Jim graduated from Louisiana Tech with a Bachelor’s of Arts degree in Finance in 1978. Jim like his father, Mac McConathy, was a leader and top agent throughout his distinguished career at New York Life. Jim earned his designation as a lifetime council member in the Million Dollar Round Table during his forty years in the investment industry and developed many lasting relationships among his associates and clients. He was a sports enthusiast and a great supporter to all of his sons and his grandsons in their athletic endeavors. Jim made a point to be at every one of his sons’ games. He was an avid bow hunter with a particular interest in the white-tail deer. What Jim enjoyed most were good times with friends and family. He never met a stranger and collected friendships all throughout his life. Jim was deeply loyal to those friendships and to his family. His spirit of generosity in life and appreciation for a great story will be missed.
