Fire Service Loss

Our hearts and prayers go out to the family, friends, and Orange County Fire Authority over the sudden loss of firefighter/paramedic Jim Owen

Jim was a former CDF'r who chose to stay with the new Orange County Fire Department. Keith Richter shared these thoughts; Jimmy is remembered as a man of good humor who always had an outstretched hand. I want to share something said by Eleanor Roosevelt that sums up my impression of Jimmy Owens "The purpose of life it to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience". Thanks to Keith Richter for those thoughts. CAL FIRE San Bernardino Unit couldn't agree more.

Firefighter/paramedic Jim Owens was 56 years old.
