Jsourbeck on ebay

Post by mikea96 »

Not sure how many people have used Jim aka jsourbeck on Ebay but I had been watching several of his items for quite sometime now waiting to purchase but his ebay store has said closed for vacation. I did a little search on google and saw that he passed away unexpectedly back in August. I have done lots of deals with him over the years and even had some phone conversations. He was an great guy to chat with. RIP Jim

Now that is sad news..... bought stuff off Jim back in the early days, back when eBay and the USPS did not combine to give you a pineapple enema.... great guy to deal with, never a problem, even with those of us down in the colonies.

Indeed, RIP Jim :cry:

I'm sorry to hear that, I too have bought parts from Jim.

54 is far too young to die!

RIP Jim.

Remember that Billy Joel song "Only the good die young" well couldn't be more true in this case for Jim. Many of us probably have personal remembrances about Jim and we will always have a place for him in our memories. R.I.P.

This is all very interesting!

Man that sucks. I was hoping this wasn't what you were going to post when I saw the topic. I didn't know him but did buy things from him and always had a super experience. Such a shame.

I had corresponded with Jim back on Aug 8. I purchased a Coyote body. I second all of the kind words. He will be missed.

Memorial is posted below - he was only 54.

Sad news indeed...

I did not have the privilege of knowing or talking directly with Jim but I purchased quite a few items over the years and it was a pleasure doing business with him.
