Jim is a greens keeper for a golf course in northern California, which is fitting, since he's an avid gardener as well. Because of recent budget cuts, the local high school asks many parents to donate about five hours a month to help out with the grounds, do custodial work, and pitch in with other tasks.
Jim and his wife have donated about three times that for the past several years. They help with fundraising for the school, managed a Swing Dance event, and always answer the call when the school needs a hand. Jim is also active with Habitat for Humanity, a charity close to Cabot's heart.
