On a personal note, Jim has been involved in surveying since he was 13 years old. His father was an engineer and surveyor for Allegheny
County and worked for himself part-time doing surveying. He taught Jim the trade. They would go out into a field and Jim's father showed him
how to draw up survey plans, as well as to do field work. Surveying has been a life-long passion!
Congratulations Jim and thank you for all you do.
