Jim Rees, born 14 Jun 1933 in Springfield, IL. but was raised in Bloomington. He went to the Univ. of Illinois for 4-1/2 years and in 1956, got a draft notice so he joined the Air Force ROTC program. Graduated and in May of 1956, started pilot training in Arizona. After half way through, they closed the base. In July 1957, Jim married Jo and then there was another base closure in Ft. Worth. In San Francisco, he flew RC-121 radar planes.

He left the service in July 1960 and went to work for Underwood Olivetti and in 1962, moved to Denver for 6 months, then to Colorado Springs as a branch manager. They closed that office and he made another move. After moving around a little more, he came back to Denver and got into real estate with a couple former co-workers, then went out on his own and has been since 1975.

Jim and Jo have been married almost 50 years, have 2 children, a son and daughter and several grandkids. Jim was brought into the club my Bob Stein on Feb. 2005, sat on several chairs and was a President and is now our Governor.
