It is with the greatest sadness that I must report the passing of long time IPMS Seattle and NWSM member and great friend Jim Schubert. Jim died this morning in hospital having gone in for an emergency gall bladder operation over the weekend. Jim was in great spirits following the operation yesterday, but as the day progressed, his body began to shut down, and he died of a heart attack. Thankfully he was able to have his wife Razon together with his daughter and step daughters by his side during his last hours.
I have briefly been in touch with Jim’s family to give my deepest condolences on behalf of the Club, and have been told there will be no public funeral. However, there WILL be a special memorial gathering for all Jim’s modeling friends at a date yet to be announced. I will inform the members once I have full details for the Memorial event.
President, IPMS Seattle
