Our dear family member and friend, Jim Feldmann (George James Feldmann), passed away unexpectedly.  Just 46 years old.  He was returning home to see us all from a year long trip to India and Portugal and was struck by a vehicle in NY.  We are devastated.

When considering Jim's life experiences we decided instead of selecting a single group or organization we are setting up a Memorial Fund in his honor.  In lieu of flowers any are welcome (but none expected) to donate to the fund.  The Jim Feldmann Memorial Fund has been established to inspire people to care and connect with communities and cultures around the world.  The funds may be used to help non-profit organizations, communities in need and we hope to create a scholarship for a student to study abroad while helping a community in need.

"Dear Jim, I have thought of you so often over this holiday season.  We just celebrated Three Kings Day on Saturday here in Portland.  We brought you into our service.  I felt you there strongly. Know that you are loved and missed and always will be. Take care, my friend."

This tribute was added by Jan Rhine on 25th October 2017

"Dear Jim, two months ago today you left us.  I still feel the grief, the disbelief, the loss.  I miss you!  I keep waiting for you to come home from your India and Portugal trip.  Last night, I even had a dream about that.  In the dream, I waited for your bus to arrive, hoping and praying that you'd be on it... that the memorial service we'd held for you had been premature... that your death had been a terrible misunderstanding.  But, in my dream, you were not on the bus.  And when I woke up this morning, I realized that you were not coming back and that today marked 2 months since your death.  Know that your spiritual family here in Portland love and miss you so much!  You are with us in Spirit and in our hearts, even though you no longer grace us with your physical presence. May you be happy, at peace, dancing and singing and having a grand old time where you are now.  Much love to you, my dear friend and brother."

"I never knew Jim personally but just wanted to share an encouraging message.  From what I read in the comments it seems he was very loved by all who knew him.  Take comfort I knowing he is at peace now.  We can look forward to a time when Revelation 21:3,4 will be fulfilled when God will wipe out every tear from people's eyes and death will be no more. Until then deepest sympathy--- Julia"

"My deep condolences to the family and friends of our beloved James. I met James just this summer in Portugal. I loved getting to know James and thought we would meet up back home sometime in the future. No one could have expected this, but all are done by His Grace and by His Grace alone so I know you are taken care of. I enjoyed being around James and thought he was a beautiful being. Thank you for shining your Light on us beloved James."

"Jim- I will miss our wild conversations about everything from robots to climate change to all things spiritual. Your quirky sense of humor and sense of a larger perspective brought me a lot of joy in our day to day work.  I always respected your deep commitment to the causes you cared about, and how you always did your best to live out your values.

While I am extremely saddened by your passing I am grateful that in your final year here you did exactly what you felt you needed to do. Not many people can let it all go and pursue their own path, and you did that. Your life will continue to inspire me, and you will be missed.

Rest easy my friend."

"Jim (family and friends),

I was so shocked and saddened to hear the news of your passing.  I had been thinking of you and wondering how you were faring in India; waiting until you were back to hear of your adventures and your latest ideas - for yourself, your community, and the world.  I appreciated your sensitivity, sweetness, kindness, and the passion you had for your work.  You will be very much missed Jim.  Phyllis"

"The Community of Ajatananda Ashram, Rishikesh (North India) has, with great sorrow, come to know of the sudden death of their beloved brother and friend, James.

James first came to our Ashram in mid-September last year, and almost immediately came forward to volunteer as a part of the Satsang team. In January, he served as an integral part of the team in Tiruvannamalai (South India). From February onwards, James returned to the Ashram and kindly offered to take up the role of Volunteer Coordinator. His full-time commitment to the Ashram Community was recognized and appreciated by everyone, and we received a great amount of heartfelt praise from visitors and friends.

James was a much-loved member of our spiritual family, and we continue to cherish his memory. We all feel immense gratitude for James’ presence among us during the last year of his life.

We extend our deepest condolences and sympathy to his relatives and friends, and we keep praying that the Supreme Peace will be granted to his departed soul on its journey towards the boundless Oneness."

"Our neighborhood and the world is a better place because of you, Jim.  You united everyone with your charisma.  I will deeply miss not seeing you wave across the street every morning saying, "Hi, neighbor!"  You were the first person that came to introduce yourself within minutes of me moving into my house.  That is a true neighbor.  You also would really make my day, being a chocoholic, by giving me chocolate bars from your work.  

