James Kim Found Deceased

general Add comments (2)

I was deeply saddened to hear that James Kim was found dead today in the Oregon wilderness. While I did not know James Kim, I did feel a kinship with him, as I am sure many did in the tech community here in the bay area. We lost one of our own.

You hear about heroes all the time, and certainly a great many are serving overseas in these troubled times. But seldom do you find one in your own back yard. I can only imagine the conversation Kim had with his wife just before he set out on his own, as she likely begged him not to go. I can’t pretend to know the grief she and her family are going through right now, knowing that if he’d only waited a few more days, their family would still be whole.

Our thoughts and prayers are with James Kim and his family on this sad day.
