Condolence: Our sincere condolences to the Sumas family, we are sorry for your loss.

We will miss Jimmy. He was more than a teacher and boss, I always thought of him as a "Great Coach". He really listened to you and the issues of the day. He would then work with you to discuss options and come up with the best solution. He is missed.
