Jim Janda was a great friend, father, husband, Soldier and Non Commissioned Officer. He deployed twice, to both Iraq and Afghanistan, placing the needs of his country above his own and those of his family. He was a true patriot who believed in helping others and never turned down a friend in need. He passed away too soon, unexpectedly in his sleep. He is survived by his wife Tracey, daughter Jamie, and son Nicholas. As his friends, colleagues and brothers in arms, there is nothing we can do to help you get over his loss, but we are all here for you, as we know he would have been here for us.
