Remembering James Kim

jameskim.jpgSearchers locate the body of missing CNET editor in Oregon wilderness, two days after wife and children rescued. Kim, 35, left his family’s stranded car Saturday morning searching for help and never returned.

Arrangements are being made to transport Kim to the Oregon State Police office in the town of Central Point, Ore., for a medical examination, according to police. Kim had been missing in the remote southwestern Oregon wilderness for 11 days and was found at approximately noon Wednesday about half a mile from the Rogue River, authorities said.

I never had the pleasure of meeting James Kim face to face, although I’m sure we have bumped into each other at a few trade shows. Being in the same media sector that I cover, I feel the lost of James Kim as one of my own.

My deepest condolences goes out to the Kim family. Jame Kim gave his life to save his family. He is a true hero.
