As a captain in the RCAF he served with distinction but also served amature athletics playing Rugby, Soccer, Field Hockey and Cricket. While serving both OVCA and OCA, Jimmy eventually ascended to Cricket Canada's (then CCA's) presidency where he served with distinction.
As administrators, we should strive to extoll the virtues of hard work and dedication that Jimmy practiced.
