In memory of James Colby

Dear Friends, Family, Colleagues and Community,

As you may have heard, our dear friend, father, husband and fellow-artist James Colby passed away February 23, 2018.

He will be missed beyond words. He is survived by his wife, the actress Alyssa Bresnahan, and their seven-year-old daughter, Shannon.

As we know, a life in the arts can be precarious and fragile, especially with children. With that in mind, this GoFundMe page has been created by friends and colleagues in Jim's memory to support his family as they cope with his passing and make the difficult transition into a new life without Jim.

All donations, big or small, are deeply appreciated.

Thank you.
