He graduated high school from Ellensburg in 1979. Jim worked construction for Willett's Custom Building with his dad and brothers and was a very talented carpenter. He married shortly out of high school and had two children, Nathan and Brandi Willett. He loved his nephews Cody and Shane Willett, Justin and Ryan Fowler and Brendan Willett as well as his nieces Cory, Melanie, and Tiffany Willett.
Jim enjoyed nice pick-ups, hunting Chinook pass, fishing the high mountain lakes and the outdoors. He was a very giving person and would go out of his way to help a friend.
Family was the most important thing to Jim. He loved animals and many people knew Jim for having a pet cougar named Trouble. He lived with his significant other, Pam Noland for the last 18 years. Pam and Jim enjoyed watching NASCAR. He was always the life of the party and will be missed by many.
