“Dear Lord, we pray for the sake of those assembled here to honor Jim, that you find for him a special place in heaven where he can grow his garden, to share with others, loved ones who have gone on before him, those wonderful fruits and vegetables and nuts, and that they will assemble there to enjoy his special food and to hear his special humor and stories and feel the warmth of his love. We ask those left behind to remember Jim’s special gifts and the contributions that he has made and to keep his memory alive.   We honor his life, Father, and we thank you for the privilege of sharing in the life of one your special creations.  Amen”

Those of us who had the chance to get close to Jim are fortunate to have been his friends. He was special…and he did special things for the produce world.

We will all miss Dr. Jim Joseph…even if you never knew him.
Researchers like Jim play a vital role in the ultimate success of the produce industry.

Be sure to hug a researcher today.

I happen to find your article on Dr. Joseph, today. Our last meeting was with fellow high school classmates. Jim never changed just became older and more accomplished. He exhibited a young man with a goal to analyze and solve the problems of our world. James(Jim) accomplished many goals as a friend, man, scientist and classmate. He proved opportunity will result in greatness for our youth seeking anwsers.

I met Dr. Joseph in at an aging conference in St. Pete. I arranged for him to speak at grand rounds at the McKnight Brain Institute at the University of Florida in 2005. It was very well received and I got a chance to get to know him, to some degree. I was shocked at his early death and would like to know the cause. Thanks
