Marion, We were so sorry to hear about Jim. He taught so many of us junior officers in VA 75 how to be not only good technicians but also how to be good Naval Officers. Denise and I send our best regards. Mike Schuster

Marion, my condolences to you and the family. Captain Kennedy was THE best. We have all lost a great role model, mentor, shipmate and friend. The Captain touched so many lives in such a positive way while in the service of our Country that no one can come close to knowing the good he did. My heart goes out to you and my prayers are with you and the family in this time of mourning. Please know that all that had the honor of knowing and serving with him mourn his passing with you and the family he loved so very much.
