Jim was born and raised in Nebwuryport. A high school grad of NHS 1975. Jim and his wife raised their family in Newburyport.

On 5/16 Jim was complaining of chest pain; Amesbury ALS was called to the house. They brought him to the Portsmouth Hospital where he under went surgery for a double bypass. Hopefully if everything goes well, he will be home by Thursday or Friday. Jim will have strict restrictions such as no driving for a month and no lifting for three months. It's going to be a long road to recovery.

Jim has spent his life helping others now it's our time to help him in a time of needed. 

Jim has helped others over the years; by either showing up in the tow truck with Volphone Towing, dispatching an ambulance to a medical emergency (Amcare-AMR) or fixing a tire at the shop even when someone couldn't afford to have it fixed.

His wife has also missed work to be by his side during this. As we all know between the ambulance ride, being in ICU, and rehab. It's going to be a long road to recovery. With all the medical bills along with the house bills, things are going to add up fast. Any little bit will help.

Thanks for the thoughts and kind words.

FINAL UPDATE! !!!

Roughly two weeks dad had his final appointment at PRH. They give him a clear bill of health and allowed him to return to normal work load. Dad still has to becareful when it comes to lifting. He has to finish his rehab session to the AJ. Dad has extended the hours at the Tire Shop which can be found on their FB page. I would like to take a moment and thank everyone for all the kind words, thoughts, prayers, cards and etc. It means a lot to the family and dad. Thank you all for all the generous donations. By far and large this gofund account did so much better than I ever thought it would. Every little bit has helped out greatly.
I will have this page up for another week just in case someone is just seeing this and wants to help out.

Thank you!!!! Pleas share

Hey Everyone, this past Monday dad had another appointment with the doctor at the Portsmouth. Everything looks good. He has been cleared to all types of driving. He has been cleared to lift up too 25 lbs. Finally, he can now start his cardiac rehab at the Anna Jaques in Newburyport. As for working, nothing really has changed.

The bills are starting in file in..

Thank you all for the kind words and donations so far.

Every little bit helps. Please share and pass along!!!

Hey Everyone, its been awhile since the last update. He is doing really good. He has been cleared to drive Yay!!! Last friday he had a appointment with the doctors at the Portsmouth Hospital; everything looks good so far.

Lately, there have been some rumors going around that dad is closing Jay's Tire; these rumors are completely false and unfounded. We are doing our best to keep the business going during all of this. We only maybe open a few hours each day but its better than nothing. After a few hours of just being at the shop and talking to people, dad is wiped out.

The medical bills are starting to file in. Every little bit helps. Thanks for all the generous donations by all.

Pleae share and thank you !!
