In Memory of Jim Cusack, founding member of Side by Side. Jim passed away on June 14, after a brief illness. Jim was a gentle, humble man who lived his faith. In retirement he worked tirelessly to help those in need.
Jim was the loving, accepting heart of Side by Side when clients came. He would listen, offer information, and always make each person feel valued and worthy.
Sometimes he was late arriving at meetings because he was coming from his volunteer work at a detention center – or having driven someone to Chicago to immigration court. Or maybe he had been at a meeting at his beloved church or some other meeting that was also working to address the needs of those less fortunate.
His caring and joyous spirit knew no boundaries. He will be missed. Thank you Jeanne and all your family for sharing Jim with Side by Side and all the others with whom he shared his faith and love.
RIP dear uncle Jim! I have no doubt that Jesus met you with these words: “Well done thy good and faithful servant” All my love to Aunt Jeanne, Deb, Diane, Jim, John and their families. Keeping you all in my prayers ❤️
The article below is by a friend and Voces co-laborer.
Jim Cusack was a lifelong fighter for justice and a vital friend of Voces. (an organization defending immigrant & low wage worker rights.) He was a retired union carpenter of Irish descent and he honored his own family roots of fighting discrimination and lived his faith every moment, every day in every action to help the weakest among us. For years, he accompanied many immigrant workers and their families by driving them to their ICE court appointments in Chicago to provide moral support and help people get there who are denied the right to drive and work legally to support their families. Many times he came to our office to bring people. He drove to meet the organization and staff and share his reflections on the injustices he saw. He visited many immigrants in detention centers and prayed with them with a prisoner’s rosary made of yarn. He always marched and voted and organized for justice. He never stopped fighting.
A postcard that arrived from him Sunday said, “I see myself in you and Voces. ‘Be not afraid. I am not afraid. We are asked to walk together, love and take care of one another.’” (St. Francis) Solidarity, Jim. “
Our condolences to his wonderful wife, Jeanne, and his family.
Rest In Peace, Jim. We will keep the struggle going in honor of our Jim and other fallen heroes who fought with us
