Outside the Office

Jim has two young boys and spends most of his time outside of the office with his wife and kids, usually playing outside or watching one of their (many) favorite television shows. Jim is also an avid Cleveland sports fan and can usually be found wallowing in yet another Cleveland-sports heartbreaking loss. Jim also likes to golf (although not well) and is a dedicated member of his local Orange Theory Fitness gym where he once ran a mile in under 5 1/2 minutes (which, for Jim, was very fast). When he has the time (which is not often these days) Jim also enjoys seeing live music.
