Jim and his wife Ellen have recently moved to the Seattle area. Growing up in Chicago, he says, “I had the wonderful experience of not just an extended Irish family, but the Irish heritage on full display in two major institutions, the Church and city government. That showed me not only the warmth of the Irish culture but the strength of the Irish and other immigrants who came to build up this country.” ♦
