On January 29, 1935, James W. Wilson, Jr. was born in Montgomery, Alabama and would have been 85 years old today. He is missed, yet remembered, by many. In 1975, he formed Jim Wilson & Associates and planted the seeds of sound business and excellent real estate development. Projects of Jim Wilson, too numerous to mention, are found throughout the Southeastern United States. As was his custom to close staff meetings with a special card evidencing a life quote, we close this short tribute with several of his favorites:
• Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.
– Vince Lombardi
• Remembering where you’ve been is the key to getting where you want to go.
– John MacArthur
• Standing still is not an option.
• By failing to prepare you are preparing to fail.
– Ben Franklin
• Listen to counsel and receive instruction, that you may be wise in your latter days.
– Proverbs 19:20
Happy Birthday, Jim.
