I am so sorry and shocked to hear about the loss of Jim. My family and I knew him very well during his late high school and early college years. He was an exceptional young man... He went through so much at such a young age and persevered. Went on to be such a success. His family must be so proud. I'm sorry he was taken from you way to soon. My heart,thoughts and prayers go out to Jims entire family. RIP Jim from the Meyer family.

Through mutual "baseball" friends, Jaime connected with me, and acted as a mentor to help get me through my illness. He had just finished his treatments at the time I started, back in '91. He was a wonderful help, and such an inspiration to me. I

Priya and family,

I am so sorry to learn of the loss of your husband, father, friend and companion. He impacted so many residents with his eagerness to teach and bright smile. He was a talented surgeon and mentor. I remember him being so excited that his first Whipple patient as an attending didn't ask him how old he was. Sending you love from Colorado.
