was an inspiration to me... and he made what he
did look so easy.
I had the pleasure and honor
to work with Jim Ongman as part of the Visual Imagry
VIPlanning team over the last year and a half. Jim
was a consummate professional who truly demonstrated his passion and commitment
for the work he did.
Jim was an inspiration to me, in that he made what he did with the mapping and
floor plans look so easy, although, I knew it was not the case. Jim was a very
mild mannered, patient, humble and good humored colleague and friend.
The work that he did for the schools is invaluable in ensuring emergency preparedness
and assisting first responders during major emergencies to save lives, property
and the environment.
I miss him but I know that Jim Ongman will truly live on through his excellent
works and through the lives he touched.
