Jym had been coming to our Workforce office for the last few years. As a Veteran, I had the pleasure of working with him to visit new employment options. I am a Veteran myself in the position as a Veterans Workforce Specialist with the State of Wyoming. We connected because we both are veterans and we have both lived in Alaska and had many stories to exchange about living and working in the Alaskan frontier. He was always pleasant and I always looked forward to visiting with him. He always wore his blue coveralls and was ready to face the day at any time! He really did have a great smile!!!! When I heard of his passing, it really hit my heart...He will be greatly missed. God Bless you my friend!

Jym, we miss your smiling face. You always came to the lab with samples, a smile and your trusty dog companion. Rest in peace my friend, Hope and the staff at Wyoming Analytical Lab.
