“He was a large presence in our lives….It’s hard to imagine Williams without Jimmy, and his name… and his memory…will be there forever.”

—President Adam Falk in a post on the Wall Street Journal‘s MoneyBeat blog about the June 17 passing of James B. Lee ’75, a current Williams trustee, at the age of 62.

A vice chairman of J.P. Morgan Chase & Co., Lee was a deeply engaged volunteer and supporter of Williams. The Lee Family Track, part of the Weston Athletic Complex dedicated last fall, is named for his family, as is the Lee Snack Bar in the Paresky Center. Among many Williams friends and family members, he is survived by his wife Beth ’75 and their children Lexi ’04, Jamie ’06 and Izzy ’12.
