Jim Bryan

Former EASA Technical Support Specialist
James “Jim” Allen Bryan, an EASA Technical Support Specialist from June 2010 through February 2018, passed away at his home in Glen Carbon, Illinois, on Tuesday, April 12. He was 71. In addition to his extensive knowledge of electromechanical repair and maintenance, he was well known for his sense of humor and positive attitude.

He is survived by his wife, Debbie; two daughters, Elizabeth (John) and Virginia (Apollo); four sons, Nathan (Tamara), James, Jr. (Kelly), Carl (Amanda) and Patrick; and 14 grandchildren.

Before joining EASA, Jim worked for more than 20 years at Emerson Motor Company (now Nidec Corporation) in St. Louis. Even before starting as an EASA employee, he was no stranger to EASA and EASA members. Before joining EASA as an employee, he had served as a volunteer on EASA’s Technical Services Committee.

“The time I spent with EASA has been rewarding,” said Jim in a 2018 Currents article announcing his retirement. “The family atmosphere permeates the organization from members, volunteer leaders and staff because of the really good people involved throughout. Thanks to all.”

EASA President & CEO Linda Raynes, CAE, noted that just knowing Jim improved the lives of those he met and worked with over the years. “Jim was a friend and teacher to many in his personal and professional life. He will be missed.”
