Jim Moore

James "Jim" Moore passed away on Saturday, December 24, 2022, at the age of 81. Jim was born in El Dorado, Kansas on February 15, 1941 to parents, James and Doris Moore. After graduating from high school, Jim attended the University of Kansas where he completed an engineering degree. While at KU, Jim served in the ROTC program. Upon graduating, Jim worked as a mechanical engineer at Cessna in Wichita. During the early part of his career Jim put his career on pause and served in the US Army in Vietnam. Upon returning to the United States Jim resumed his career at Cessna. His interest in aviation didn't stop with his job, as Jim also became a pilot himself.
