On September 5, 2023, we learned of the passing of Jim Jones, a former R&A colleague and friend. He was before then a friend and colleague to many of us over many decades.
Jim was one of the smartest people I knew, who could speak and write about almost anything under the sun. He also had a huge, huge heart, and was genuinely kind.
We invite those who knew Jim to share their memories of him here.Charmane Russell
6 September 2023: Jim Jones, former editor of Business Day from 1990 until 2001 who died on Sunday aged 81, was a larger-than-life figure. He had a remarkable range of historical and contemporary knowledge thanks to his voracious reading, observing of the world around him and persuading people to tell him things many came to regret he had been told.
