Jim is a Loss Control Consultant specializing in providing risk management services for the Illinois Public Risk Fund. He has lived in the Chicagoland area most of his life, and has worked most of his life within the safety and loss control fields.
Jim received his BS in Industrial Safety Engineering, and started working in the fire engineering and safety industry, providing safety consulting services for companies throughout the world. His first job made him realize that there is a true benefit, and need, to provide a safe working environment for all workers. Jim’s first job also gave him an opportunity to travel to all corners of the world, and gave him great perspective on the surprising similarities between our many cultures.
In his working travels, he learned that most people in this world do the same thing: they wake up, go to work, come home and spend their “fun time” with their friends and family. Jim’s goal is to make the “go to work” part of people’s life as safe as possible, to assure that they can return home in one piece so they can enjoy their real passions in life.
Jim enjoys doing anything outdoors, whether it is playing sports, hiking, camping, and kayaking. He especially enjoys spending time with his family and friends, traveling to new destinations and sharing fun and exciting moments. There is nothing better than having a great adventure experience and sharing it with the ones you love. A billboard that Jim saw many years ago really spoke to him, even though it is a little on the dark side, it is so true … “See the World Before You Leave It”.
