Jim was a great elevator mechanic and foreman, and ran the most organized job sites I’ve ever been on. I know he was not happy when I first came on site to work at USG but he pushed me to do better, and throughout my years at Otis I always appreciated that. To his family, I’m so very sorry for your loss.
Dear Focosi Family,
So very saddened by this news. I remember Jimmy as kind, easy going, a nice guy. Our families were close and we grew up together. Jim was always there help to out with my Mom, helping us move or paint a room. He will be remembered fondly by many. Family and friends. My sincerest condolences to his wife, daughter, brothers and extended family. Rest in peace…
