I met Jim through playing with the ULL Symphony. I enjoyed many conversations with Jim and he was always encouraging to me as one of the older members of the Symphony. I, and many of us will miss him greatly. My prayers are with his family.

"Mr. Jim" was a member of our Myrtle Place Elem. family for many years. His students loved and respected him very much. I will remember him as a friend and kind co-worker who loved music and the game of soccer, and who was always a positive advocate for his students. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you.

I taught with Jim for many years. The students really loved their "Mr. Jim" and will be so sad to hear of his passing. He made learning fun and interesting for them. My condolences to the family who I feel I know from Jim's many stories about each of you. He cared so much for all of you and his "children" at school.

Jim was a friend and colleague for nearly 30 years. He was so intelligent and accomplished in so many fields: the arts, languages, technology among them. He inspired his colleagues to be creative and passionate in their teaching and was a kindred spirit for the gifted students he taught.

I knew Jim through his participation in the University of Louisiana Lafayette Symphony. He was a dedicated member of the viola section. He cared deeply about the orchestra and all of its participants. Last May he created the Jim Rogers Endowed String Scholarship. This new endowed scholarship will help UL string students for many years to come. Jim was always offering his time and energy to help many of us in any way he could. We will miss him greatly.

I knew Jim both as a patient and good friend. We were both musicians in the University of Louisiana Symphony and the Lafayette Community Strings. He was a very knowledgable man and always of good humor and nature and helpful whenever he could be. I will miss him. My condolences to the family of the late Jim Rogers and I will miss him. Sincerely, Sydney Crackower
