The Foundation for Sustainable Forests community, along with so many others across the state, is mourning the tragic loss of one of its treasured Board Members, Dr. Jim Finley.
Jim joined the FSF’s Board over ten years ago and has been invaluable to the organization’s development, most recently leading its long-term vision and strategic planning initiative.
Across the region, Jim has educated and served countless lives and organizations for decades, all as a champion of Pennsylvania’s forests and the people who own and steward them.
We can only begin to imagine the magnitude of this loss to the FSF and the whole region. For now, please include Jim’s friends and family in your thoughts as they grieve the loss of their husband, father, mentor and friend.
