  1. I was shocked and saddened by the news of Jim’s passing. I want to express my sincere condolences to Carol and the family. May the memories and the love of family sustain you at this difficult time.

    During my career with Saturn, Jim earned my respect early on, and that respect continues to this day. He gave me the benefit of the doubt more often than I gave myself. As a sales consultant, I learned quite a bit about myself and how to interact with others, which has served me well in subsequent positions. Thank you, Jim, for giving me this career opportunity and the chance to join a special group of people.

    Rest in peace, Jim. I hope to see you again someday.

  2. What a great husband, friend, person and man! Although I only knew Jim for a handful of years, he leaves me with memories that will last for many years to come. It is with a heavy heart that I pray the Slatt family be blessed with the peace that passes all understanding. My continued prayers and support to Carol and the Slatt family. The Bible states, (in Philippians 4:7) And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding , will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
