James Gill, Jr. March 5, 1975 - November 23, 2021 Jim grew up in Carmel. He attended All Saints and graduated from the Stevenson School (RLS), where he was an all-league lineman on the football team. He began his college years at Cal Poly SLO. After his sophomore year, he took time off to work and graduate from the rigorous Butte Fire Academy. Jim finished his bachelor's degree at CSUMB. While attending CSUMB, he began working at the local Trader Joe's. This grew into a full-time pursuit, with a wonderful group of friends and colleagues, that he made into a career for nearly 15 years. Jim recently moved to Lake Tahoe - a very special place to him. Throughout his life, he enjoyed skiing, hiking, the lake and the beautiful surroundings. He was also a lifelong 49ers fan and famous for his tailgate barbeques. He is survived by sisters Christy, Demi, and Katie Pappas, brother Chris Gill, mother Jana Gill, nieces Samantha and Delaney Gill, his dog Maddie and many loving relatives and friends! Jim was a beautiful soul, gone too soon. He will be missed by so many.
