Jimmy and family, Growing up in Bergenfield with Jimmy and Charley and family we spent a lot of time around your house. I know "Mr. and Mrs. Jacobsen" loved having the kids in the neighborhood around. We always had a great time. My thoughts and prayers go out to the family. John Secco

Dear Jim and family, please accept my sincere condolences on the passing of your father. The interaction I had with him at BC golf dinners was always memorable. I am in HK and cannot attend in person but wanted to know you were in my thoughts and prayers.
