    I grew up and graduated high school with Jim. Played baseball with him too. He was a great friend and even better person. A hard worker and dedicated family man. This is a huge blow for the New Brighton community and alumni. Rest in Peace Jimmy, you will be missed!

    Thank you for your coverage of this tragic event. I do want to offer a correction. Jim successfully operated his own construction business, Camp’s Construction, for many years. Our brother Matt is the employee at Friendsip Ridge.
