A ’77 alumni of Western State College in Gunnison, Jim returned to the area after a successful career in public administration. He has been a licensed Realtor since 1999. Jim has four children and two stepchildren, all of whom are Gunnison High School graduates. Jim has served on the Western State Colorado University Foundation board, the Gunnison Arts Center board, and the local Realtor Association board. Jim and his wife, Kathy, cherish living in the Gunnison Valley and make the most of their time off work enjoying the mountain scenery and recreation close to home. Traveling is another favorite pastime, but the road always leads back to the beautiful Gunnison Country.