At least a few times a week, I would inquire when you were coming back from your most recent journey.  The entire neighborhood is still waiting to see your smile.  I suppose, in a way, you still are on your journey traveling to another place.  Words do not express how much we will miss you.  We plan on making a street art mandala that the neighbors will create together in honor of you.  I also was able to, after much persistence with the city, finally get a streetlight that shines now in front of your house that is dedicated, "Jim's Light."  Your beautiful spirit will always be here with us."

"Beloved James and Family,

Here's a note we received from our librarian in Monte Sahaja (place that he came to visit regularly during his stay in Portugal) and she wished to share it with you:
““ feeling so deeply about James  !  He came most
of the time - when being in Sahaja - into library , he
loved it to read there and to sit quietly. Often he sat
also outside still and happy. When i have been around
always saying the same things to people with ice cream on
the couches …he smiled, i smiled , we were totally together
about the comics of the situation and we felt funny and happy.
We did (almost) not speak with each other, looking into each others eyes was enough and very peaceful - a rare experience in a light but deep way. Sometimes i pondered about him because i felt such a rare energy surrounding him. He was  soft , caring, strong and somehow here and not here.  It has been so good to have him around and to know him.“"

Our deep love and condolences are with you."

"Dear Jim, I miss you.

Was really hoping to see you soon and hear your travels stories.
I wish my little baby girl Immanuele, now 21months old, would have seen your smile…
I will always remember our talks, always constructive with a pinch of questioning presented in a smile. You, as a great organizer and problem solver, you showed me how to delegate with empowering me and others to do the best we can. Always supportive, always there for friends and community.
Your latest pictures, you look amazing, the transformation feels immense, I am glad to see and remember you this way.
Suzanne misses you and cry’s deeply for your departure, We are left with wishes that we will meet another lifetime again.
You are in our hearts forever.

To the family,
Jims memory is a calm deep lake in my heart, I will always have a smile thinking of him and with a tear close for his loss. May his soul rest in peace. he is so loved.

"Dear Jim,
I have never had a greater shock in my life then when Dad told me you passed away, I remember that moment so clearly, after he told me the horrible news I just froze, there was nothing that I could say, I felt as if my lungs collapsed because I could not breathe, I remember feeling as if I was in a terrible nightmare that I could not wake up from. I still feel like that now, I miss you and there is nothing I can say to bring you back, or anything I can do to show how truly painful this has been, but all I can say is that I love you and that I hope heaven is much better than Earth, and that you are watching over us all and trying to get us through this as a family"

"I grew up with Jim when he lived in Berkeley so many years ago. He was a very kind soul and a great kid. My deepest condolences goes out to his mom Kathy  and brothers. He was taken from you much too early. It's nice to see that Jim lived life to its fullest."

This tribute was added by Mark Sawyer on 5th September 2017

"I met James in India around New Year's. He was in Tiru by the holy mountain Arunachala to attend the satsang of Swami Atmananda of Rishikesh. He impressed me as a very interesting and intelligent man. When I saw him later in Rishikesh in February he had taken on a glow; a glow that I can only call a sign of coming to a high spiritual place, one of inner peace and oneness.
I'll miss him, and will always remember him that way."

This tribute was added by P J on 5th September 2017

"What is evident by reading the many tributes and memories shared is that Jim was very much loved and touched many lives.  My deepest sympathy to all his family and friends. Death is an enemy that causes much pain. Life was meant to be enjoyed endlessly and God has promised to bring about a time when we will see our loved ones again at Revelations 21: 3, 4.  Until then may the God of all comfort be with you."

"Jim, from the first day I came to Equal Exchange, you offered your friendship and smiles unconditionally. Even when we disagreed and argued, we would find a way to end with a smile. You were always so willing to love everyone around you, always so thoughtful and caring of people's hearts. Even after I left Equal Exchange and moved away, you sent my husband and I a gift card to have dinner in a really nice restaurant. We were in grad school and poor and homesick. It was so thoughtful and so kind and warmed our souls. Then years later we got to talk on the phone and it was like there was never any time lost. I am thankful I got to know you. I can't believe you are gone.

