He worked as a route driver for Pepsi Cola & Anderson Erickson. Jim concluded his career after 32 years with Perishable Distributors of Iowa (PDI). Throughout his time at PDI, Jim worked overnight as a transportation generalist and finally retired from PDI as a route driver serving multiple states throughout the Midwest.

Additionally, Jim enjoyed spending time riding his motorcycle exploring many different states throughout the U.S. Jim had a love for the open road.
