My family of Frank Martinez also grew up on San Rafael Street. My childhood memories with the Wilson family were remarkable. Later in years Jim carried his weight of professionalism to help me with my corporate banking needs. He was a true, genuine, honest and amazing person.
My blessings and condolences to the Wilson family.

I grew up with Jim. He was a neighbor and best friend for many years with my brother, Mike. I saw Jim about 4 years ago and we all went to Denny's where he bought a meal for someone there. He was generous in many ways. It feels like he was always a part of our family as well. He left his footprints of kindness and mentoring on my heart.