This tribute was added by Adam Schaeffer on 4th September 2017

"What a blessing it was to get to know you, Jim, through 10+ years of working together at Equal Exchange. Your love, humanity, and zeal for life was evident in your humor, patience, kindness, compassion, and thoughtfulness. This week has brought back fond memories of how pumped and excited you could get, the delightful twinkle in eyes, your head back laugh, your beaming smile, the earnest determined look of a serious problem solver... so many great, and fully honest expressions! I've been thinking of our work partnerships, tussles, and successes, the clever little gifts you gave to my boys, shared "misery" over mechanical failures and home repairs, the many times our conversations would turn to the spiritual, the scare we had when an earthquake struck Peru and you were in a remote part of the country, the time we crashed each other's date night and shared a great meal... cherished, unforgettable memories. Thank you for being such an open and wonderful person! When you left EE, I didn't think it was "goodbye," and I told you I expected to see you someday with a long beard, blissed-out, perhaps even levitating; maybe in Portland, or halfway around the world. I'm heartbroken to know that you have left us so early, but seeing the many photos of you in the last year, beaming and unshaven, has given me comfort and peace. Goodbye, dear friend. Stay close, as always. Adelante!"

"Jim, I remember when you first started coming to ceremonies and I always liked talking to you and hanging out. I could feel your peace and heart. I'm still shocked that you left the world here so suddenly and feel a lot of sadness. Blessings on the next phase of your journey. Lots of Love, Andy"

"I want to start by saying my sympathy to the Feldmann family. Words can not express how deeply sorry I am for their loss. I've know Jim's mom Kathy for over 25 yrs she has always been one of by bestest friends in this world! She would always talk to me about how proud she was of all her boys. The last time I saw Jim was at his mom wedding, Jim came over by me and hugged and kiss me and we talked for along time that  I forgot I came there with my husband. He was such a handsome person and his smile took your breath away. You are now in Heaven with your grand father I'm sure you have a lot to catching up with him. Rest In Peace my sweet friend, you will truly be missed from everyone!"

"I met Jim my first week at Proviso.  I was a senior, newly transferred in.  He turned around in his seat, smiled, wrote his name on the font of my binder in permanent magic marker, and then gave me the most amazing smile.  And I stared back like did you really do that?  I was freaked out and so intrigued.  I looked at that name every day that year.  Jim's energy is just what this world needs.  I will smile at people and do silly and important things daily in your honor. I am grateful I knew you at such a special time in my life."

"Just 3 years ago I asked Jim if I could stay with him for a few days while visiting Portland, that turned into a year and a half of sharing a home and life together. In this time we got to know each other so well. He coached me through the first moments of meeting a man who is now my husband and eventually lived with us as well. We went through so much all together in this time. He was an endlessly supportive and understand friend. I will forever cherish that experience and that I got to call him one of my closest friends. I love you forever Jim!"

"Dear Beloved Jim,

So much love here for you. I feel like your family is my family, even though we have never met. I loved seeing the pictures of you with your family and friends- so very touching. I feel so blessed to have spent time with you in Portugal - your love, devotion and dedication to Truth and unconditional Love shining and shining. Such inspiration.  You followed your Heart- and this is Joy itself. You are always a light in my heart and for this I am most grateful.  Love always, Cay"

"Dear, dear, Jim.  I miss you so much!  It was hard when you left for India but it helped to email and talk with you on the phone.  I was waiting eagerly for you to come home.  You were held in our hearts and prayers here in Portland as you went on your spiritual pilgrimage. The grief I feel now is intense - knowing that I will never see your beautiful smile, hear your encouraging words, hang together with our community at your house, go on 'walk and talks', go out for Pho (especially for our birthday celebrations), sing and pray with you in our sacred works... You were such a bright light when you were here with us.  Your Light now shines even brighter in this magnificent new place you find yourself in.  Your gentle, kind spirit impacted so many lives and your love and service to anyone that came into your path was so beautiful.  Your Heart was so big!  Your Star was called Home too soon but you will live forever in our hearts.  You are our own Star Angel now.  May the love and prayers you feel from all those of us who love you, support you in your transition.  We will meet again in Spirit, sweet Jim."

"To my friend and brother, James:

Your season has ended, beloved. You go to join the unborn sky, where swirling stars shine their Light on all that is. Neither distant nor cold - verily, these stars are blazing Suns, Lighting up all Hearts across all Worlds. There are never, and has never been, two stars. You are with us, beloved, in form or without. Such is the mystery of this divine play, where We met, laughed, and played. Such is The Throne of God, where We rest.

