air National Guard. A true renaissance man, Jim had an insatiable curiosity, was a voracious reader with vocabulary to match; loved literature, film, art, and poetry. He shared his passion for an uncommonly broad range of music, of which he had a deep knowledge, and collected a small museum's worth of instruments. Travel was a big part of Jim's life, working on the Empire Builder train as a teen, selling for Braniff and SAS, running Wallace Travel, and traveling the world for work and leisure. He loved canoeing, sailing, and scuba diving. A talented photographer, Jim chronicled our lives with stunning shots filling countless albums and drives, with cherished enlargements in friends' homes. Intrigued by genealogy, he created a digital family history, and recently, a memoir. An eloquent writer, communicator, and visionary manager, Jim did groundbreaking branding and advertising work for BBDO, Siegel+Gale, and Cargill. An advocate for equity, Jim would address ethical disparities head-on and form lasting bonds with friends and colleagues. He had a wit and style like no other. Special thanks to the care team at Abbott NW Wound Clinic for many years of attentive care. No service to be held, per Jim's wishes. Memorials to the Ronald McDonald House.
