Condolences to the family of Jim Cosenza

It was reported that classmate and friend Jim Cosenza has succumbed to his battle with the same brain cancer that John Mc Cain suffers from.

When working in Connecticut, we spent many Saturday nights with Jim and Chris Cosenza.  We would usually play the Italian card game of cheating.  Jim was a married student classmate of mine.  His favorite story that I remember had to do with his employment as a student.  As a married student, he was evidently given the elite job in the gardening department of watering plants in executive offices in the Hall of Administration.  He told of watering plants for months before he discovered that they were artificial.  My recollection is that Jim later worker in the Italian department.

Condolences to Chris, and children David and Julie.

After Jim graduated from AC he joined me in the WWCG Advertising Dept.  We became good friends during the time we worked together, and I had high regard for him and his dedication to his family, his job and the church.   Because of a chronic illness he had to leave Pasadena and return to his home state of Connecticut.  I  lost contact with him at that time, about 1973. I'm glad to hear that he apparently recovered from that earlier illness, and saddened to hear of his recent death. He was a genuinely kind and quality man.