Beloved friend. Never shall we be apart. You are always in my Heart.

Om, amen, hallelujah.

"Your presence here in this place, where I rejoice my heart fully with our Sangha that you were a part of, has been very important to myself .

I really felt you were a pure man and a light being.  You worked tirelessly on the land and your devotional commitment was one of example.  

The Bhagavad Gita Says " And Whosoever leaving the body goes forth remembering Me Alone at the time of death, he Attains MY Being; there is no doubt about this."

You were remembered by our Master and He loves you.  He blesses your soul to be free, may you join The Supreme  Being and Be One with That Peace.

Thank you !

"Although our meeting was brief, it was a truly special experience.  James was  so incredibly sweet and funny as well. Every encounter we shared was filled with kindness and humor. An incredibly gentle being. He was also very generous and giving of himself. Always willing to help and being of service.  I still feel his sweet presence now.
I love you James.

"Six years in visits... there were so few. Big brother, though we we did not have much time to talk in between, you have always been a gem to me. By-the-way, the first time I met you in Portland, I think my heart may have skipped some beats; running into you on the stairs. Such a handsome man! How lucky I was to get to have some time with you and to know you as you are at home. I experienced you with your brothers and sisters, in service, and barefoot in the living room. I observed the kindness generated in your words and YOUR LAUGHTER, which I found as treasure. I cherish and love you and will remember you each day and wonder very curiously of what this next chapter for you could be like. I will miss you simultaneously.  I appreciate every tear and moment when I think of the impressions you left for us here. Peace to all, may your grief and sorrow also bring beautiful gifts of memory in the waves."

"My experiences talking to Jim always left me wanting to continue the conversation.   As someone who thinks their socially conscious, Jim always made me look at things in a whole different perspective.   His beliefs greatly influenced how he lived and worked.   If there were more people like Jim in the world today, there would be more kindness, less greed, more empathy and more people actively enaged in their community in the hope of making it a better place for all."

This tribute was added by Gayle Highpine on 2nd September 2017

"I knew Jim as a member of the Daime community in Portland.  Jim was a person of strong social consciousness and a natural mediator and counselor and actively tried to build community and resolve issues between people.  He was an empathic listener and he cared.  He reached out to people who were alienated and let them know that someone heard them and cared about what they were feeling.  He cared about doing the right thing and making the world a better place.  The world has lost a special person with Jim."

"My dear beautiful first born son, I last spoke to you on Sunday Aug. 20th. It was short conversation but we always finished with "I love you". Throughout the years and all your adventures I would listen to the stories, and especially loved it when I heard you laugh, I could see your face, I can still hear you say  "hi mom" . You got me to finally try Yoga by taking me to a class.  I have continued for over two years, thanks to you my beloved son. My heart is torn in half, and you have it. May you be at peace, and know always how much I love and will miss you. Mom"

"Dearest Jim, Your good love has changed my life forever! You ALWAYS greeted me with a smile and a big hug.Thank you for seeing my hidden talents and your forgiveness of my obvious faults. I appreciate your encouragement to take on my first big "church job and your support to be of deeper service to our spiritual community. Thank you for comforting me when my father passed away. Thank you for jump starting my car out in the deep wilderness. Thank you for hiring me to do healing sessions for your company members. All in all, just THANK YOU!"

"Jim – How can you not be here with us? It does not seem possible. I, too, am comforted to read the notes from those who loved you and shared the more recent part of your life.  We go way back. And lost touch as the years became messy and complicated. Such good memories. Although I was the only girl in our mix of you, Eric, Andy, Terry and Matt, I found a soul mate in you.  So many good memories of dinners together as families at our house and yours, swimming at the pool, church, and the many talks we had of families, the future and the bitter sweetness of this life.  You were kind, gentle, loving, patient, calm, direct and funny.  Ok, and maybe a little a dark and intense at times!  Which I believe came from your braveness of taking all life has to offer in and your ability to connect with others. You saw and felt the pain and beauty of life. How amazing to learn of all of your adventures and where you took your life. The road less traveled, for sure, was the path you were meant for.  I will always miss you. I will always remember your kind gestures.  How I wish I was telling you all of this now in person, so I could see your smile and that twinkle in your eyes, hear your laugh and have you respond. I hope you knew how much you were loved.  I hope you felt how special you were. I will keep your parents, Andy, Eric and Anna and all of your family and dear friends in my thoughts as they now start a new chapter without your physical presence. What a legacy you have left behind and a gift you were to everyone who knew you."

