Over the years Jim has volunteered his time to work with the University of Vermont and Delta Psi Alumni Corporation in many capacities as well as The Sara Holbrook Community Center, The Flynn Theatre, United Way, Bishop’s Fund, Chittenden County Court Diversion Program and many more local charitable organizations.
In his free time, Jim enjoys boating on Lake Champlain with his Family, skiing, traveling and time with friends at “Camp”.
