Today we mourn the loss and celebrate the life of the incredible and highly respected journalist James B. Meadow. James was not only an unbelievable writer and colleague, but also a very dear friend of mine.

It’s hard to believe I met James almost 12 years ago at the Oxford Club and Spa. We would workout together, share stories, and bounce around ideas about the media and the crazy happenings of this world. My most favorite times where when he would give me “relationship” advice! He was a confident and a bright light in my life, and I am so thankful that our paths crossed.

My heart goes out to all those he loved so dearly, especially Julie, Miranda, and Matt – I feel so blessed, that through James, I got to know you! How grateful we are to have had such a positive and influential writer and friend in our midst.

With sorrow and joy, I’m thinking of you James. You were truly one of a kind! I will miss you Pal!
