Born on March 27, 1946, Jim served in the US Navy for 2 years on the S.S. Wilkinson. After his military service, Jim embarked on a distinguished 30-year career with the US Postal Service, where he held various positions including mail carrier, supervisor, and postmaster in Elida. He retired in 2001.
