PRSAHouston Alert 17-Mar-10

Hello [firstname],

We Mourn the Passing of a Member

We regret to inform you of the death of long-time PRSA member James C. Myers, APR.  Jim, a member of PRSA since 1971, died peacefully on March 15, 2010, after a battle with cancer, according to today's Houston Chronicle.  Though Jim did not often come to PRSA Houston meetings in recent years, several times each year he called the office to comment about something the group was doing or to ask us to help him post information--usually about the Braes Oaks Management District.  He often started the conversation: "This is Jim Myers, the member you never see, and I wondered if you would just do me this one favor since I pay my dues all the time...."

The obituary notes that Jim served for 33 years in the U.S. Navy, retiring in 1996 as a Captain.  After working for a local PR firm and the Houston Post, he had a long career as president of Motivators, Inc.  For the past decade, Jim dedicated himself to community service, working tirelessly to enhance quality of life in the Brays Oaks District in southwest Houston.  He was an avid photographer, music lover and supporter of the Boy Scouts.  He has been married to Judy since Feb. 9, 1964.  Our condolences go to Judy, as well as his sons Jeffrey and Jeremy and his grandchildren, who survive him.  A memorial service will be held on Friday, March 19, at 2 p.m. at Congregation Emanu El, 1500 Sunset Blvd.  Contributions in Jim's memory can be made to the Brays Oaks Management District Community Development Fund, 10103 Fondren Rd., Suite 300 Houston, TX  77096.
