James and his wife, Kim, live in Montgomery, AL. They have three daughters, one son and three grandchildren. In his off time, James enjoys hunting, fishing, and golfing with his family.

“James is the kind of driver that every DM wants. He’s a “fire and forget” driver. I read over the load info, fire it off to James and forget about it. Forget about it NOT getting there on time and in one piece. Forget about any problems with it overnight. Forget about him saying he can’t make it happen. He makes my job a lot easier.”
