He undertook graduate studies at the University of Illinois (MS) and Columbia University (EE) and devoted his career to telecommunications, working for Bell Labs, AT&T, and Lucent Technologies. He retired from Lucent as Switching Product Management Vice President in 2000. In retirement, Jim became a member of the University of Maryland's Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering Advisory Board, serving as Board President from 2006 to 2008.

In order to do so, they established an endowed fund to support undergraduate engineering students.
