Meet Jim


Jim was born in North Dakota, but his family settled in Bend when he was 5, so yes, he has seen a lot of changes! He is so old that when he was in high school there was only one of them, which makes him a proud Bend High Lava Bear. After college he returned home and began a career in healthcare management/administration, first in human resources at St. Charles Medical Center for 20 plus years and currently as the practice manager for Central Oregon Pathology.


Jim and his wife Julane joined the New Hope family shortly after getting married in 1994. They have a son currently studying at Whitworth University in Spokane and another son attending Trinity Lutheran High School. And let’s not forget about the two dogs and one fish.

Other Interests

Even though he is an avid golfer, he also dabbles in several other central Oregon offerings such as camping, skiing, hiking, kayaking, mountain biking and best of all, hanging with his family and friends.
