Life away from Work:
Jim is a Grade 6 USSF Soccer Referee and that takes much of his weekend time from March through November. He has been doing it for 17 years and he focuses on competitive Club games, Semi-Professional games, State Cup games and Olympic Development Program (ODP) games to name a few. According to Jim, it's a great escape from phone calls, emails, and contract negotiations while requiring constant, high-speed decision making for ninety minutes each game.
Jim has a BS degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Illinois and was a Bell Honor Student Recipient. He also has an MS degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Illinois and an MBA with a Marketing & Finance concentration from Northern Illinois University.
