James and his wife Stephanie are high school sweet hearts and got married right out of high school. They have been married 20 years and have 3 children. William 18, Jacey 16, and Haily 11. James enjoys cheering his kids on at their basketball games both as a spectator and as a coach. They enjoy spending time as a family, camping, watching movies, going to sporting events, traveling, and have recently discovered they enjoy hiking in the Black Hills.
After being invited to a small group bible study by a friend, James was immediately introduced to the Executive Director of Heartland Kids Against Hunger. As soon as he found out there was a need to fill, he wasted no time jumping in to help, as he has always had a heart and passion to serve, give back, and help in anyway he possibly can. He started volunteering right away and hasn't looked back.
