IJSBA is very saddened to announce the passing of Jim Lamber, PWC Race organizer, occasional IJSBA promoter, World Finals official, and all around great person.  Jim ran the very popular DJSA race series that carried Northern California for a considerable time.  Nobody since has been able to fill this void.  His dedication to the sport and the people in it, especially the young people of NorCal will never be surpassed.  A memorial of life will take place on February 13.  Please see the official statement from the family below:

Family and friends of Jim, 


Jim touched many lives and leaves behind a void in many of our hearts. Jim did not want a funeral or a service, he wanted people to remember him with a Celebration of Life at the place he lived, worked, and loved; Orwood Resort. 


Jim’s Celebration of Life will be held on Tuesday, February 13th from 2 PM- 6 PM at Orwood Resort, 4451 Orwood Road Brentwood 94513. 


Food will be provided along with soft drinks and water. The restaurant bar will be staffed for those wishing to purchase alcohol. We expect a large crowd and there will be plenty of parking in the lower lots behind the restaurant.


Please RSVP so we can get an approximate head count of how many people to expect and how much food and supplies we need to order. 


Please RSVP via email to bolo185@comcast.net with:
