Jim Gates
Residing In: Ostrander, OH USA
Spouse/Partner: N/A
Occupation: Arborist / Recreation and Parks / Columbus, Ohio
Children: Elizabeth born May of 1992.... AKA Liz or Boo. What a great gift she is. She can light up a room or More…a stage. She's really into a lot of activities... I think mostly because she was an only child raised in the country. She's in; Student Council, Peer Tutoring, Freshman Focus, Be the Change Team, Suicide Prevention, Special Education Tutor, Musicals, Student Coalition for the Betterment of Marysville, Family-Community and Career Leaders of America Group, Varsity Golf, Show Choir, Class Officer, Prom Committee, a journalist representing our school in the local newspaper, has a job at Doc's, and manages to make mostly straight A's in school. It wears me out thinking of it...... I'm really glad she's driving on her own now.....
Yes! Attending Reunion
If you could have a theme song that played every time you walked into a room, what would it be and why?

I thought I would get into the spirit of things and actually update my profile in preparation of the reunion. So here it is.....

I work for the City of Columbus' Recreation and Parks Department in the Forestry Division. I started here in 1980 while I attended OSU. It was my summer job that never went away. All in all, it's been a great place to work. I'll be able to retire in a couple of years. I won't be rich but I'll be secure and have a comfortable base to start my second career. I'm still working on the details of that. I've been married to a wonderful woman for the last 18 + years, although we are in the process of divorce. 19 years was great and we have a wonderful child. We both just decided that it's time to move on ..... kinda sad, kinda exciting too... I've got great friends and family. I play kickball on Tuesday nights (tougher than it sounds)... and love to play golf. I try to exercise to keep the pounds off but I'm afraid it's a losing battle ....... There's a snapshot...... Looking forward to seeing everyone soon..... bye
