As the Director of Facility Operations, Jim Ongman touched many lives and made a profound difference for school emergency preparedness efforts throughout American and the World.

Jim's craftsmanship contributed to
VIPlanning® Software & Online Services and he touched many lives. Jim so enjoyed his work contributing to the development of disaster preparedness software over the last few years. He hoped his efforts improved emergency preparedness, especially for the children.

We are honored to post some of the messages we received after Jim's passing.

Jim's work seemed to be more about a passion than a job

”It is with a heavy heart that I collect these wonderful thoughts and memories of Jim. I had the pleasure of meeting Jim through his work with Visual Imagry. Right off the bat, I knew that he was a man who knew his stuff. I was instantly comfortable with him as his possessed such a warm and easy going disposition. He was a joy to work with and to talk to.

To me, his work seemed to be more about a passion than a job. He cared about the product that he made for our schools and students. He knew that it was his responsibility to insure that all of the information he developed was accurate and useful, as lives of children depend on it.

I know Jim is in a place now where he is proud of his efforts while he was with us. When we leave this place, we all should desire to have made a difference in the lives of people in the world. There is no greater contribution in my eyes than to make that special contribution to children and make a difference in their lives. For it is those lives who will carry on the good that we have in this world. Jim gave this gift to us, and for that, we are grateful.

Chris Smith, Director of Emergency Preparedness