"Dear Jim, you were so quick with a smile and a hug and an offer of help and understanding. Generous and kind, you brightened each life you touched.  You enriched my life whether you were next to me telling a story or off on one of your great adventures.  Our family has a hole in its heart."

"I had known Jim since 1st grade and over the years our friendship grew as we got to know each other more through grade school, junior high, high school and in college as roommates.  He had been a best friend throughout those years.  We’d often talk of what we’d do when we grew up.  And although our journeys in life took different paths after college, I always counted him as a best friend.  

I looked forward to his stories of the journeys he would take, always wondering how he’d do it and where he’d go next.  I ran into his brother Eric and he told me about his latest studying yoga/spirituality in Rishikesh India.  And just as I’d done for his journeys before, I’d check out the location on Google Maps and take a tour of the location, imagine the streets he’d walk along and thought of what Jim would be doing.  

As news of his passing came and his mother showed me a picture of him on the bridge in Rishikesh, I incorrectly stated I’d seen this picture before and then realized I hadn’t.  In fact, that picture was the journey I took with him via google maps on the Ram Jhula bridge and how I had actually pictured him in my mind on that same bridge exactly as he was, smiling.  

My conversations with his mother over the years would often end with “you know Jim – he’s a free spirit.”  Well now his spirit is free and we are all richer to have known him.  Memory Eternal"

"My dear friend, as I travel down memory lane I realize just how wonderful life was when sharing it with you.  Many of us are blessed to have known you when we were kids, during a life less complicated, full of hopes and dreams and countless fulfilling experiences.   I am so saddened about your passing, but as I sit here remembering our time together I realize one thing, you with your wonderful heart, with your strong belief that anything is possible, in your unrelentless pursuit of a better earth, you have lived a longer life than many people who live to be 100.  I am very happy to hear about more recent friends that speak about the sate of your inner journey and your spirituality, because I know that this is what enriched your life..  As I sit here regretting not having spent more time with you and feeling sad that the last time I saw you was so long ago, just reading through the tributes of people whose lives you’ve touched all around the world makes me realize that I was blessed with more than my fair share.  I truly believe that your purpose in this world was fulfilled and that you have been called to a higher cause.  I will always remember how you taught me to look at life with confidence, without excuses.  I will always find comfort in the wonderful memories I have of time spent with your family, who always made me feel as a part of it.  I will always think of you when i’m faced with adversity or doubt to remember how important it is to continue to dream big.  To this day I live by some of your most eloquent words “where there is a will …. there is a pumpkin”  Please know that even though you hadn’t been around Chicago very much, you were always in our thoughts.  I can’t think of one reunion with our high school friends when your name was not brought up.  I will always remember those high school parties which you produced and always turned into major events.  I will always remember your leadership, your calm demeanor, and your smile. I love you Jim, rest in peace."

Eu não sei direito o quê dizer, mas achei que você gostaria de ver algo em português nesse site. Sempre respeitei seu jeito de ser e te agradeço por ter me respeitado também. O seu amor pela vida e sua paixão por lutar contra a injustiça foram sempre muito adimeràveis. Fico te devendo o abraço que te prometi. Espero que tenha encontrado o que foi procurar.

"" Jim - thank you for all the good times in my life that we have shared. You were the best Dungeon master, film director, friend and most of all brother a person could have ever meet!!!! You never did anything half ass. It was all or nothing!!! You loved learning new things and the challenges that came with them. You will always be in my thoughts. On those days I laugh out loud and people think I'm crazy, only you and I will know!!!"

"I will always love the sweet, intelligent, idealistic, and incredibly thoughtful young man I knew so long ago. Though many years have passed since we spoke, I am terribly saddened to learn of Jim's passing. It seems that through All this time, somehow just knowing that he was out there alive and well in this big world, being exactly the man he wanted to be, was tucked away in my mind. He will forever be with me, a young and free soul who made an enormous impact on my life. I wish peace and courage to his family, I am truly sorry for your loss. Above and beyond all else, Jim had much love in his short time with us. He will be remembered by so many, and so fondly."

What a good, kind man who went out of his way to help me and opened his home to me.

God bless you Jim, see you on the other side bro. Richard"
