My Memories of Jim McEntee

By: Gil Villagran, MSW, College of Social Work, San Jose State University

I first met Jim McEntee in 1972 when he facititated an offsite for a group of Latino community leaders who had been challenged by differences in strategies on how to achieve our common goals for social and economic justice. By Jim not being Latino, but having a reputation of working for social justice for all people, he was able to work with us to recognize our common goals and re-energize us to work together harmoniously.

Jim McEntee was the kind hearted voice of wisdom that day and for the next 32 years.
