A Message from Tom Chase

I first met Jim while visiting my parents in Maine. I eventually realized that the CEO of Laura Ashley was pulling my Dad's wharf out of the lake with his tractor.

Jim and Shoshana looked after my parents in their later years. They would check on them, have them for dinner, bring the kids over for visits, bring their trash to the dump, upgraded their 1940' camp with a sink and refrigerator from one of their house rehab's, and basically always helped them in anyway they could.

My siblings would get jealous that my parents had more pictures of Chloe and Jake on their fridge than they did of our kids!

I don't know of Jim's business acumen. I only know of a guy that worked hard in his fields, was a loving husband, proud father, and always had a patient, thoughtful smile on his face.

RIP Jim Maxmin

All our love to Shoshana, Chloe, and Jake from the Chase family (Tom, Meg, Emily, and Anna)
