I (Tom Gosche) enjoyed his articles through the years. He focused on interesting topics AND businesses in the Suburbs of Chicago. In 2017, Jim contacted me after getting my newsletter about questions you need to ask when buying a business. He later wrote an article featuring those questions and quoting me!
He looked everywhere in the suburban business community for ideas.A week after 2015 Business Taxes were due, he reminded everyone to look forward to 2016 taxes. Below is an interview with our CPA Greg Galla in 2016 discussing Business Taxes:
"He is survived by his wife Sharon, daughter Tracey, son-in-law Robert, and granddaughters Melinda and Gretchen. He was predeceased by his parents, Harry and Mary Kendall.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations in Kendall's name may be made to the Bradley Fund, Bradley University, Peoria, IL, or to the Friends of the Wheaton Municipal Band, Wheaton, IL. Granddaughter Melinda is a member of that summer band."
