For over 9 (nine) years, he was Scout Master for Boy Scouts of America, Troop 5 & Chairman of the Boy Scouts Committee. He thoroughly immersed himself in the Revere Little League & Revere Youth Hockey (now-Everett-Revere Youth Hockey).

    I met Jim on my very first day at CoreSite in September 2013 and he was like another uncle to me. We would talk about any subject from work, family life, sports and how Boston has changed in the past 30 yrs. Jim was always upbeat and cheerful no matter the situation and I admired that about him. Even though Jim was battling cancer he would always ask about how my wife was doing (My wife developed brain cancer in 2016 and passed in June 2017) and I will always cherish that. Jim was never one to complain about what was going on with his battle. I, along with the BO1 team at CoreSite will miss Jim dearly. Please keep smiling in heaven Jim and my condolences to his family and close friends.

    With a heavy hear,
    Joseph S. Gaffney
