  • In the almost 30 years I have been here, Jim was the best teacher, mentor and boss I ever had.He always guided and taught even when he reprimanded.The man has a dignity and character rarely found these day's, a true class act.His smile was infectious and his upbeat attitude kept many of us going when we wanted to scream.Jimplease know that all of us down here in the Customer Help Center at SBC send our love and gratitude to him for being such a kind and compassionate leader as well as a true friend.

23. Memoirs to a Friend

  • Name that Director. Jim and I are coming back from lunch and we catch site of a DTC Director walking out of the mens room with his suit jacket tucked deep in his pants. Jim and I, in silence knew the drill and burst out laughing. And, for a week every time thereafter we saw him we whined hysterically.Ariel Fernandez

24. Memoirs to a Friend

  • The best years at DTC for me was being Jims secretary.He was every secretarys dream of a great boss; in other words hardly a BOSS.He had a smile on his face every day and seldom did he ever get angry.I remember a funny incident I walked into Jims office, he was so busy and didnt look up to see who was there, assuming it was one of his buddies he said What the F do you want? After he looked up at me, he apologized for weeks.
  • Best Wishes in your Retirement,
