Jim and I met on Facebook while we were both working on Beto for President. I’ve never met anyone else virtually who I felt closer to. His posts were always so positive. He was an optimist supreme and no how bad it got under Trump he kept his eyes on the prize, the 2020 ... Continue Reading

Jim was a good friend and a wonderful human being. If I had doubts about anything, I knew he was someone who would speak truth, someone I could count on. We'll all miss him, but he's still here with us.

In a year of so much loss the loss of Mr.Henley hits that much harder. Like nearly every student that walked through his door I feel forever affected and changed by knowing him and learning from him. The decision to join his speech & debate team forever changed the traje... Continue Reading

During Hurricane Harvey, my uncle was trapped in his home in League City. My sister and I posted (neither of us live in Texas anymore, but we had both been students of Mr. Henley at Lanier in the late 80s-early 90s). Mr. Henley not only went over to check on my uncle, bu... Continue Reading

And I was a part of one of his DC trips. He didn’t just teach us about government. She showed it to us. And wasn’t afraid to teach us about what the Clarence Thomas sexual harassment charge was. He taught us all of it. Best kind of teacher there was.

Mr. Henley you were one of the most special teachers I ever had, and your presence in my life for the past 30 years is something that I will always treasure. It meant everything in this whole world to me when you told me you were proud of the teacher I had become. And no... Continue Reading

He was one of the kindest, most compassionate, most caring, most genuinely loving souls I’ve ever had the pleasure to know. People like him are so rare. We are all better people for knowing him. The world is better because he was in it. I’m so thankful for that. May his ... Continue Reading

My sons' teacher, our family friend. Caring about his students, involved in their life, career, and always encouraging. One of a kind man that will be missed by all. Rest in peace Jim. My family will never forget you!

I cannot even write this without tearing up. Such a wonderful, sweet, ambitious (especially for his students), friendly, smart, loving...there are simply not enough positive words to describe Jim. I will miss his caring posts, his funny PMs, and that mischievous grin. We... Continue Reading

My thoughts and prayers are with you all. Jim was a good man who was so well-loved and respected, not only as a teacher, but tirelessly working in the political community in Houston. It is a great loss for all who were fortunate enough to know him.

I remember how I burst into tears when I pulled an unpopular debate topic during Lanier debate club, and Mr Henley kindly offered advice on it. He’s always been one of the kindest people I’ve ever known, and we were really looking forward to visiting with him again after... Continue Reading
