Condolences for James D. “Jim” Lee


I learned of Jim's diagnosis at a visit to the courthouse last December and then had the good fortune to run into him in the parking lot of the Food Coop later that same day. We had had many pleasant conversations over the years about everything from kids and family, to bees and deer hunting. He was a credit to his profession and it was so good to see him one last time. The world would be a better place if there were more people like Jim. My sincere condolences to his family.

My heartfelt sympathies and comfort to Jim's family and all who had the pleasure of calling Jim a friend, neighbor, and colleague. A beautiful soul taken way too soon. Rest in Peace Jim.
From Laurie Boone

I was so sorry to learn of Jim's passing. I was a co-worker within the county and also served his mom. He always had a smile and friendly word. Jim was a kind, committed and caring person who will be missed by all who knew him. My heartfelt sympathies are with you all. Warmest regards, Ingrid Constalie

Jim was a remarkable brother and friend. He was the navigator of our family, and his loss is deeply painful. He was a great communicator and would call often to check in and talk things through. One of the last things I heard Jim say while I sat by him in hospital was, “I should give Jody a call.” Oh, how I wish we could have one more talk. I believe, Jim would tell me that it’s okay to be sad but to not let sadness overshadow the good, the happiness, and the humor that can be found in each day. And, I would tell him, that’s easier said than done, but I will try. I love and miss you very much, Jim.

I am so saddened to hear of Jim’s passing. He was truly one of the kindest people I had the honor of knowing. Back in the 80’s he came to my home to remove a huge bee hive in my crawl space. Luckily it was old and nothing in there. I had the privilege of seeing him on other occasions in the last few years with his job at Vernon County. My sincerest sympathy to Karen and family. The world was a better place with Jim in it.🐝🐝🐝🐝🐝🐝🐝🐝❤️

Sorry to hear of Jim’s passing. I don’t like to hear of our family drifting away to whatever is next, but he was a great example of how compassion and empathy will save this world.
From Greta Hansen

Our condolences, Karen and family, we are so sorry for your loss. Jim was a special and great man. I always enjoyed working with him and sharing stories about the turkey hunt he had or the whitetail he had gotten. He will truly be missed by all.

From Joelle

I'm saddened to learn you lost your wonderful husband. He is gone much, much too soon. I didn't know Jim as well as I knew you and your children, but I was fortunate to meet him once or twice, and it was clear to see what great husband, father, and truly good person he was. It shone out from his friendly face. My prayers to help you though this.
From Mike and Barbra Drake

I’m am so sorry to hear of Jim’s passing. It wasn’t long ago that I had the chance to visit with Jim and Karen along with their grandchildren in the booth at Kickapoo Corners. The love for his family was always evident. Jim’s infectious smile will always be remembered along with the time he came and rescued the bees from my sign outside. My thoughts are with you all as well as my deepest sympathies. -Dionne Dregne-Cary

Dear Karen and family, It deeply saddens me to hear about Jim. I've know Jim for many years having attended grade school and high school with him and he truly was one of a kind. Such a sweet and kind man. He will surely be missed by all who knew him. God's Blessings to all of you, Peggy
