Dear Mr. and Mrs. Scheffler,

My name is Antonio Chau and we met once in Fall 1989. I was Jim's roommate at Temple. I have been looking for him for years. It is sad that I finally found him with this link. He was a sunny boy and everyone likes him. Our room is always crowded with his friends. I was fresh off the boat from Hong Kong at that time. Jim taught me all the US slang. Taught me how to watch NFL. I am a die hard Eagles fan until now because of him. I still remember his birthday. He is 7 days older than me. Jun 21 is the longest day of the year. I still remember he said that to me. My email is If you will visit Hong Kong, Macau or China. I would love to catch up.

Dear Bev and Glenn and family. I send my deepest sympathy in the passing of Jim. Jim was one half of the gang busters that Peggy and Leon would always say. We always enjoyed when you came home to Slatington so that we could all of you and every time the boy would getting bigger and coming such great men. Treasure the the memories of Jimmy and he will always be with you in your heart. I will remember his smile and giggling and always having a good time when he was in Slatington. My thoughts and prayers are with your family.

I'll always remember the times shared with Jim when we visited in Connecticut growing up. I would always look forward to seeing him as we shared many of the same interests in sports, baseball cards and especially a love for Philadelphia sports teams. Jim was the most knowledgeable person about sports that I knew. I always admired his competitiveness when playing any games and will cherish all the fun times we had playing basketball in the pool or wiffle ball in the backyard, where Jim would pretend to be a sports announcer and call his own play-by-play...with the funniest, most over-the-top sayings...then impersonate the cheering crowds of Veterans Stadium as he "hit a home run to win the World Series."

Growing up, Jim was someone that I looked up to, and I'll never forget how excited I would be for the day after Christmas, when we would celebrate at Grandma & Pappy's house in Slatington. He was like the big brother coming for a visit, and the excitement and humor he brought to the dinner table would always get me in trouble. His child-like playfulness was always something that I'll remember even as we grew older and had families of our own. One day my daughters were describing to him their favorite princesses: Snow White, Cinderella and Jasmine. Jim's response was: "Well, I don't know about them, but I do know Princess Leia and Queen Amidala!"...referencing Star Wars royalty. He only received little blank stares...but everyone else got it and laughed.

Very sad for Jim's far to early passing, but the memories that I have of him will always bring a tear to my eye and a warmth in my heart.

Jim was a consistent presence in my life from the day I was born. When I was asked in school how many siblings I had, I replied "one sister and two brothers. His presence was a foregone conclusion, a given, until now. What remains are countless memories collected throughout our lives. I'll remember his almost inhuman ability to launch himself from a diving board, his infectious excitement over something that was just too much to hold inside he'd end up rubbing his hands together like an evil villain from a movie, his off-brand sense of humor that I always laughed at but rarely understood. I think maybe I was really laughing at how funny he thought it was and that was enough for me. I wish the last time I hugged him good-bye I held on a little longer, a little tighter. I wish I told him I loved him. I would like to think he already knew. Jim, you are loved, you will be remembered and you are missed. Rest in Peace. Thank you for my piece of your Dream.
